    Best beach on the island!
    Okay, so we didn't go to any other beach, but this was really nice! We got 2 loungers with a lock box at the Golden Beach cafe for 15euros and had wonderful service and food there. The sand at this beach is clean and nice - not soft, but good still good sand.

    Most commercial of the beaches closest to Naxos Chora
    It depends on what you're looking for. Of the beaches we visited this was the most commercial - mainly sun loungers and not a lot vacant spaces if you just want to put a towel on the sand. Loungers were 25 euros plus, for two and an umbrella; maybe more in peak months when beach would be very crowded. Beach front restaurants had a preponderance of italian- based menus but we found a good restaurant towards the end of the line, that served good Greek food. The beach is mainly sandy with fairly steep shelving into the water although quite safe. There is a lifeguard on duty. There are shops and restaurants away from the sea front. Regular bus service to/from Naxos Chora but this is the last stop on the return journey to Chora so the bus may be very full or bypass this stop altogether!

    Nice sheltered stretch of beach
    It was a pretty windy day, so our hotel suggested we NOT go to Plaka Beach, which was original plan. They suggested this beach and it was perfect for what we wanted to do. We got here before 10 am and essentially had an unlimited selection of loungers. We chose a spot that was 10 Euros for two beds and umbrella and was able to get the front row. What was also good here was that you could also just put a blanket out in front of the loungers which a lot of the locals were doing. It’s a public beach so be prepared for the people selling massages and jewelry but this was not a problem. We had lunch at one of the many restaurants and we took a long walk down the road past another nice beach called Agia Anna Beach which looked very nice also.

    So beautiful!
    A beautiful beach with plenty of chairs and umbrellas to rent. The water is clear with gentle waves and lovely sand. I wish we could have stayed for many more days to keep going to this beach!

    Quick bus ride from Chora
    ent in June 2024, one day was baking hot, beautiful blue water and soft deep sand, lots of pretty sun beds to rent and plenty of places to eat. The same week on a different day is was quite breezy, the seas had an icy chill to it. You do not have t eat in the restaurants to rent the beds but they charge you more if you don't buy food. Avoid the place called Virtu with all the crochet/rope umbrellas, unless you want to pay 30 euros for a set. There are far fairer prices on the strip, 15-20 euros. We got a nice comfortable front row bed for 20 euros.

    Smooth sand and crystal clear water
    I'm not sure why the Trip Advisor picture for this beautiful sandy beach shows rocks, but the beach is long, sandy, and filled with umbrellas. It has the clearest, cleanest feeling water I've ever swum in. The smooth sandy bottom extends into the water. The water is pretty calm and we bought pool noodles in town which were fun to float on. The chair umbrella sets are run by each of the restaurants across the street from the beach. You can book ahead if you are dead set on a particular place. We showed up and found chairs at Kahlua. The food/drink service was excellent, because they place the order electronically and runners bring your food/drink order promptly. I also got a nice 25 euro massage from one on the Asian women offering massages. In the middle of the beach, several hundred yards from the main access end, there's a large gap in the chairs before they start up again and extend towards the other end of the beach, so you need to bring your own chair or towel. But you don't need a bathing suit. There's ample social distancing and I highly recommend giving it a try, even for a few minutes. I found it very freeing, but be prepared for clothed beachgoers walking past and trying not to look every minute or so. There's a few other gaps where you can throw down a towel for free.

Clear water with a beautiful view. There is a lot of restairants and bars with variety of cousines nearby. The beach has a lot of reasonably priced umbrellas, and there is often an option to order straight to your place. The sand is typical Greek small stones, but more on the softer side so it doesn't hurt your feet to walk on it barefoot. Definitely coming back to this place :)

3 years on and numerous beautiful Greek islands after, Agios Prokopios still remains the number one beach for me.
It is massive so it doesn't get overcrowded, the water is still this amazingly light blue colour and it still feels so soft. The sand is still like brown sugar, soft to walk but it doesn't fly when it gets windy. The view towards Paros is still pretty, even the view towards the back is nice!
I don't tend to go back to the same island unless it is exceptional but I had to go back to Naxos simply to go to Agios Prokopios beach.

This used to be the best beach in Naxos, but now a family of 4 cannot spend a day without also spending at least 50 euros. 95% of the surface of the beach is covered by sunbeds that cost 15-25 euros the set of 2 (in July, no idea how that escalates in August), and of course you have waiters pestering you every 20-30 minutes to get an order they seem to think is obligatory, even if you have already paid for the sunbeds. Meanwhile, the sunbeds are so close, there is hardly any space to move your own if let's say you want to get or avoid the sun. The only space left for people who do not want to pay to be crammed like this is at the right end of the beach where you get more space between different sets of sunbeds. It was OK in the beginning of July, but I bet it will be difficult to find a place to leave your stuff in the busiest months.
This is my second time visiting Naxos; the first was 15 years ago and I was sad to see that the people there have since adopted the "grab the tourist money" mentality that had ruined so many Greek islands before Naxos.

The water is crystal clear, it’s deep enough and super cold on a hot Greek summers day . The beach is large for Greek islands and has many sun beds/ umbrella options with social distancing, prices vary from place to place but the average is 10 euro per set for 2 people . I loved the location and restaurants nearby . Bus stop right there and easy access to town .

It would be a 3.5 to be more fair but definitely is not even a 4. The beach is beautiful, the water is as clear as it gets and there is the best quality of sand (the thick one that doesn't stick and is really easy to get off of you). However, (ok maybe it's just me being weird), weather is really windy most of the time, which for me is problem, the water is really very cold and the worst thing is that most of the beach is occupied by sun beds that are charged in quite expensive prices without including any beverages. So free spots on the beach are challenging to find, but truth is that it is a quite large beach and until mid July someone can easily get a spot. I wouldn't know if this stands for the high season as well, but I wouldn't be optimistic about it. If you don't mind the above and you choose to try it I am wishing best of luck to everyone!

Wonderful beach with azure waters. Sand is grainy and clean
It is a long, scenic beach with different types of loungers and umbrellas, so you can pick what you like.

The stretch of beach is lined up with a really nice selection of restaurants for food and drinks at your service. Typical set of two loungers and an umbrella is 10-20 Euro for the day

Nice family setting closer to the bus stop, other types of setting further down, something for everyone

Stunning Beach, so clean, so pretty, so safe and everything you need there, as beautiful as the Caribbean seriously and I have also been there!! Secondly I really needed a massage due to achy back/ neck.. I was a bit dubious how it would be with someone on the beach doing it.. it was Fantastic!! I would recommend Chen, possibly spelt Cheun, pronounced Tung!! He was so good, considerate, expert with my chosen pressure and I feel lot better for it. Also much cheaper than the hotels, next year again see you Chen!!!! Afacristo!!! ❤️
