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.

We took the bus to Plaka Beach while in Naxos. It is the beach at the end of the bus route. We passed lots of great looking beaches with plenty of tavernas to get food and drinks. Unfortunately when we arrived, we realized there was really nothing here but some umbrellas and loungers. We chose to walk north to the... More

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.

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
