Marathonisi (Turtle Island), Limni Keri

#1 of 7 in Nature in Zakynthos
Must see · Island · Nature / Park
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. Our Limni Keri route website makes visiting Marathonisi (Turtle Island) and other Limni Keri attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Final drop off point after tour. Nice beach with clear water and a chance to spot the turtle. You can get a drink at one of the drinkboats. It is a beach where turtles lay there eggs, but it's well...  more »
