Naxos Glyfada Beach

General information

Glyfada in Naxos is a beautiful long sandy beach located between Kastraki and Aliko. It is among the longest beaches on the island and, since most visitors prefer Aliko, it never gets crowded.
The sand dunes, the cedar forest on its southern part, as well as a pond just behind make the beach stand out.

Naxos is a windy island, so when the wind blows from the North, Glyfada is quite exposed. That is why the beach attracts windsurfers and kitesurfers, with a kitesurfing club available. Regarding swimming, the beach is ideal for that activity when there is not much wind.
The beach is a perfect option for those hankering for some privacy, too.

The best place is where Faros Hotel and Restaurant is situated. There lies a parking lot, and you can walk to the beach from there.
The area proposes some hotels and accommodations near and above the main road. There are also a couple of restaurants and taverns.
