Although the entrance (parking lot) might make you want to turn around, but the beach itself is really nice and pretty. You can rent snorkeling equipment and book water sports, as well as buy drinks. If you are staying in Naousa, would definitely recommend this beach.

This beach is disgusting. It is like standing in a giant ash tray. There are cigarette butts and other rubbish everywhere you look. The chairs are of poor quality and, well, there's just not much more to say than to stay away. Gross. Disgusting. Nasty.

We could have been in the Caribbean - beautiful clear water with near white sand - and the music in the beach bar was good but that was about it. The staff were miserable, food selection bad and availability of that food even worse... The umbrellas were small so if you are not a sun worshipper (or have a small... More

Nice chill out music, great beach with crystal but cold waters!!!! The prices are ok but the service is awful!! The sun beds cost 3,5 euro but you can enjoy the sun, the beach and a fresh juice in the bar tables with no extra charge... People is cool and over 25(!!!) I enjoyed it....

We got to this beach at 9am and we were literally one of two families on the beach. It was very quiet until about 11 and then the crowds started coming. We stayed all day and it was fine; however what we are going to do next time is go to the beach early but leave after lunch to go... More

Had a lovely few hours there-nice view and spent some time relaxing in the bar there drinking cold beer and listening to the good music. Worth the drive

The moment we set foot on Santa Maria beach,we immediately forgot the bus trip from Parikia via Naoussa (with about half an hour of waiting in between). Santa Maria offers 2-3 well hidden little bays to choose from. The water is crystal clear and the sand golden and light. A set of two sunchairs and umbrella cost €10 and there... More
