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.

What people are saying about Laganas

Amazing day out, the views were amazing, the guide and host were really friendly. So much knowledge shared, delicious food, plenty of ice cold water en route. Wear old clothes and trainers or shoes that fully cover your feet you will get filthy (which is part of the fun!) I usually suffer in the heat but there was plenty of stop offs and shade and because of dust coverage I didn't burn which is a bonus Collection from your hotel no matter which part of Island you stay on which is a bonus if up north as you get to travel to South and see so much more :) Gina and Yannis thank you so so much, amazing day from amazing people. If there is one thing you do while visiting Zante this should be top of your list (laughed, marvelled at beauty and ate well)

HIGHLY recommend this tour! Khalifa was an awesome guide kind, informative & passionate about the topics. We saw a sea turtle on the boat tour thanks to our amazing captain, the water & landscapes were breathtaking. Olive press museum was more enjoyable than I had expected, don't forget to try some of the cosmetic products. Don't pay 5EUR to enter the island across the bridge, theres nothing to see that the tour hasn't already shown you except for a keyring with your photo on it.

This tour was excellent! The guide takes you all over the southern part of the island passing olive groves and wineries as well as stopping at many beautiful viewpoint and a place to swim in clear blue water along the cliffs! You enjoy a lovely homemade meal in the hills before heading back to the starting point!

This is a must! Gina and her husband are super friendly and take care of everything down to the last detail! Between crosses in the buggies you will pass super beautiful places. The picnic at the end tops it off, delicious traditional Greek food! More than worth money!

Absolutely brilliant day this is a must if you visit the island and the owners are fantastic too coukdnt fault it in anyway, best thing we have done by far, will be back to do it again one day
