Zante Resorts - Laganas
Laganas is located on the south coast of Zante, set around a wide bay. It is the largest resort on the island and is most definitely the liveliest! It has excellent facilities including a superb beach, with some water sports. A Laganas holiday offers guests fantastic measures of sun, sand and sea by day and an amazing party atmosphere by night. Laganas boasts a long fine sandy beach which slopes gently into the clearest of blue seas providing ideal conditions for children and less confident swimmers. Water sports are restricted here because certain areas of the beach attract the protected loggerhead turtles that come to lay their eggs.

Zante's rich historical past provides endless opportunities to see architecture, visit museums, and ancient archeology. Our customers have recommended an island tour or car hire to see the amazing scenery that Zante has to offer. A Zante holiday would be incomplete without a trip to Smuggler's cove. It is the most photographed cove in the whole of Greece with its tall cliffs, golden sands and wrecked ship half-buried in the sand. Although it can be viewed from above, the best place to see it is from out at sea. It is also worth taking a trip inland to the picturesque villages with their whitewashed houses and fertile vineyards where the authentic spirit of Greece is found.
