Easy to reach,by bus from town, and... More

As there are no noptices, perhaps the following would help both those who want to enjoy naturist & those who want to avoid it. The reviewer on 6 September 2014 obviously saw an incident similar to the one in which I was involved, although she saw "locals" fighting with a naturist & only one local fought with me on about...

Nice big long beach with cafes and restaurants plus hotels along the front. I have heard that in June and July it is extremly busy here , but now in November it is very quiet and most of the businesses are closed down for the winter. There is a bit of weed in teh water but I have also heard... More

Nice combination of sunbeds/umbrellas to rent, with a store across the street where you could purchase cold beer. Easy to find - just take the bus to the end of the line! Some rocks in the water, which made footing a little slippery, but a beautiful beach. Very relaxing.

If you are looking for soft sand and a gentle slope into a clear sea, then definitely consider spending some time on this beach. Options for eating and accommodation across the road. Just the perfect beach to laze in the sun and seemed less windy than either Agia Anna or Prokopios which are an easy walk up the coast. Quiet... More

An undated bus timetable is given out free in the Naxos bus office. This displays only the leaving time of buses from the Chora and the leaving times from the place at the far end of each of 22 routes. So the traveller is left ignorant of 1) the duration of the journey 2) the route the bus travels over... More

Paradise! Calm, crystal clear sea. Clean, sandy bay. Walk down and away from Máragas camping for fewer beach-goers. Love it, love it, love it.

While this beach pales in comparison to the white sandy beaches in Mexico and the Caribbean, it was much better than the rocky beach of Ornos in Mykonos. Because we were there in off-peak season, we got away without having to pay for the umbrellas. Other reviewers commented on the nudists but luckily we were spared from that as well... More

Naxos has the best beaches. Agia Anna and Plaka are the greatest. Truly the reviews you read are for real.
