We took the bus from the port to Plaka. We got off at the last stop. We didn't love the end of the beach, so walked back along the water to Maragas (just a part of Plaka) and set up camp. Water is amazing. Next time, we rent a car and go further south to Hawaii beach too.

Variety of restaurants are close, sun beds & umbrellas available for 5 -8 euro. There is beach service for food and drinks and a small town to walk through.

After hopping around a couple of Greek Islands we settled in Naxos for our final week. We ended up spending all of our days in Plaka as the beach is beautiful and so large that you can always find several completely deserted areas all to yourself and enjoy its turquoise, warm waters (unlike overcrowded beaches such as Agios Prokopios and...

For me this is the best beach in Naxos. It is quite big with one part having some nudists lying around though I am not sure this is quite legal here as I saw some locals fighting with a nudist trying to walk near some sunbeds. Nevertheless I suggest this beach if you like diving in the water with open... More

We loved Plaka beach, with it's tavernas and charm. The snorkling was very good for Greece. We had a lovely day there and it was worth the visit.

From Agia Anna you can walk for several kilometers along the sandy beach, including Plaka Beach. Around Agia Anna you find the families with the children. Behind the chapel there is a small nude beach. And from there onwards there is a mix of textiles and nude people. You can sunbathe, swim or just walk along the beach for hours.... More

Naxos was my absolute favourite place in Greece (we went to Athens, Naxos, Santorini then Crete). This beach was beautiful sand and turquoise water. There are great amenities with tons of restaurants just across the road from the beach. The restaurants will deliver your lunch (and Litres of cheap delicious wine) down to your chairs if you rent a chair... More

Huge long sandy beach. Great for swimming and sunbathing. Lots of parasols and sun-loungers next to tavernas and bars if that's your thing. Otherwise choose a quiet spot, strip off and maximise the tan. When that Meltemi wind blows it can be like a sandblaster, unless you are lucky or cunning enough to have bagged one of the few bushy...

This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever had the privilege to visit. The northern end, near Maragas, has more sunbeds and the southern end towards Mikri Vigla, is mostly just a long stretch of sand. A wonderful combination of sand dunes and cedars hide the beach from the road. Plaka beach is my happy place!
