Naxos Aliko beach (Hawaii & Kedros)

General information

Aliko Naxos: Aliko is a wonderful peninsula with some very beautiful beaches, located on the south western side of Naxos, Cyclades.
Located only 18 km south of Naxos Town and just after the beaches of Kastraki and Glyfada, Aliko is a lovely place to relax away from the crowded resorts of the island.
This special region consists of some beaches and many small bays with soft white sand and crystal water. The most famous beach is called Hawaii. Some other beaches in the area are Agios Georgios, Mikrolimano, and the nudism-friendly beach of Kedros.

Kedros beach is located in proximity to Hawaii, on the northernmost part of the Aliko peninsula. It is named after the cedar forest situated in the area behind the shore (kedros is the Greek word for cedar). It is the largest beach on the Aliko coastline but not so much preferred by tourists, probably due to its secluded location and the fact that you need to walk in the sand for some time to reach it. But the same reason is why it is preferred by naturists.
The beach and seabed are sandy, while the sea has an aquamarine color and crystal clear waters.
The beach doesn’t boast any amenities, so remember to bring your beach gear. However, a food truck lies around the area; you can purchase water, beverages, and something to eat from there. Note that because of the fact that it is remote and off the beaten track, Kedros is a favorite swimming destination for naturists.
You can approach Kedros on foot from Hawaii since the beaches are adjoining.

Above the beaches of Aliko, there is a unique cedar forest with marvelous sand dunes.
This forest has been declared a protected natural area and creates an exotic landscape.

Aliko can be reached by private means or by bus. A bus to Aliko departs from the port of Naxos 6 times a day.

    Great beach
    Alyko is less than 30 mins from the city by car.
    We visited it several times, because it is simply enchanting.
    This is an unbelievable beach, with stunning rock formation and clear, shiny and colourful water. You'll be enchanted and I'm sure you'll come back several times.
    Going down to beach is a little tricky, so mind your shoes and equipment you're taking with you.
    Also, expect many nudists here.
    And a lot of fish... and some of them are naughty and bite just a little. :)
    Naughty fish is my only minus.

    Top beach
    This is definitely one of the top beaches of Naxos. This is a calm beach with nothing else except the beach and the sea. The only thing (and good thing) about it is that it is located far away from town and very few buses reach it. On the way back from Aliko, you can stop at a great restaurant called "Axiotisa" or turn on the left to Mikri Vigla to eat at "Kontos restaurant".
