Naxos Beaches

Naxos beaches

The beaches in Naxos are different than the beaches of other islands of the Cyclades due to their characteristic length. Plaka is the longest beach of Naxos. Beaches with white sand lay the shores of west Naxos, with crystal turquoise waters and a beautiful view over the island of Paros and some islets (Glaronisia).
The most famous of all Naxos beaches is Plaka beach, while particularly popular are Agios Prokopios beach, Agia Anna beach. Mikri Vigla beach is also one of the popular beaches in Naxos but mostly among windsurfers and kitesurfers as the area can get easily very windy.
The western side of the island, where the most beautiful beaches are located is also more developed in tourism. The eastern side is secluded with wild beaches and affected by the wind.
