The official resident of the island ‘Marathonisi’ is the loggerhead turtle ‘caretta caretta’. The island along with the Bay of Laganas is protected by the National Marine Park of Zakynthos.It has the shape of a turtle and you can reach it either by renting a small boat from Laganas or by going on an organized trip. If you do rent your own boat you are free to explore the caves, small beaches, the rock formations which emerge from the sea, the flora which is all around you, the well-known rocks Myzithres and anything else that may come your way. Marathonisi has two beaches, the first includes a sandy beach for those wholove to sunbathe, however umbrellas are not permitted there as you may unwittingly destroy a turtle’s nest. Marathonisi is one place that you must visit, and if you are lucky enough to go when it’s not so busy or windy it is a heaven on earth!
