Away from the main resorts and larger cities, Zakynthos offers
a wealth of unexpected delights.
Get off the beaten track and discover them for yourself.
For those who like exploring by boat there are fascinating caves,
tiny unpopulated islands, impressive cliffs and deserted beaches on
the west coast.
Marathonisi, an uninhabited islet two nautical miles away from Villa
Koukla, in the bounds of the National Marine Park, is worth visiting
wide sandy beach.
Marathonisi is also the favourite place for the protected
loggerhead turtles, Caretta-caretta, to
bury their eggs in the sand.
| If you wish to explore underwater Zakynthos,
several scuba diving programs and schools allow you to experience
the thrill and taste the excitement of diving.
In the mountainous northern part of the island discover old monasteries,
churches of unique architecture, dense pine forests, traditional
villages and good tavernas with local specialties.
And after a busy day exploring, you can entertain yourself at the
nearby restaurants, café or bars.
Welcome to Zakynthos and to Villa Koukla.
