For most people it is considered the most touristy and rowdy part of the island. However, even if wild nightlife is not your cup of tea, Laganas is worth a visit to swim at the longest beach on the island (9km long). In Laganas bay, one of the largest in the country (20km), you will find the National Sea Park of Zakynthos, as well as two small islands, Pelouzos in the east and Marathonisi in the west.

The settlement by the sea with the same name is 9 km away from the capital and got its name from the lagines (clay pots used to carry water) made in the area. Nowadays, it offers countless options for accommodation and eating out as well as for partying until the small hours.
