Simple little island with cafeteria and beautiful clear blue water to enjoy a swim. Definitely recommend including in a turtle spotting and Keri Caves viewing!

We visited here as part of an island cruise. We were lucky to see a couple of turtles but this area can get very busy in high season with cruises, motor boats and pedalos all trying to see a turtle. The island has snack bars...More

If you have the chance to stay a little bit later than the usual tour you will remain alone in this great place. We also saw a big turtle swimming peacefully around. Very funny afternoon

We had great moments in island and it is very beautiful. The only problem is people that left their trash in beach. I was very angry with it. We paid 10 euros/person to a taxi boat. We go and return when you want.

We had a gaggle with a lady on the beach and got a 4 hour trip to turtle island for €10 each which seemed reasonable as they were asking between €15-20 most places. We got to see 2 turtles surfacing about 50meters out and then...More

We went on a glass bottom boat trip, it was just amazing. We saw a male and female turtle in the marina. Then we headed over to turtle island. The beach is separated to keep visitors away from the eggs that had been hatched. It...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
2 questions! 1. If i travelled to tsilivi from my resort which is Tragaki, do they do pick ups there? or do i need to go into Zakinthos town for the pick up? 2. When arriving at Turtle Islands, do you hire a boat there or, do you sort of drive it yourself from Lagans or Zakinthos to Turtle Island? First holiday with my partner and we really want to do this so just want as much info as possible!!

I would think so, if you can get to the mainland. There are many ways to visit the island from the mainland including speed boat hire and boat tours.
