“Big sandy beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Lovely beach to bring children. Long beach, good for swimming. Restaurants nearby. The bus from Naxos town stops on the beach. Clean water. The sand is very fine, and tend to stick everywhere. But good for children

“The best beach in Naxos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Long sandy beach with stunning sea colors. Never crowded, not even in August. It may be windy but less than Agios Prokopios and the water is always flat.

“One of Naxos' most beautiful beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Plaka is a large beach with golden sand. It can be very windy there, but that's nice in the hot sun. The beach is far away from crowded. You can rent sunbeds with from tavernas by the beach. Some places the employees of the tavernas walk around the beach, and can bring you drinks and food. The water has some strong flow directed to the south so you will be pulled away from your sunbed, annoying to swim back all the time. But the beach is beautiful.

“Far from noise, by far the best beach to relax..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Great place to relax, far from the crowdy and loud beach-bars of Naxos. There are some spots with deckchairs as well, but if you keep going south there is nothing. Just the golden sand and the most clean and clear water i have ever seen and swim in!!! Perfect place to build sandcastles!!
If you visit once, you will come back again for sure! Oh, and don't forget to take water with you.
By far the best beach, hope it stays unspoiled like that!
