Marathonisi is a small uninhabited island in the bay of Laganas, on the south side of Zakynthos. This turtle-shaped island is a destination that every visitor should visit. Marathonisi is part of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos where the Caretta-Caretta turtle is protected. It is also worth visiting the caves of Keri, a place of unique beauty where the vegetation and the wildness of nature mingle with the sea, creating a wonderful landscape.
From the center of Laganas beach, three times a day (at 10:00, 12:00 and 15:00) a glass-bottom boat departs for Marathonisi and the caves of Keri, spotting and photographing the sea turtles that live and move around in the bay of Laganas. After the turtle adventure, the boat arrives at Marathonisi where for about an hour the passengers will be able to tour around the island as well as swim in the wonderful sandy beach. After Marathonisi, the boat sails to the caves of Keri, where the green of the vegetation “meets” the blue of the Ionian Sea creating a magnificent scenery. The passengers of the ship can swim inside the caves to explore their beauty. After the visit to the caves of Keri, the boat slowly returns to the starting point, while sailing alongside the land, giving the passengers the opportunity to enjoy the landscape and fill their mind with wonderful memories. The duration of the trip is 3 hours.
