saw a new thing online for zante this year , a high powered racing boat with jet engines. having some of that please ! the mrs was a bit apprehensive about it , but a few beers and a few tequila shots beforehand on the beach bars watching the planes land over the bay and she was right up for it hahaaa
it operates out from the far end of laganas bay and has strict speed limits in place as it is a turtle conservation area. however once out to see past turtle island the captain lets rip ! handbrake turns, 360 spins, hard banking, power braking , inside caves, visiting turtle island beach, zipping in the cave wall outcrops at high speed … what a blast ! the boat holds around 20 passengers and you book on the main road or via their facebook page . the scenery is spectacular along the cliff faces . must do … 20 euro and worth every ‘cent’ .
heres the full video of the trip which last about 1.5 hours .
after here we jumped into the beach bars for the late afternoon sun. beach was really skinny and packed with loungers, not my idea of a beach at all but the 18-30 gang love it here with a great fun vibe to the place for the afternoon .

we walked around the shops and bars early evening , then went for a curry to make a change to greek twice a day ! taj mahal seemed to get good reviews and we enjoyed it too.
