What's Maries like

Maries is tucked away in the northern mountains of Zakynthos island. It’s around 30km from the islands capital Zakynthos Town which is about a 40 minute drive.

The small village of Maries is said to have been visited by both Mary Magdalene and Mary of Clopas and this is where the name Maries comes from. A 15th century church is devoted to Mary Magdalene and a summertime festival is hosted in her honour.

Despite the legends swirling around the area, this town is relatively undeveloped, but there are still some hotels and a few traditional Greek tavernas, making it a lovely base for anyone wishing to escape the flurry of tourist crowds that you get in the larger resorts elsewhere on the island. Car rental is recommended as it makes it easier for you to get out and explore other areas.

If you'd like to stay in the area then have a look at the Maries page of here. Alternatively find a great package holiday through Tui here.

Maries nightlife

Maries is a small quiet village with just a small collection of tavernas, there's no nightlife or evening entertainment other than a simple meal and a few drinks whilst taking in the beautiful scenery and views.

What to do around Maries

From Maries you can easily get to Porto Vromi where Mary Magdalene’s footprint is supposedly fossilised in the cliff face. From Porto Vromi you can join a boat trip that visits Navagio Beach and the Blue Caves which is a highly recommended trip around the island.
