Weather & Wind conditions

The wind on the island is steady and gets stronger in the early evening hours, making these hours the best time for windsurfing in Naxos. The conditions are mostly "bump & jump" Depending on the wind direction, you can enjoy some nice waves at Agios Georgios beach, near the town.
If you are looking for freestyle conditions, Laguna and Sahara beaches are ideal places.

Naxos is ideal for windsurfing due to its excellent windy weather. More specifically, the annual Etesian wind, also known as Meltemi, blows nearly every day during the summer months at approximately 15+ knots and creates the perfect conditions for windsurfing.
Meltemi usually lasts a few days at a time, and is one of the most reliable winds in the Mediterranean area, thanks to the venturi effect created between Paros and Naxos, which increases the wind’s flowing rate significantly, especially during the afternoon hours.
