Is this your first time on Naxos and you want to know the best spots to relax by the seaside or have a swim? Here is a list of top beaches we’ve carefully selected for you!
Located at the center of the Aegean Sea, Naxos is the largest island of the Cyclades. Due to its size, it offers a great variety of landscapes for the traveler to explore, such as typical Cycladic sceneries with golden shorelines and white houses, castles, and fortresses of the past, endless olive groves or even snowy mountains!
Naxos, except for its vast history though, it is known as an idyllic destination and for its family-friendly atmosphere. From long-stretching sandy beaches to rocky secluded coves, Naxos offers numerous options for every type of traveler. Plan ahead and visit the ones that suit you best!
Some 9km away from the Chora of Naxos, Plaka is one of the most popular beaches of the island of Naxos. Stretching for more than 4km, this calm sandy beach with its sand dunes and its crystal clear turquoise waters is an ideal solution for an easy-access, family-friendly excursion. Due to its length, Plaka is available for nudists as well, especially on its southern part. Even though parts of the beach are organized with water sports facilities, umbrellas and sunbeds, you can always find a quiet spot for you to lay your beach towel and enjoy the scenery. The best way to end your experience there is to try the local delicacies in one of the traditional restaurants nearby! Plaka is accessible by car and especially during summer, there are frequent bus routes for you to get there.
