Laganas is one of the most renowned tourist resorts in Zakynthos Island. The beautiful sandy beach is organized with sunbeds and loungers. You will also find boats that take you to Marathonisi also known as Turtle Island. This is an untouched island protected by the National Marine Park as it is a nesting place for the endangered Caretta Caretta turtle. The crystal blue water and the thin, almost white sand promise an unforgettable experience. Another island that turns into a club in the evening is Cameo Island.
There are many shops, mini markets, fast food places, traditional tavernas, bars and clubs along the main road. Zakynthos town is just 7km away if you wish to explore.
