10 of us hired a boat and drove out to the island and went for a snorkel. One of the best trips we had in Zante!

Hire a boat from the beach & see the Island at your own pace. Visit in the morning before the countless numbers of excursions head in. Head towards Kalimaki & switch off the boats engine. The sea is so clear that you will spot the turtles on the bottom. Wait & they will surface.

Nice beach, not much space to swim but the water is very clear, we went for a trip with one of the boats, we saw keri caves then went to the island for 1 h to relax and after went back to look for some turtles. We found one!! Very good atmosphere on the boat! Great experience :-)
