I continue my way up to Igoumenitsa following the sea road. In this post I present a couple of interesting stopover spots and a camper stop along the stretch of coast, about 80 kilometers long, between Astakos and Lefkada.
This post is a bit off topic, in the sense that Laganas is definitely not a winter destination. I found my self, in this small spot on Zakynthos island, in December and I was fascinated by the ghost town atmosphere of the place. I felt like if I was in the abandoned set of a western movie. Then, after thinking about it for a moment, I realized that it actually really was the abandoned setting of a show, put in place for tourists every year and lasting from June to October.
So, if you ever wondered how the ultra-tourist resort looks like out of season, this is a good example.
Classical destination for teenagers, mostly British, but also for many Italians, specially in August. There is who says that he had the most beautiful vacation of his life in Laganas. Clubs, music, tons of booze, sex: easy and libertine … a haven for youngsters, a hell for their parents … if they only knew 😉
