Beaches on Naxos
From Agios Georgios to Agiassos
On this page you will find information on the most beautiful and well known beaches on Naxos. Most of them are located on the west coast of the island, starting right at Naxos town (Chora) In contrast to other Cyclades islands beaches, the west coast of beaches of Naxos are very long and relatively wide.
Agios GeorgiosAgios Georgios beach is the first beach to be found after Naxos town on the way to the south. To be frank, this sandy beach is actually in Naxos town and you can reach it on foot. It is approximately 2 km long and you can have a view of Paros Island in the horizon. The beach is organized offering umbrellas, sunbeds, water sports, taverns, bars and mini markets. Its shallow waters make it ideal for children and it is very popular during the high season. In the end Naxos town and Agios Georgios are just one village. You cannot really identify where Naxos town ends, and Agios Georgios begins.
Agios ProkopiosOne of the most beautiful beaches on Naxos, Agios Prokopios is around one km long and well protected from the north winds. On the south of the beach you can find tavernas and cafés, while the north part is less crowded. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available for rent. At Agios Prokopios you can also rent a car or a motorbike (Scooter).
Agia AnnaAgia Anna beach approximately 6 km from the city of Naxos (Chora), is right after Agios Prokopios beach and only within a short walking distance. Actually, this rather famous beach has 3 small bays, the first on the way from Agios Prokopios beach, the middle one with most restaurants and bars overlooking the sandy beach and the south one on the way to Plaka beach. Also at Agia Anna beach you can rent a car or a motorbike (Scooter).
PlakaPlaka beach is located between Agia Anna and Orkos. With a length of 4 km it is one of the longest beaches on Naxos, with fine, golden sand and green-blue waters. You should either bring with you or rent an umbrella, available at a few parts of the beach. Directly on the road, mostly at the north and middle part of the beach you will find tavernas and mini markets. We always recommend a rental car or motorbike having an accommodation at Plaka beach. Of course there are also several bus stops on the long road leading down.
