HOTELS BY LOCATIONS

Before you start looking for a hotel, it is useful to be fairly certain of the location in which you would like to stay in Naxos.
The first step is to get an idea of what different places in Naxos look like.
Naxos is one of the biggest Cycladic islands, which means it offers diverse sceneries.
Would you like to stay in a central spot, full of shops, restaurants and other facilities or a small seaside village?
Some accommodation options are located in popular beaches or other crowded spots, while others may have a remote location that ensures privacy and tranquility.

View the Map

Naxos’ most touristically developed area is the western coast: the most popular places among those looking for accommodation are: Chora (main town), Stelida, Agios Georgios, Agios Prokopios, Agia Anna, Plaka, Orkos and Mikri Vigla.
Other beachfront destinations that are more quiet and offer significantly less facilities are: Kastraki, Pyrgaki, Agiassos and Glyfada.
In addition, a few accommodation options are available in small traditional villages that are located away from the coast but are really peaceful and will introduce you to the rural way of life, such as Potamia, Sangri, Halki and a few more.
For a remote but seafront location with hardly any tourism infrastructures in situ, you may choose Apollonas or Moutsouna.

Plaka Beach

1. Plaka beach

With its light blue waters and silky white sand, Plaka is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Cyclades.
The seemingly endless seashore is 4 km long and although there are many hotels and other facilities at a very short distance from the beach, the natural landscape remains beautifully unspoilt.
A small part of the beach is organized, providing sun loungers and umbrellas. In this area, you will also come across some of the best restaurants and bars on the island. If you choose to stay in Plaka, it is almost certain that you will have amazing sea views and the beach will only be a few meters away.
﹢ Positives: It is considered as one of the top accommodation choices for travellers seeking an amazing beach on their doorstep, beautiful hotels with sea views and a more relaxing atmosphere.
﹣ Negatives: Transportation is required for visiting other locations on the island.

Agios Prokopios Beach

2. Agios Prokopios beach

Agios Prokopios is one of the most popular beaches on Naxos, located only 5 km away from Chora.
It is exceptionally well-developed in terms of touristic facilities, offering numerous restaurants, beach bars, bakeries and mini markets.
The beach itself has both organized and unorganized sections and even though it can get quite overcrowded, you will certainly find a few nice spots to enjoy the turquoise sea waters. The vivid nightlife makes Agios Prokopios popular among young travelers, while a bus line connects this area to Chora and other beaches.
Accommodation options in Agios Prokopios come with a truly convenient location.

﹢ Positives: Agios Prokopios is hands down one of the must-see seashores on the island. Booking your hotel here means that you will have quick and easy access to one of the most important parts of your holidays in Naxos: swimming in pristine turquoise waters and laying on a white sandy beach. Being a well-developed touristic area, you are sure to find anything you need: supermarkets, bakeries, fine restaurants, cafes and bars.

Chora/Town

3. Chora

Chora is the capital Town of Naxos and the best-developed place on the entire island. It is full of shops, restaurants and bars, while the main port is one step away from it.
Some neighborhoods may be somewhat noisy but others are more quiet, and its picturesque alleys are lovely for evening strolls. Accommodation in Chora ensures that you will be very close to a lot of the island’s most significant landmarks, including the Castle, Portara and the Archaeological Museum.
This location is highly recommended for those arriving at the port with no intention of renting a car, since at a short walking distance you will find anything you may need. There are regular bus lines and taxis that will take you to see other parts of the island. If you want to be where the action is, you know that there is no better option than Chora.

﹢ Positives: It is a pivotal location, very vivid with lots of restaurants, shops and cafes. There are many budget accommodation options here. Also, it is ideal for short stays in Naxos and a perfect choice, if you are not renting a car since the central bus station with frequent schedules to most of the island’s touristic parts and the taxi station, are located at the port and are reachable within a short walking distance. Also in the surrounding area of Chora, visitors can find luxury hotels.
﹣ Negatives: There is no direct access to a gratifying beach. You will either need to take a bus/taxi or your car to reach one. The nearest beach to Chora is Agios Georgios which can be reachable on foot. Many of the Hotels at Chora, especially the low-budget ones, can be somewhat outdated and not with significant views. Also since it is central, it is prone to become noisy at times. Last but not least, if you have a car you will be obligated to park it in one of the main parking areas since cars are prohibited inside the town.

Agios Georgios beach

4. Agios Georgios beach

The nearest beach to Chora is Agios Georgios. It is very well-developed, full of bars, restaurants and all sorts of seafront facilities that attract numerous visitors.
The sandy beach is very long and has shallow waters, which makes it a safe place for families with small children.
You will find organized parts where you can enjoy the comfort of sun umbrellas and loungers, without having to bring your own stuff and unorganized spots as well. Inexpensive accommodation is also possible in this area. Keep in mind that because of its very convenient location, Agios Georgios Beach is likely to get overcrowded during the peak summer season.

﹢ Positives: Booking a hotel in Agios Georgios, is a decent choice. It is very close to Chora, has a relatively nice beach (although not ranking among the top ones on the island, it is definitely good enough to spend sufficient time for relaxation on it). There are some inexpensive accommodation options and it is very popular with families travelling with children. The natural attributes that facilitate this type of tourism are surely the sandy seashore and the surprisingly shallow waters, allowing for safe and carefree kids’ playtime.
﹣ Negatives: As with every well-known location, it will inevitably become crowded, especially during the peak summer season- but do not fret! You can always catch a bus or rent a car in order to easily explore Naxos’s numerous beaches at your own pace. Lastly, as regards the hotels, their decor and design are rather minimal and simplistic, allowing you to focus on the natural beauties of the island rather than staying indoors.

Accommodation here is highly recommended for those who are looking for a place very close to the best beach for kitesurfing and windsurfing but the calm area may also be a good choice for families. Even if you’re not into sea sports, nearby you will find Sahara beach, which is significantly less crowded and ideal for swimming peacefully, away from the sea sport hustle and bustle at the windy beach of Mikri Vigla.

﹢ Positives: If you are travelling for Kitesurfing/windsurfing this is your ideal location since it is the closest to the beach. Also, apart from the windsurfing spot of Mikri Vigla, Sahara beach is nearby. Its natural protection from the wind and waves makes it ideal for swimming.

It is an unspoiled area, ideal for families or anyone who is looking for quiet and peaceful accommodation, away from the island’s more crowded parts.
Besides a few shops in the area of Mikri Vigla, you will not find many facilities in this area and the lack of tourism infrastructures allows the visitors to combine seafront accommodation with serenity. In addition to the beautiful landscape, the good summer winds and its proximity to Mikri Vigla beach make Orkos a popular place among kitesurfers and windsurfers.

The mountainous landscape is truly beautiful and one of a kind in Naxos, much different from all the other popular locations and seafront resorts on the island.
In addition to a few hiking paths that will allow you to explore the magnificent rural landscape and local vegetation, you will also see several landmarks in this area, including stone-built ruins and old churches.
