South of the tourist center of Zakynthos Laganas you will find the small picturesque port of Agios Sostis. One of the reasons to come here is because he sets out on a trip to see the turtles. In addition, the iconic island of Cameo is directly opposite the port. The private beach in Agios Sostis is up to a few hundred meters away, so you can thank the adjacent beach, which basically belongs to Laganas

You can start your tour of Agios Sostis and its surroundings north of the port. Here you can swim on a nice beach famous for its very warm water. Although it still falls under Laganas, but if you do not want to go terribly inland, you have to wade 200 meters here, so it is quite separated from this busy resort.

View of the port of Agios Sostis

Right next to the beach is the small port of Agios Sostis. The most beautiful light is here in the early evening.

The hill behind Lithakia

Across the harbor is a view of about 550 meters high hill rising above the town of Lithakia. It could certainly be a very interesting view, but according to the map, there is no road to it

Views of Laganas

From the port it is only 600 meters as the crow flies to Laganas, probably the scariest place in all of Zakynthos

Chapel in the harbor

The center of the port is a small rock and a nice chapel

Rock on the other side

The rock is also a popular place for amateur climbers who want to have a photo with the Greek flag on top

Sea romance

Classic-looking ships still have something to do with each other

Isle of Cameo

Probably the biggest attraction far and wide is the island of Cameo and the famous wooden bridge leading to it. It used to be accessible for a fee, now only closed events such as weddings, etc. are held here.
