Zakynthos Laganas beach
Laganas Zakynthos: The huge beach of Laganas is the most popular and cosmopolitan resorts of Zakynthos located 9 km north of the main town. The settlement lies around the natural bay which is full of sunbeds and umbrellas, toilets and canteens. Plenty of water sports facilities are offered to visitors like beach bars, snacks bars and seaside taverns overlooking the beach.
It is the most crowded spot of Zakynthos during the day and especially at night for the numerous pubs and cafes where mostly young tend to explore. The main road of Laganas is boarded by many restaurants, bars and touristy shops and, behind the road, various luxurious hotels with swimming pools and many other facilities can be found.
Laganas Beach is protected by the Greek and international legislation as a birthplace of the endangered species of sea turtle Caretta-Caretta and is part of the Greek National Marine Park. The little pine-clad islet of Agios Sostis, located opposite the beach of Laganas, can be reached by a lovely wooden bridge.
