Marathias Beach
The beach of Marathias is really unique - very remote, surrounded by lush green vegitation, and often without many visitors due to its remote location on the South West Coast of Zakynthos.

This is a great place for total relaxation, especially if you feel the need to get away from it all. You can rent a kayak on the beach and explore the area around Marathias. The beach at Marathias is very close to the popular Caretta Caretta nesting beach on Marathonisi Island, so when kayaking around here make sure you look out for any turtles!

The region above the beach at Marathias has one or two great tavernas if you fancy a traditional Greek meal or snack during your day in the South West region.

The furthest beach of the South West Coast, close to the coastal resort of Keri, and about 22 kilometres from Zakynthos town, is the beautiful pebble beach or Marathias. This is another of our favourite beaches during the busier summer months as it is rarely crowded and you always leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.


Just beyond the charming village of Limni Keri, along a rather bumpy road, you will arrive at the Marathias coastline. There are a number of places to swim at Marathias - you can stop and jump from the rocks into the crystal sea, or you can walk down a steep path to the main beach where there are a few sun beds and kanoes for rent. The isolated and unspoilt beach at Marathias is ideal for sunbathing and snorkelling.

There is very little tourist development at Marathias and even during the busiest month of August, it is rarely crowded here. There are no large hotels in the area and no beach bars or clubs around the beach. On the beach itself there are just a few sunbeds and umbrellas for hire, but most of the beach is empty and completely natural.
