Why is Laganas so popular?
Stretching from Kalamaki in the east to Agios Sostis in the west, Laganas Beach is one of Zante’s loveliest sandy beaches. To avoid disturbing the nesting turtles, you won’t find water sports apart from pedalos, but there are some beach bars and restaurants that also offer beach service. In Agios Sostis there is a wooden footbridge that takes you to Cameo Island, a sought-after wedding location, so scenic it looks like a postcard!
On Zante’s southeast coast, Laganas has gone from a small fishing village to the island’s most vibrant resort. But even if its biggest selling point is its after-hours scene, that doesn’t mean it’s not also a bona fide family destination – its stellar beaches, boat trips, and resident loggerhead turtles are just some of its major draws.
The nightlife in Laganas is in the same league as Ibiza. There’s a mile-long, neon-lit avenue with more than 50 different venues, from karaoke bars to happening music venues. Some of the clubs even fly in international DJs throughout the summer.
Why you should visit Cameo Island?
You get to Cameo Island beach club by a rustic footbridge that reaches out over the ocean to the beautiful little island. The bar is right on the beach and a great spot to enjoy your day or a drink at sunset. This is a popular place to get married and you may see love-struck couples being serenaded by local musicians.
