Information about Zakynthos Island
Welcome to the beautiful Island of Zakynthos! It is located on the west side of Greece, on the south of the Ionian Sea, across from the Peloponnese. Many thousands of visitors from all over the world come to visit the island as its beauties are well known. The amazing beaches are the island’s main attraction along with the Caretta Caretta turtle. Beautiful sandy beaches with clear waters in all the ranges of blue are situated throughout. The Shipwreck cove among the most photographed beaches in the world, the untouched and protected Gerakas beach, the deep cold and blue waters of the rocky Porto Limnionas and the long sandy family friendly beaches of Kalamaki and Laganas are just a few. The endangered Caretta Caretta turtle is a rare animal that chooses some of these beaches to lay its eggs. The National Marine Park is in charge of protecting it helping to keep the natural sea environment in equilibrium.
