Laganas Resort

Resorts in Zante


Getting to Laganas:

Laganas is the party capital of Zante and tends to attract holidaymakers in large groups. It's only 7 km from the Airport and takes about 10 minutes in a taxi or car. If you're in a group of 12 or more your cheapest option is to pre-book a private mini bus transfer, otherwise you might as well share taxis from outside the Airport. An 8 seater mini bus costs more than two taxis so there's no point unless you want to stay together for the journey. If you're a solo traveller then you can save some money by taking a shared shuttle bus transfer. It takes longer than a private transfer as you'll be waiting for other passengers and dropping off at more locations, but as there is no public transport at the Airport it's the cheapest option.

Laganas Summary:

The largest resort on the island, Laganas is very popular with visitors from the UK. It's the only Club 18-30 resort on Zakynthos, but the resort has a lot to offer everyone, with over 100 bars and a choice of Italian, Indian and Chinese food. Make sure you check the location of your accommodation. The resort is very spread out, with some apartments well over a mile from the beach. If you like an early night then make sure you're not above a bar or in one of the hotels on the main street in the centre of town. The beach areas either side of the town centre are the best place to stay. The lack of water sports is a problem for some, but there are free buses running down to St Nickolaos beach everyday. It is definitely not traditionally Greek, but you don't have to travel far to be in traditional greek villages.
