Marathonissi is located in the south of the Zakynthos island, overlooking the bay of Laganas.
Is an exotic, green turtle-shaped island, as if he knew it would host the nests of sea turtle caretta-caretta.
On the one side that facing Laganas bay, there is a beautiful beach with white sand and behind is spreading the majesty of the Mediterranean vegetation. The back side of the island is dominated by the caves in the sea and the unique morphology of the rocks. Among the caves formed small beaches, dreamlike swimming. The golden sandy beach, lush greenery and turquoise waters create a natural painting that will be admired from the first moment.
The island is part of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos and of course it is not inhabited. The importance of the Zakynthos island for the Park is that due to the temperature that grows on the beach sea turtle nesting and thus the depth of incubation of eggs, are borned almost exclusively male turtles, while to the other beaches of the Gulf are borned females.
Marathonisi is a quiet place in the morning, until they come the trays with tourists. Then is overcrowded and the beach is full of life.
You can come to Marathonisi either with one of the organized daily tours, or rent your own boat to Marathonisi from the nearby beaches of Laganas, Lithakia and Keri Lake.
Certainly it is an experience not to be missed!!!
