     Zante :: Smugglers Cove
     Zante :: Blue Caves
    Zante Zakynthos Smugglers Cove - Navagio

    Navagio, meaning Shipwreck, is Zante’s most famous sight and one that frequently appears in travel brochures all over the world- with its magnificent white cliffs and clear turquoise waters creating a truly spectacular place. Located in the north west of the island, this splendid beach is a must see for any traveller to Zante. Accessible by boat trips from Cape Skinari and St Nikolas harbour, visiting this beach makes for a memorable experience and a chance to take some special photos.

    Zakynthos Zante Blue Caves

    The blue caves are to be found at the very north of Zante, underneath Cape Skinari. The Caves were discovered in 1897 and are one of Zante’s best loved tourist spots. The caves have to be seen to be believed, showing a range of blue hues on the white rocks caused by reflections from the sea. The area is popular for snorkelling to see the wide range of marine life living there and any snorkeller will look remarkably like a Smurf- thanks to the reflections of the cave it will appear that they have blue skin!

     Zante :: Marathonisi
      Caretta - Caretta sea turtle
    Zante Zakynthos Marathonisi

    Marathonisi is a small islet located in front of Keri Lake. The island is a nesting ground for the Caretta Caretta turtles.  The island has a superb sandy beach perfect for sunbathing and swimming in the surrounding clear warm waters. Many people like to hire boat to reach Marathonisi, or alternatively there are organised boat trips available. A favourite spot for scuba divers, this island has much to offer and should not be missed.

    Zante Zakynthos Caretta Caretta

    The Caretta Caretta turtle is an endangered species and Zante is the most important breeding ground for the loggerhead turtles- which do not nest in any other European countries; only Greece. As Zante is such an important environment for the turtles, whose numbers are in decline, several measures have been introduced to help protect their environment including most significantly the establishment of National Marine Park of Zante (NMPZ).
