Fun for the kids with the turtle beach and all, "fun" driving the "speed" boat also by them, another place to see and swim in crystal clear sea water for all of us. In fine weather not to be missed. Enjoyed the ice cream as well.

I was on a girls holiday and we went here on our second last day. It was absolutely amazing great scenery beaches we stopped off at were pebble but gorgeous for a swim. Seen one turtle which was very lucky! Well worth going and it was only €14 for 3 hours out of your day.

Very beautiful place. Highly recommended in case if you are in Zakynthos. I very recommended to go this island with a rented motot boat from Limni Keriou. Million better than one organized boad trip.

Briliant day out, visited Keri Caves and Turtle Island. Saw 3 turtles, although they can never guarantee this. Stunning to see them in their natural environment. Lots of conservation going on to protect the turtles.

peaceful and quiet. beautiful views, and lovely clear waters. not really anything to do except sunbathe or swim but the boat trip as a while is well worth the experience.

Cost us 15 euros each for a three hour trip, which included a 45 minute stay at turtle island. although we didn't see any turtles there we spotted some on the boat earlier on. It's a beautiful little island and a lovely day out

The turtles were spectacular and the coast and sea awesome. The fact there was not a toilet on the boat was dismaying
