Laganas, Zakynthos Island

Situated at a distance of 9 kilometers southern to the town of Zakynthos, within an area famous for its sandy beach and the marvelous sea view, Laganas is a famous cosmopolitan tourist resort of the island, very popular especially in summer. The village counts some 550 permanent residents.

A lot of hotels of all categories, studios and rooms to let are available for accommodation within the settlement and in the area around. Most of them are open from May to October and offer full facilities to their clients. There are also two campings with full facilities, one at Laganas and the other at Lithakia.

There are several interesting places and monuments worth seeing both in the settlement and in the area around. The monument in honor of Andre Vesale, the famous anatomist of the 16 th century who died in Zante is found at the beach of the village. At Sarakina, some 2 kilometers northern to Laganas, you will see the Lountzis Mansion, a building with very interesting architectural features.

At a short distance from Laganas, following a bad road to the West, you will arrive at Aghios Sostis, a nice tourist resort with a small safe port for fishing boats and small boats and the homonymous islet opposite it; just beside Aghios Sostis you will find another scenic beach, that of Porto Koukla.

You may also visit the inland village of Pantocratoras, some 4 kilometers at the Northwest, to see the homonymous church.

If you are interested in old churches don’t miss to pass from Lithakia, some 4 kilometers northwestern to Laganas, to visit the churches of Panaghia Faneromeni and Aghios Ioannis (St. John). The village offers a marvelous view of the Laganas bay and it is an ideal place to take photos.

If you feel like going farer, you may drive up to the village of Agalas, some 11 kilometers western to Laganas, where you may visit the cave of Damianos.

Food and drink are abundant and good; the visitor has a wide range of taverns, snack bars and bars to choose from, both within the settlement and the beach, as at the nearby beaches. You will taste fresh fish and seafood, along with local dishes and Greek and International cooking. Laganas has several clubs and bars, haunts for young people; amusement and “hot” nightlife is one of the pros of the place.

You will enjoy swimming, sunbathing and sea sports at the long sandy beach in front of the settlement, very well organised and with full facilities, as well as at the near by beaches of Porto Koukla and Aghios Sostis, western to the settlement.

If you are at Laganas on Monday following Easter, you may take part at the procession of the icon of Holy Virgin.

For health problems, a local Medical Center is available at Pantocratoras (4 kilometers at the Northwest); in the same village there is also a Police Station.

Access from the town of Zakynthos (15,5 kilometers far away) is easy by taxi and by rented or private car and motorbikes.
