Welcome to Marathonisi Island

Marathonisi Island

Marathonisi is a small, turtle-shaped island in Laganas Bay, completely unspoilt by human inhabitants. There are two main beaches on this island; the white sands of the larger beach are the nesting area of the endangered Caretta Caretta (Loggerhead) sea turtle, and the smaller pebble beach is home to a couple of interesting sea caves. The natural pine, olive and green oak forests on the island are another beautiful attraction. There is no development on the island, part of National Marine Park, and visitors are advised to take water and supplies for the day.
