Marathonisi Beaches - Zakynthos Greece
Marathonisi is a small uninhabited island, just off the coast of Laganas bay.
The island's shape resembles a turtle and it is also a nesting area for the Caretta Caretta turtles which is why it is affectionately known as Turtle Island.
There are two main beaches on Marathonisi, one is where the turtles lay their eggs in the soft golden sand and the other beach is pebbly with two coves nearby which are fun to discover and explore. Marathonisi can be reached from either Laganas beach or Keri Lake by hiring a boat.
It is a lovely place to visit for a tranquil day of swimming and sunbathing. There are no facilities on this beach, so it is preferable to have water and anything else you might need during your swim.
