Located on the party island of Zante is Laganas, a lively resort with a spectacular after-hours scene, stunning beachfront and vibrant street life. Spend a day on sun-drenched Laganas beach and you'll share your space on the sand with a nesting of turtles. Or hop on a boat trip to Smuggler's cove, with soft sands and crystal-clear water's that are overlooked by wonderful white cliffs. Next to it is the Navagio Bay, probably the most beautiful and the most photographed beaches in the entirety of Greece – definitely worth a visit during your Laganas holidays.
The Keri Caves, on the southwestern coast in Zante, is another popular diving spot for its amazingly clear waters and sea caves. Marathonissi Island, a short boat trip away, is another great uninhabited site for watching Loggerhead sea turtles. It also has two fabulous beaches, including a pebble one good for snorkelling. Entry to the island is regulated.
Zante town, rebuilt after an earthquake in traditional Venetian style, is pretty and has a beautiful harbour. When you're there it's worth trying to visit the Aghios Dionysios church – resting place of the town’s patron saint. You could also climb the hilltop at Kampi, a small village, to watch a beautiful tangerine sunset. The buzzing neon strip is where you’ll find most of the action during your Laganas holidays. Whether you’re keen for karaoke or want to wiggle to world-class DJs, this mile-long stretch has over 50 venues to choose from. Holidays to Laganas are perfect for those that want peace during the day and a party at night.
