Lagonisi beach is a little gem in Sithonia with calm waters for swimming and a great view. The island Diaporos, about a kilometer off shore, protects this wonderful beach from winds and waves. There are a few small family run apartment complexes here. Lagonisi used to be a quieter beach, but a beach bar was built and now in the high season and weekends there can be crowds.
The beach organization consists of sun beds and umbrellas for a cover charge, but this amount can be used to purchase drinks. There are no restaurants here, but a few kilometers away is Ormos Panagias and there you can find everything from restaurants to mini markets and even take one of the popular Mount Athos cruises.
The sand is fine and continues into the shallow and calm water. The water has a beautiful light shade of blue. All in all this is a good family destination.
What’s great about Lagonisi Beach
Ideal for families with children. Good place to swim or canoe. Walk to the little island off the beach!
And what’s not…
No restaurants. Sea urchins in the water. Lots of children.
South of Ormos Panagias you reach Latoura beach and turn left. Follow the road a few hundred meters and there will be a sign directing you to Lagonisi beach to the right.
