Plaka is a very popular beach on Naxos. it stretches some 15 min drive south of Naxos town, occupying an entire bay.
The beach is pretty long, so you can find calm free parts with no crowds, as well bars and hotels offering their sunbeds, food, pool,...etc

We spent most of a day here exploring the different parts of the beach. The northern end was less developed with lots of room to settle down with no one within a hundred meters.

The southern and middle sections have more Tavernas and places to rent lounges and umbrellas.

And there is an organized naturist section if that interests you.

Everywhere there is beautiful soft sand and clear blue water.

Mother and daughter visit to the beach!

Whilst exploring the island, we wanted a lovely Sandy beach to spend the day snd found Plaka delivered this.

Down a rather windy track lane, then walk from a little car park, we enjoyed lying on the beach and going for a bracing swim to cool down.

There were no facilities or refreshments available, just sea snd sand - perfect.

We were almost alone, a few other people dotted about, and occasionally someone came walking along from other parts of the beach.

Just what we needed. Some vitamin D.

It is no wonder it is rated amongst the most beautiful beaches in Greece! We visited Plaka beach twice during our stay in Naxos and truly enjoyed soaking up the sun and the beauty of the place! Definitely a "must see" when you visit Naxos.

Plaka is a perfect beach. We visited it in mid September the temperature were perfect. There is a good availability of bed and umbrella, usually the set is 10 euros. You can get there by bus, which leaves from the port, and it is only 1,8 euros. The buses can be not very respectful of the timetable but they run about every 20 minutes, they are huge, so you can get a seat. The only point maybe about the water: the front beach got huge stones, and may not been indicated for small kids.

This beach was our go-to beach for our 2 week stay in Naxos in August. We didn’t experience any of the big crowds that other reviews mention but maybe because we were down at the furthest southern end of the beach. Here it is very calm and lots of space, beautiful water and a great vibe. Highly recommend for its great sand too - 8 year old constantly building sand castles (along with me as his lackey!)

Super crowded beach with little options offered if you arrive at the peak hour. In high summer, it’s an absolute inferno.

Will say, not the most relaxing day at the beach. the sand is only about 25 meters wide to the beach clubs pack people in and there is only about 5 meters between beds and water. Lots of families, lots of noise. Not what I wanted. Great for families though.

Crystal clear water, quiet and peacefull. Local restaurants nearby with very friendly staff. Found a small place offering ice coffee for 2 euro with a bottle of water.
