Laganas is situated on the
South coast of Zakynthos and is home to the largest and liveliest
It is part of a large sweeping bay of mainly flat land, with
gentle hills to the West rising eventually to the mountains
that line the West coast of the island. The most popular resort
of the island owing to the fine sandy beaches and lively nightlife
that goes on until dawn. Many properties are surrounded by small
fields, orchards and olive groves even quite close to the centre.
Laganas Bay has one of the best resort beaches of the island.
It is around 5km long, fairly narrow with gently shelving sand
into warm crystal clear sea. Water sports are restricted as
turtles use some parts of the bay for nesting. The area is well
known for its wide range of nightclubs and bars emitting a party
atmosphere all night long until the early hours. This is not
the place to visit if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing
holiday as it is most suited for the young and lively who want
to dance the night away. Can also be suitable for families who
don’t mind some noise from nightclubs and bars.
There is an extensive range of restaurants and tavernas serving
all types of international and local cuisine. From fine cuisine
to snacks and burgers it can all be found in Laganas.
When looking for accommodation it is mainly self-catering apartments
and a variety of hotels. Plenty of shops to browse including
tourist, jewellery, leather goods and supermarkets. Public Transport
runs regularly to the nearby Zakynthos Town giving you the option
to explore the capital of the island.
