We visited Laganas Beach, Zante at the end of the season so we had a lot of the beach to ourselves, just how we like it. We were lucky enough to catch the 'turtle beach guardians'. These are passionate volunteers who spend six months of...More

I visited Laganas Beach on late October. The scenery was magical. The sun was still shinning so I could swim. It was not crowded at all, although generally it is the most crowded beach of the island during summer. It was a pure pleasure for...More

It's not the prettiest but it is enjoyable. There are a string of snack bars along the walkway which makes it convenient for an all day excursion.

Yes the 1 mile or so between Laganos and Kalamaki is dunes and contains turtle nests. In the other direction, At Agias Sostis there are relaxing cocktail bars restaurants and private villas.
