The beach is long, sandy and one of the most popular beaches on the island of Zakynthos. It is a fantastic beach and family friendly.
In the centre it is organised with sunbeds and the sea is shallow out to around 100 metres so small children can be safe.
During the months of July and August, the centre of the beach can get crowded but is quieter at each end. Laganas sits in the middle of a large natural bay with Visilkos peninsula lying to the east.
Noisy water sports are banned at Laganas due to the nesting turtles but snorkelling and scuba diving are allowed. You may also be able to rent a pedalo but be careful not to disturb these beautiful creatures as they are a protected species.
Nearby attractions include horse riding with both experienced riders and beginners all welcome. There are turtle spotting trips and the town has a fascinating history war museum.
Close to Laganas Beach there is a wide choice of accommodation with luxury hotels and budget studios all available.
If you are staying somewhere else on the island, a trip to Laganas is a great idea for a day out. With the shallow warm waters, many attractions and the usual warm Greek welcome, you may decide to stay here next time you visit Zakynthos.
Things to do near to Laganas include the History War Museum, boat rentals and turtle spotting trips.
Laganas is located in the south of the island and is just 7.8 kilometres from the airport and 8.9 kilometres from the capital of Zakynthos Town.
