Plaka Naxos: Plaka is like a continuation of the beach of Agia Anna and is one of the most beautiful beaches of the island but also listed among the most beautiful beaches in Greece. It is a calm and endless sandy beach with, in some parts, big flat stones and amazing crystal clear waters.

Just the no1 beach of Naxos
The longest sandy beach of the Cyclades. Around 10 km I think. Amazing white sand, carribean like sea colours. Watersports available there as well as many restaurants. You can also practice nudism on the south part of the beach.

Exotic turquoise water
Among the most beautiful beaches I have been, not only in Naxos but everywhere in my life. Exotic water with turquoise color, soft sand, very long beach. So long that it has places for everyone: for families, for couples, for the young who want to play beach volley and beach tennis, for nudists. Really delicious taverns by the beach and a couple of bars with fun music. Easy to go from every part of Naxos by bus. If you can get a room there, even better.

One of the best beaches on Naxos
Plaka was a beach we visited several times, because it simply has that "something". Naxos is probably the best Greek island for many, many things and each of its points of interest has something that distinguishes it. Plaka is no different. You may not know what that is, but it is. The water colour is unbelievable (same goes for complete Naxos), and it is also unbelievably clear (same goes for complete Naxos). Very pleasant for swimming- sand, texture, depth... Nice beach, cute, not that visited, several trees to hide inside... You simply love it even without any reason. The only negative thing is that it is very close to the road, so you can expect some dust. One thing that surprised me on Naxos (same goes for Plaka) - every single beach is nudist-friendly. 70% of people on all beaches were nudist, so have that in mind if you have problem with this. We went there in September, and I don't know the situation during July and August.
