Laganas Strip

This is where it’s at in Zante if you’re looking to party and we absolutely LOVE IT!

The Laganas Strip

Where is the main party area in Zante?

Answer - The Laganas Strip.

How to describe The Strip so you know what to expect? There’s a lot of fun to be had, but there's been some bad press over the years so let’s deal with that first!

If you’re at least a little sensible, can stay in control of yourself and not get helplessly, paralytically drunk, then you’ll have a great time in Laganas and be perfectly safe.

If you drink like an idiot you’re going to be more vulnerable to some sort of misfortune.

Staggering into the road in Zante because you can’t stand up is going to result in the same outcome as it would outside your local pub – you might get hit by a car, or in Zante it could be a quad bike or even a horse!


Drink 5 times as much vodka as your liver can handle, then you’re going to end up lying in a pool of your own vomit. Every night in Zante you will see people sitting in the gutter puking or being carried home by their mates.

When the notorious Ultimate Party kicks out at midnight the Strip is like a scene from a low budget Zombie movie with drunken casualties lurching around, eyes glazed, covered in mysterious stains and dribbling, for the locals it’s quite entertaining!


Unbelievably, a whole industry has now opened up to cater for fools who drink too much in Laganas. The medical centre’s have PR's who prowl the Strip looking for casualties.

They scrape you off the floor, take you to a room and put you on a drip, which they then bill you 150 euro for - which is ironic as the reason you ended up so drunk is you thought you were clever buying a 5 hour free bar for 5 euro! Honestly, what sort of drinks were you expecting?


Swerve any event or booze cruise offering a free bar, it's always a gimmick to cover the shortcomings of the event and the 'alcohol' you will get is vile.


If you remember you’re in a foreign country with a different culture and laws and act decently on your Zante holiday, you will enjoy the resort immensely - Laganas is one of the best nights out you will ever have.

If you misbehave with loutish, vile behaviour then just like in the UK, you might get into trouble, either with security or the local police. If you start fights and act like dick heads you can be assured Zante has seen plenty of your type before and you can expect to be dealt with.

As we point out elsewhere on this site, it’s a different ball game in Zante than it is in your hometown.

The good news is that 99.9% of people who visit Laganas are decent and well behaved, simply looking to have a laugh with their friends. A small minority cause incidents and scenes that occur in every place where there’s lots of people with alcohol involved but the chances of you getting mixed up in anything are very remote.

If you see a fight or something kicking off in Zante, don’t flock over and get involved, just walk the other way. It’s human nature to go and see what’s happening, but when the bouncers get the pepper spray out you’re going to regret it.

Mind your manners in Zante and don't be a d*** like you would anywhere and you won’t have any problems whatsoever.


Right, so that’s cleared that up. Now let’s get into just how much fun a holiday in Laganas can be. Laganas is a great night out, there’s a hedonistic atmosphere that you just can’t help but get swept up in.

Groups of friends from all over the UK (mostly) but also from Sweden, Norway, Italy, Australia and other places will be rolling in and out of the bars getting more and more smashed as they make their way down the road.

Drinks are cheap, the music is loud and there’s plenty of venues for you to enjoy. You will never have to pay much to get into a club in Laganas, the big clubs like Zero’s and Rescue are free entry, except if there is an event on.  

The party never ends in Laganas, during the week the clubs close at 4am and on the weekends at 7am!


Rescue was the first nightclub to open in Laganas and is also the biggest. This is a class venue with a huge dance floor and usually free entry so a great place to roll in with your squad and have a quick shuffle.

The venue that takes the cake has to be Cocktails and Dreams. It’s a penthouse club in the middle of the Laganas Strip with more lights than your average Las Vegas Casino. Trying to describe inside is difficult…but here goes.

Its basically complete pandemonium; a sensory overload of music and lights and everywhere people are dancing on tables, on the bars etc. The drinks are cheap, the music’s banging – this is a classic Laganas experience. . Read more about Zante Clubs here 


Peak season in Zante you can expect many of the night clubs to be throwing events. At IKON Club on Monday nights you have DJ Nathan Dawe which is very popular. IKON also have Tom Zanetti & Joel Corry every week as residents and there’s also the Foam Party at Zero’s.

Then of course there’s The Ultimate Party at Sizzle Cub which is held every Thursday night. For more ideas about events and party’s in Zante check out these event calendars so you can see what’s on when you’re on the island.
