What people are saying about Laganas Beach

Our host was absolutely lovely and so accommodating. We were picked up from our hotel on time and given cold water. The trip itself was spectacular and we were able to see a gorgeous sea turtle. We swam by the beautiful white cliffs and spotted jellyfish, crabs and various fish. The glass bottom boat was a fun extra to look through. We enjoyed the olive oil museum and took home some delicious garlic oil. 10/10 day out, I would recommend!!

Very nice. The tour guide was very chatty and kind. We saw turtles and the beautiful Keri caves. Just the island was in my opinion the only bad thing because it’s so crowded you can’t even lay down and there is a rope limiting the excess to the island which is only like 5m from the coast

Actually got to see turtles on the sea bed and one coming to the surface for air. Really enjoyable trip, chances to swim and visited the olive oil factory and taste some samples. Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable

Amazing experience! Went to the Keri caves and Marathonisi both where we could go swimming and snorkeling. After we cruised around the Laganas bay a little while and spotted a turtle!

Beautiful experience, we saw turtles and swam in crystal clear water.
