We did a private boat tour to this island last week so there was no one there. It was like paradise! The sea was a stunning blue and the beach had 'blond' sand as they described and we spent an hour enjoying the sun and privacy on the little beach. The views were amazing. One of the best experiences of... More

Absolutely gorgeous place, a must-visit if you're in the area. We went on a boat trip which took us to the local Keri caves, where we had a swim. Gorgeous, clear waters and simply idyllic. The island is a protected nesting site for turtles so you can only step a few feet onto the island, but it is such a... More

This little island is fantastic. You will love the beach. If you intend to stay there long enough, be sure to have your umbrella because you will not find shade. You can rent a boat from lagana beach and go to marathonisi (I recommend you to do so because you will stay there as long as you like). The prices... More

We took a turtle tour from Laganas to turtle island. We saw one big beautiful Loggerhead turtle on the way to the island in the bay. The boat driver stayed with it for a good 20 mins for us to watch and take photos as it was showing off and blowing bubbles. The tour then went around the back of... More

100% recommended. Been to Zante 4 times and each times been on this trip. You can see turtles and stop for a swim too .. Not expensive to do ( arounds 17 to 20 euros for adult and kids are negotiable) perfect 3 to 4 hours trips. Love it !!

Rented a motor powered boat and it was just idyllic. Loved it. Didn't see any turtles but did not matter. It's just lovely.
