  1. Lap Pool in Naxos

    Hi Dave!

    We are hoping to travel to Naxos in July. I have a teenager that will need to do some swim training while we are there. Are you aware of any beach clubs or pools at hotels that would be large enough for lap swimming that would allow us to use their pool? I have a place booked but it doesn’t have a pool. Thanks!!

      There are not many big pools in Naxos (or any of the Cycladic islands). The biggest pools on Naxos are at Galaxy, Medusa, Finikas, and Belogna Ikons. Belogna Ikons is probably the biggest, but not 100% on that.
