Laganas


Do you like to swim at beaches with world, Beach bars , water sports and various activities to happily spend your time? If yes, then on Zakynthos you have many such choices and we will show you the top 5 ... those who prefer a lot and I recommend it highly.

Laganas


When here in Zakynthos talk about cosmopolitan place for young people, Beachbars , fun all day and night life then the first site that comes to mind is the Laganas . The beach could not be different. Beach umbrellas and sun beds, warm, sandy and shallow waters!

The Laganas connected to Kalamaki and together create a 9km long beach. Only Beachbars that open from noon and stay until late at night. Many times these bars organize and party on the sand, while there are also bars that only open at night. Young people from all countries prefer this beach for swimming, while most often spend their entire day there, starting with coffee and snacks and continue with drinks and loud music.

Select Laganas for your stay, including hotels and apartments on or near the beach, to you every day there! Next to Laganas, lies the region of AgiouSosti , if you want to sleep more soundly and have fun intensely just 2km. And here there are bars on the beach and boats start from here to see up close the turtle Caretta-Caretta. Look for the sea and is almost certain to see it. Dating, entertainment, dancing and bathroom are combined here in Laganas , ideal place for all who wish intensity and fun during their vacation.

Kalamaki

Kalamaki beach, although it is the natural Laganas , vary in intensity and fun, but retains its cosmopolitan character. Golden sand, warm, shallow waters ideal for young children, a few umbrellas and sun beds and many nests with eggs of turtles Caretta caretta . The beach is protected by the National Marine Park, once lay their eggs there are turtles and ends with sunset. Until then, however, is always full and mostly preferred by families with young children. I will never forget, how my dad taught me to swim in these waters, and large jars with colorful shells summertime from Kalamaki and if I was lucky and had a hole in the shell, to turn it into bracelets and necklaces summer.

It is certain that if you have small children here will be absolutely safe, you will build castles and turtles in the sand and will certainly find friends to play. Do not forget that it is always full of people of different nationalities since beyond us, to prefer the love and many foreign tourists. Stay in Kalamaki to go up there walking or select Laganas , the Argassi and the town of Zakynthos , so you can easily visit!

Alykes - Alykanas
    Two beaches that look and are adjacent to one another, covering all ages. Starting on Alykes area named after the pans from which they removed oldest salt and will even see today, you first encounter a road that leads to the beach of Alykes. It is full of sand, shallow, warm and sandy waters ideal for kids, umbrellas and sunbeds. It has a few Beach bars with coffee, drinks and snacks all day, while the security of the region and the sea, make it ideal for young children.
    Walking through the sea or if you want to get back to transport your vehicle and drive to the nearby beach, swim and Alikes. Beach with thick golden sand, beach umbrellas and deckchairs, several bars and snack bar, allowing you to spend all day at the beach. Start early in the morning with coffee and breakfast, continue with a cold dish for lunch and spend even evening with a drink by the sea, without leaving the swimsuit and your summer mood! Young children also enjoy this beach. My own little friends when they ask you to go for a swim almost always choose Alykes and everything we make castles and walls in the sand. A beach filled with people, we select and we mainly on Sundays, for a bath in the world from around the world!

    If you want to see both beaches and spend beautiful days and nights there, stay in Alykes , Zakynthos or choose an alternative site in the highlands of the island, surrounded by nature, the Agia Marina (7 km from Alykes) or Kalithea , a green village 4 km from Alykes and Alykanas , if you like to live in nature, but you are very close to the cosmopolitan beaches ... discover them!

    Agios Nikolaos
      The most cosmopolitan beach, preferring mostly young people, groups and couples, is Agios Nikolaos, in the area of Vassilikos , in Zakynthos , which is named after the church of St. Nicholas will certainly see where there are several weddings in the summer, with romantic seafrontEntertainment and dancing with loud music, bar coffee, snack and drink ,, water sports and facilities, Beach volley , are the elements that make it so popular with young people.


      A beach full of thick golden sand, sandy waters, shallow and warm and the Bay of Vassilikos on your feet. If you stay at the Royal in Zakynthos , you can enjoy one or more days in Agios Nikolaos, or visit the neighboring beaches, having fun with your friends or your partner if you're brave, try some of the water sports . But even if you choose  Argassi  for your stay, 10 km you will find Agios Nikolaos, you can experience up close one special day in a beach full of umbrellas and sunbeds and really crowded on a daily basis!
