Taking a Holiday at Marathonisi Island, Zakynthos, Greece

Marathonisi Island, often referred to as Turtle Island, lies off the coast of Zakynthos in Greece. This idyllic spot is a protected nesting area for loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta), making it an exceptional choice for a beach holiday that combines relaxation with nature conservation. The island's untouched beauty offers visitors a unique blend of serenity and scenic landscapes, making it an excellent choice for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of more tourist-heavy destinations.

Beach Type

The beaches on Marathonisi Island vary slightly from one area to another but generally feature fine, soft sand that is pleasant underfoot. The color can be described as a light golden hue, providing a warm and inviting environment. Near the edges of the beach and further out into the water, you might find areas with pebbles or rock formations. These rocky areas are especially interesting for snorkeling and diving enthusiasts as they create habitats for various marine life and offer more to explore underwater than a purely sandy seabed.

Beach Activities

  • Snorkeling: With its clear waters and rocky areas rich in marine life, snorkeling is one of the most popular activities on Marathonisi Island. Visitors often have encounters with colorful fish and other sea creatures.
  • Swimming: The calm and pristine waters make swimming a delightful experience.
  • Boat Tours: Since Marathonisi is an island, taking a boat tour around its perimeter or even back towards Zakynthos can offer breathtaking views and chances to discover secluded spots.
  • Sea Turtle Spotting: As a known nesting ground for sea turtles, respectful observation of these magnificent creatures (especially during nesting season) can be an unforgettable experience.

Accommodations

Since Marathonisi Island is uninhabited and protected, there are no accommodations directly on the island itself to preserve its natural state. However, visitors can find plenty of lodging options back on the main island of Zakynthos.

Areas to Stay In

  • Laganas: This nearby resort area on Zakynthos offers a range of accommodations from budget-friendly hotels to luxurious resorts. It's popular due to its vibrant nightlife and proximity to Marathonisi.
  • Keri Village: For those seeking tranquility closer to nature, Keri Village provides a more laid-back atmosphere while still offering convenient access to boat tours heading towards Marathonisi.

Beach Amenities

Due to its status as a protected area for wildlife conservation, amenities on Marathonisi are minimal or non-existent in order to minimize human impact on the natural environment. Visitors should plan accordingly by bringing essentials like water, snacks, sun protection, and any beach gear needed for their day trip. It's also important to take all rubbish back with them when they leave to keep the island clean and safe for wildlife.
