Day 8: Kampi - Marathonisi

Ionian Islands in two weeks


At the southernmost tip of Zakynthos, in the Bay of Laganas, lies the tiny little island of Marathonisi, also known as Turtle Island. For millions of years, the ancient caretta-caretta sea turtle has laid its eggs on this island. It’s worth stopping by Marathonisi just to have a look at these unique creatures. And don’t miss the chance to take a dip in the bay’s pristine waters . The island’s territory has been declared a conservation area so as not to disturb the turtles. Everything is immaculately clean here; you can visit, but you can’t even use umbrellas on the beach so as not to accidentally harm any turtle nests.
