Laguna (Lagoon) Naxos: The beach of Laguna actually took its name because its shape looks like a lagoon and because the water is very shallow, only 1 m deep. This beach is not good for swimming. And there is no proper beach.
But, the flat water, standing depth and northern meltemi winds that flow make this spot an outstanding place for windsurfing. Actually, this is a great spot for beginners and children, as well as the ideal place for learning new moves.
A reef separates the lagoon in two parts and gives nice waves for learning jumps. Training is extremely safe there and there are some windsurfing centres along the shore. Laguna is located only 5 min walk from Agios Georgios beach and 15 min walk from Naxos Town.

It is said that you get to know a country once you start experiencing the local activities. The Island of Naxos is known for its golden sand beaches and crystal clear water that allows you to practice numerous water sports. One of them that became famous over the time is windsurfing. The island provides the perfect spots to practice this sport and during all summer, “Meltemi” wind is blowing in Naxos from morning till evening.
Windsurfing is the best way to get into the island vibe and make your holiday a memorable one. If this sport is totally unknown to you, there is no reason to worry. Windsurfing lessons are suitable for beginners. The best instructors with patience and a lot of experience will teach you the theoretical part and the basics of it. After some hours of lessons, you will be able to make your first solo rides! If you already have an intermediate or advanced level, it is the best chance to learn from the best instructors some tips and tricks to improve your technique. Don`t forget that your safety is the priority so wear the proper equipment every time and keep in mind that your instructor is in the water as well, to help you when needed.

Car rental: Τhere’s the option of renting a car in Naxos with as little as 15 euros per day and pick it up directly from the airport, port or your hotel. Using a car rental allows visitors to discover Laguna beach and many other places of interest in Naxos at their own pace.
Public transfers: The central bus station of the island is located at the port of Naxos. There are several buses from Chora to locations close to Laguna during the day. Consider that time schedules might change according to the season. Check the official timetables here.
From Naxos airport to Laguna: Note that there is no bus station at the airport and the best option is to book a car or a transfer. If you still want to use the public bus, after exiting the airport buildings, follow the road to the left, the bus station (Naxos Camp) is located 500 meters away. From Naxos Camp, visitors can take the bus route Plaka - Agia Anna > Chora (approximately every 30 minutes during summer) to Naxos central station. From there, visitors should take a bus to reach Laguna.
From Naxos port to Laguna: The bus station is located at the port of Naxos. From there, visitors who have arrived by ferry to Naxos should take a bus to reach Laguna.
Tip: Since buses don’t always stop in every scheduled stop of their itinerary, our advice to visitors is to inform the driver about their final destination, so that he makes a stop there.
