Marathonisi (Turtle Island), Laganas

(1,700+ reviews on the web)
Island
An island uninhabited except for the sea turtles, Marathonisi (Turtle Island) is part of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos, which strives to protect sea turtles and their habitats. You'll discover two beaches on the island--one sandy and one rocky. Book a boat tour to visit the island, or rent a motorboat to reach the island on your own. Even if the turtles aren't there when you visit, look for their tracks in the sand. If you stop at the sea caves on the other side of the island, you can snorkel and search for more sea turtles. Bring your own snacks if you wish; the island has no facilities. Put Marathonisi (Turtle Island) into our Laganas trip itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We went there with a taxi boat and we stayed almost all day. Very nice island, the crystal clear wather and the sand was great. People came go with the boats and can be quite crowded.  more »
  • Reading the reviews here I learned that on the island there are local so it is best to bring water and a snack. Is a very beautiful place, where the water is clean and clear. In the path to the island you can find at least one turtle caretta-caretta.
