Laganas Beach, Laganas

Beach · Nature / Park
An important nesting ground for sea turtles, Laganas Beach stretches along the southeastern coastline of the island of Zakynthos. Despite being part of a protected marine park--established to protect the endangered loggerhead sea turtles--the beach remains one of the island's major tourist attractions. The wider waterfront area contains more than 100 bars and nightclubs, while the beach itself features several snack bars and traditional taverns, located just steps from the sea. This is the most crowded spot on Zakynthos all through the day and well into the wee hours of the night, so be sure to stake out your piece of warm sand as early as you can. Use our Laganas trip planner to arrange your visit to Laganas Beach and other attractions in Laganas.

  • Laganas Beach is a good place for a beach in Zante! It is clear and quiet! I was there on 27th of August 2014 and the pics are from then.  more »

  • all the other beaches on the island of zakynthos are better. The good part of this beach is that the turtles are also living close bye, if you lucky you can spot them.  more »
  • Lovely beach and very safe swimming. We visited in early Sep 2020, so it was still a bit quiet post lockdown. I imagine in full season that this wouldn’t be a beach for anyone looking for a quiet day in the ☀️. Plenty of places to eat and most have a variety of meals.
  • A typical tourist town. We were there at the end of the season and it felt like a ghost town. That was fine for us - we were not looking for crowds in Corona times
  • Short in width, but long beach. A lot going on, restaurants, terraces and so on. Good for a swim, but there are more traditional beaches around. Also has a few diving schools and clubs in the area. Also not too far from a small island you can visit via a wooden bridge.
  • 5/5, highly recommend, nice Beach, long but narrow but its not a problem, sunbeds are free for the whole day as long as you order something from the restaurant, either food or drink. Very warm sea, clear and simply beautiful. It is even possible to spot a turtle! One minor issue is that all restaurants are close to each other and the music played can be heard from 3/4 different restaurants.
  • Great views and loads of local amenities. Water is shallow for several meters so great for kids. A little stony at the shore. Boat trips, rentals and gift shops everywhere.
