Information about Agios Georgios beach (Saint George)

Agios Georgios Naxos (or Saint Georges): This sandy beach is actually the town's beach. It is the closest to the capital and for that, it is one of the most popular and crowded beach of the island. It is very long, extending for many kilometres and is full organized, proposing sunbeds and umbrellas for rent as well as various water sports facilities. The first thing you notice about the beach is its size. It rolls on and on. If you are used to beaches on other Cycladic islands then it will come as a shock.

The other difference is that this beach actually has waves, and they get bigger the further you go from the town. The sand here is soft and the water clear. Across the sea, you get a lovely view of Paros. If you walk around the headline on the southern end of the beach you will find a considerable amount of windsurfers. It is one of the most famous spots of the island for windsurfing. Lessons are conducted here because the water is quite shallow and the wind is good. Several cafes and restaurants are lining the beach and many hotels, rooms for rent and studios are available in the surrounding area.

    Walking distance from Chora
    Beautiful sandy beach, very good organized, walking distance from the center of Chora, very clean and not deep water, you can enjoy lovely sunset from this beach. Several beach bars, but the music that come from the bars is not loud but quiet and pleasant. You can have romantic dinner on table in the sand in the restaurants at the beginning of the beach. Great beach for all generations.
