Laganas Beach, Laganas

(2/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Laganas Beach a part of your Laganas vacation plans using our Laganas tour planner.

  • In Laganas, we spent a few days. The beach is sandy, a darker golden sand. More clean, bright, sometimes occur, but you just go the extra mile and build grass no longer is there the water clean. Povoľný entry into the water, you need to go through a couple dozen feet into deeper water. A paradise for children. When the banks you will find beautiful shells, the beach is long, suitable for walking. The beach is lined with tavernas, restaurants and bars offering sunbeds-often for free, or just if you are there you drink and you have a table for the entire day. In this area are the nests of Caretta-caretta-. We were lucky and the morning walk at Sunrise we were witnessing the hatching of small turtles. With the help of environmentalists, we watched as the turtles to the sea is currently looking for a way to blend in, born irreversibly with water and is lost in the sea. An unforgettable experience.

  • If you are looking for a quiet beach, do not go there. The music is loud, the people on the beach are very loud, and if you have kids, go to Kalamaki instead. The sand is like concrete and there are s...  more »
  • Trash, crowded, nondescript Beach area, I did not like. The water is warm. A gently sloping sandy beach inside and outside. A lot of loud young tourists.
