Laganas
Laganas Bay has the best resort beach on the island. It is nearly five mls long, fairly narrow and with gently shelving light tan sand. Plenty of beachside restaurants and snack bars. Motorised water sports are restricted because turtles use some parts of the bay for nesting. There are a vast number of tourist shops, minimarkets and a couple of leather and gold shops both of which are specialities of the island. During the daytime there is not much beyond the beach. Within walking distance of Sarakina mansion ruins and some superb views. There is some horse riding and boat trips to see the turtles. This area is suitable for the young and lively who want to dance the night away. Also for families who don't mind some noise from discos and bars. The centre of the resort is not for those who want a quiet or peaceful holiday. The accommodation is mainly self-catering studios in abundance and a variety of hotels, in the lower categories, as usual where life revolves around the bar.
