The Banana Water Sports was originally established as a family business in 1985, on Laganas beach, Zakynthos, but eventually moved to Banana Beach in Vasilikos, when the Laganas Beach became part of the Greek National Marine Park in order to protect the nesting grounds of the endangered species of loggerhead turtles (Caretta-Caretta). The long sandy Banana Beach with its crystalline waters is regarded by many as one of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Zakynthos, and provides an ideal setting for a variety of fun and adventure-filled water sporting experiences.

The center provides equipment rental at reasonable rates for activities like parasailing, hand-gliding, water skiing, canoeing, jet skiing and much more, as well as sun loungers and parasols for those who are looking to simply unwind and soak in the sun.
