On our recent 15-day island hopping tour of the Cyclades, we were spoilt for good beaches: Plaka on Naxos, and then Chrissi Atki on Paros (where we went the day before here) set a high standard. But Santa Maria beach more than matched those despite being quite small. What made the biggest impression here was the sea-water: crystal clear and... More

One of the best beaches on the island with golden sand and clear water which is amazing despite the crowds occupying every inch of it. It is pity that so many umbrellas are allowed and there is no free space around.

Sandy beach close to Naousa with beautiful crystal water. It's recommended for young people mostly and families. It gets very busy between 12 and 3.

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.

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
