Live It Up in Laganas


Arguably the most vibrant resort on the island, Laganas is a paradise if you’re into dancing till dawn with other like-minded revellers. If you’re after a secluded and tranquil break, perhaps veer away from this fun-loving resort, otherwise enjoy its bars and clubs including the iconic Rescue club.

Go Shopping Zante Town


Zante Town has something for everyone. Its pretty Venetian-style buildings and cobbled streets are perfect for a balmy afternoon stroll.

Wet & Wild Watersports


To the south of the island lies Nicholas Bay, a beautiful sandy beach popular with tourists where you’ll find everything from banana boats and ringo rides to paragliding and canoeing. Want something more immersive? Head to the island’s ‘Lobster Claw’ peninsula located in the eastern coast for scuba diving.

Go Turtle Spotting


Head to Laganas Bay and explore the islet of Marathonisi, which is uniquely shaped like a turtle. It’s a great place to watch the Greek loggerhead turtles nesting. Please note that entry is regulated by the National Marine Park to aid conservation of the sea turtles.
