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.

  • Beautiful blue, shallow clear waters, but very little beach. Teach it, only for a series loungers and clean air tour! Ideal for young people, but not for couples who are looking for tranquility and relative isolation!

  • The reign of chaos, if you want that you have come to the right place. Between salty and sweet food, ice cream and drinks, clubs of all kinds for sure you are having fun. The sea is usually what you find around here. The beach is frequented by hordes of teenagers sometimes a little noisy, but who was not at that age. Recommended for those who want to have fun without getting too the rules ...

  • A lot of litter, dear, cozy taverns are hospitable people. The main street of the loud, but sure if young people a few hundred yards away, in the quietness and serenity.

Where to stay in Laganas

Settling into a seafront hotel in Laganas keeps you close to the town's famous nightlife, but it also means putting up with the after-hours noise and crowds. Most visitors to Laganas come for its party atmosphere, which makes good lodgings near popular bars and clubs relatively expensive and hard to come by at peak season. You can explore more affordable rooms in guesthouses just outside the town, where you can get a quiet night's sleep and walk to less-frequented beaches.
