Naxos Kastraki beach

Information about Kastraki beach

Kastraki Naxos: The beach of Kastraki is located just after Sahara and is a beautiful golden sandy beach with crystalline waters. A few accommodations can be found behind the beach. Kastraki is long and winding with lots of different bays. The area is quite unspoiled and surprisingly few people make their way down this beach. There is a slight wind but it doesn't deter from a visit. There are interesting rock formations just out into the clear water.

    Just ok
    Kastraki is pretty strange beach.
    Good thing is that it is long and you can find your calm spot.
    The "strange" bad thing is that it is too shallow and too windy. If you go later during day, expect some freezing.

    One of the most famous restaurants of Naxos
    Axiotisa is definitely one of the most famous restaurants of Naxos. The atmosphere is pleasant, the food is nice and the people there very kind.
    You have to book in advance in August if you want to eat at a proper time.

    Nice and quiet restaurant
    This is a restaurant I like much. It is simple but offers great food. It is located next to famous "Axiotisa" in Kastraki's main road. A great place to eat on your way back from Aliko.
