Agios Sostis

Spend a day at one of the most beautiful seaside towns in Zante with a visit to Agios Sostis. Close to Laganas and 15 minutes by car from Kalamaki, it’s a must-do day trip during your stay on the island.

Arriving in Agios Sostis, park your hire car or quad bike at the free car park and walk down the concrete path towards the sea where you’ll see tavernas and restaurants alongside the small, peaceful beach. Spend a few hours relaxing on the golden sands, paddling in the clear blue water and reading a book as you soak up the sun. If you prefer the shade, remember to take an umbrella.

If you’re feeling energetic, there are plenty of things to do at the beach. Rent a pedalo or canoe, or hire a boat and take a trip over to Turtle Island where you can swim in the caves and spot turtles nesting.

After a gentle swim, pack up your things and head back into the town to enjoy a Greek meal at one of the local restaurants. Kiki’s Tavern is very popular, so you’ll have to book ahead or prepare for a wait. Sitting outside beneath the canopy, watch as your food is cooked on the traditional grill. The salad bar is delicious, too.

As night falls, Agios Sostis comes to life around you as you relax in a traditional taverna and enjoy a beer or two in the company of both locals and tourists. You might even get to see some Greek dancing, or if you want to party the night away, the nightclubs of Laganas are within walking distance.
