Naxos Beaches


Naxos Island has some of the very best beaches in Greece.

Saint George is the beach of  Naxos Town (Hora).  It is located in the so named bay and it stretches almost one kilometre to the south.

Agios Prokopios is a fine sand beach located south the headland of Stelida peninsula.

Agia Anna, the next cove south is a beautiful resort with small port for the fishing boats and the yachts.

South of Agia Anna is Plaka beach, one of the best on the island, an almost five kilometre stretch of fine sand and almost uninhabited in the southern part of it.

Further south are Mikri Vigla and Kastraki beaches. Further still, Pyrgaki, is the last stop of the coastal bus route. In Pyrgaki there are three coves. The last one has the better beach.
