7. Zakynthos: Sunset Cruise to Myzithres with Wine
Cameo Island, Agios Sostis, Laganas After picking you up from your accommodation we will head to the small port of Agios Sostis which is located at Laganas bay from where our unique adventure will begin. We will stop for 15 minutes to admire the view of Cameo Island and its rope wooden bridge. Cameo is a privately owned little paradise and during the summer months, is connected to the land by this bridge and we will have the chance to cross and take some amazing photos! Our boat is waiting for us to start the sunset cruise along the South West Coast of Zakynthos. Marathonisi Island As soon as we are all on board, captain Panagiotis will set sail to Marathonisi, an exotic, green, naturally turtle-shaped island. Along the way, we will try to spot the unique and beautiful creatures, the Caretta-Caretta turtles, which choose Zakynthos sandy beaches every summer to lay their eggs. We will stay at this exotic golden beach swimming, snorkeling, or soaking in the sun. We must be very careful because this is a breeding area for Loggerhead turtles and we must stay only within the first 5 meters of the beach to avoid any harm to the nests of the turtles. Keri Caves Leaving Marathonisi island behind us and sailing along the coastline, you can admire the breathtaking Keri Caves carved by time, tide, and wind and also the white single beaches, the amazing rock arches, and views of the huge white cliffs. Our local captain Panagiotis is very experienced not only at getting into the small-sized caves with the Glass-Bottom boat but also passing right through the famous Keri rock arch (Kamara) as well. We will have 30 minutes to swim outside a magnificent large cave and admire the scenery around us with awe. Make sure you have with you snorkeling equipment to take a look under the crystal-clear waters and admire the sea life, (if you don't have snorkeling equipment ask the captain to borrow you). Myzithres (Keri Sea rocks) As we reach Myzithres Beach and the rocks we realize that is the most imposing landscape of Zakynthos after Navagio beach. These two towering white rocks, the small and large Myzithra are located below the lighthouse of Keri and the contrast between the crystal-clear blue-green waters and the white color of the rocks and the sand of the beach is absolutely amazing. And as the sun goes down with these marvelous colors of the sky the moment is truly enchanting. Enjoy it with a free glass of wine or soft drink.
