Anything turtles

Hey guys,

I've just booked a week at the skiathos princess in a couple of weeks. Both me and my partner both love turtles. Can anyone recommend any trips or activities we can do that have the possibility of turtle sights etc. Any experiences would be appreciated. Thanks.

Skiathos is not known as a turtle area you may get to sea one if you go on one of the trips (if they are running) over to the protected marine park but Dolphin sightings are quite common.

Turtles are common in the Ionion sea especially Zakinthos and Kephalonia where there are nesting beaches.

No sea turtles around but I believe there are some terrapins at Troulos. Or possibly Kolios?

I'm sure someone will be on who can tell you more.

Turtles are usually around in winter time. Terrapins on a few of the beaches - which for some reason folks give them bread ...

Thanks everyone for your replies. It's definitely worth knowing about the terrapins. I think we'll be taking a trip to troulos :)
