Agios Sostis is a charming traditional Greek village located between Laganas and Keri and it is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The village is named after a 16 th Century Church dedicated to Saint Sostis. The village of Agios Sostis is flat but has the attractive backdrop of mountains in the distance. The beach here is lovely, sandy with clear waters. Opposite lies the small uninhabited island called Marathonisi, but fondly nicknamed turtle island as its shape resembles a turtle and it is also popular with the Loggerhead turtles to nest their eggs on the beautiful beaches surrounding the island. Visiting Marathonisi makes for a fun day out to enjoy the splendid beaches the small island has to offer and also the chance to glimpse the turtles, boat trips are available to the island or small boats can be hired. Watersports are not available so as to protect the turtles. Nightlife is mainly to be found at the waterfront of Agios Sostis, with excellent Greek tavernas and bars with a great range of delicious cocktails providing all that anyone would need to round off a blissful summer day. This small resort does have a handful of shops but nearby Lagana is easily accessible either by taxi or bus, for a wider range of shops and a busier nightlife. Agios Sostis is suited to the traveller in need of relaxing and unwinding in pretty rural surroundings and a great spot from which to discover the rest of Zante's beauty.
