    Just average
    This beach is just average and not really worth visiting for an adventurer or a person that likes secluded beaches. It is a plain, regular beach, one of those you'll see everywhere.
    I gave it a higher rating simply because of clear water and colour, which is amazing along Naxos.

    Lovely and clean
    The beach is on 10-15 minutes by car or by bus from the Chora. It is very good organized, extremely clean, with beautiful blue color of the sea. There is one very popular beach bar across the street where young people have fun all day. Great beach for all generations.

    Great beach bars
    Agios Prokopios is a worthy beach, the water and sand are so relaxing. The sun was pretty warm and it provided the best possible atmosphere for a beach vacation. Water of the sea also reflected the warmth of the sun. Both of us had a great time swimming in the soothing water. We spent almost half a day simply relaxing under a sun bed. The sand is not so thin and it doesn't stick to our body. We had a few excellent cocktails at the beach bar and really cheap compared to other islands, just 5 euros a beer.
