Laganas is situated on the south coast of Zante, 5 kilometres from the airport and is the largest resort on the island.
Known for it’s lively atmosphere, Laganas is very popular with young people, who are attracted to the many bars and clubs which line the main strip of this resort.
The lively nightlife here attracts clubbers who are able to party until dawn! There is also a vast selection of restaurants catering for all tastes.
The resort is set within the bay of Laganas which stretches for nine kilometres and is the breeding ground for the endangered Loggerhead turtles. Water sports are very limited in this resort, to protect the nesting turtles, however it is possible to take trips to other nearby resorts to partake in motorised water sports.
There are three islands in the bay, Marathonisi (Turtle Island), Ayios Sostis or Cameo Island, where a weekly white party takes place and Pelouzo, which is a rock formation at the northern end of the bay. Many boat trips are available to spot and swim with the turtles.
There are many shops within the resort selling holiday souvenirs, jewellery and leather goods. There are also scores of supermarkets for all your holiday essentials.
Accommodation is spread out over a large area.
The small neighbouring resort of Aghios Sostis is a short walk along the beach from Laganas. It is opposite the Marathonisi (Turtle) island. There is a child friendly beach here set amongst rocky coves. Aghios Sostis is ideal for those looking for a quiet and laid back holiday.
