In the south part of the island, 9km away from Zakynthos town you will come across the busy, popular Laganas resort. The sandy beach there, the longest on the island, spreads along 9km. You will soon find out that this beach has the most amenities on the island where one can find umbrellas, chaise-longues, cafes and taverns and this is why it is chosen by many tourists.
The Caretta-Caretta turtles have chosen Laganas beach to lay their eggs during the summer. This is why you will be asked to leave after sunset, while water sports and speed boats are not allowed in the area.
