Zakynthos: Island Day Trip with Turtles, Swimming, and Caves

1. Zakynthos: Island Day Trip with Turtles, Swimming, and Caves

t After a convenient pickup from your hotel, head to Kalamaki beach on Zante's southern shores. Enjoy the pristine beach with soft sand and warm waters, protected by National Marine Park. See where the endangered loggerhead sea turtles nest. You may spot tiny baby turtles breaking out of their shells. Next, head to Laganas beach to board the glass-bottom boat. Sail to the Keri Caves, carved by time, tides, and wind. Follow the coastline, admiring the white beaches, rock arches, forested hills, and enormous limestone cliffs that fall into the sea. Pass through the famous rock arch, Kamara.  Stop for a 20-minute swim just outside the entrance to a vast cave. Climb back on board to head to Marathonisi, known as Turtle Island, an exotic, green, and coincidentally turtle-shaped island. Enjoy an hour on the golden sandy beach where you can swim and snorkel. Head back and pass the famous Cameo island bridge. Enjoy the idyllic views of secluded beaches surrounded by steep white limestone. Enjoy a final stop at the award-winning Aristeon ecological olive oil press museum in Lithakia. Explore the history of olive oil making on the island with experts.  Enjoy free tasters of local olives and traditional bread with different flavored extra virgin olive oils (most likely lemon, orange, and garlic). Take a sample of olive oil shampoo, soap, body cream, or face cream. You can also buy these products to support local businesses.

Very interesting and complete excursion to visit places in Zante with access that would otherwise be complicated, such as the island of Marathonisi and Keri Caves. Very happy with the fact that thanks to this tour we managed to see a sea turtle, something that snorkeling in different places the previous days seemed complicated. Very happy with the tour, the sites visited and above all the attention and enthusiasm of all the guides involved, I recommend it.

This tour takes you to Keri Caves which is definitely the most beautiful part of the island. The water, the caves and remote beaches are indescribable! There is no stop for lunch but you can grab something at Turtle island which has boat bars if you need. Tour guide was super nice and the quick stop for the tasting at Olive Museum was also fun :) highly recommend it!

Awesome! We had such a good time, everything was to your liking. I would do it again if I ever come back here in Zakynthos! Recommended
