Narta Lagoon (Albanian: Laguna e Nartës, Greek: Λίμνη Άρτας) is a lagoon in the west of Albania. It is the second largest lagoon in Albania referring to size and is located a few kilometers north of the city of Vlorë. The lagoon is part of the Narta-Vjosa Protected Landscape and is connected by two short canals to the Adriatic Sea.

Narta Lagoon is named after the village of Nartë, which is found on the lagoon's southern shores.

In the lagoon are two islands. The larger one is named Zvërnec Island. A wooden footbridge connects Nartë to the island, where a 13th-century monastery is located.
