Saint George Beach

Town: Saint George (Agios Georgios), is the only beach in the town, has shallow waters and has been nominated by The Guardian as the best family beach in Europe. It has many restaurants and cafeterias and can be very busy during July and August. 

Agios Prokopios Beach

Organized, 6 km from Naxos town, 1500 meters long. We admit that this is one of our favorites for the refreshing, rejuvenating waters and the rich fat sand. Nice restaurants and beach bars, snorkeling possibilities on the northern end where the rocks are. In the middle of it expect to see nudists in the low season.

A paradise beach that unfortunately very busy around July & August. The only beach on the list that is not children-friendly because of the cliff downhill.

Naxos is a beach culture island and the best beaches are located in the southwest part of the island because they are protected from the north winds and the waters are always calm. Also, they are located close to the town and to reach these beaches the route is most of the time along the sea since one is next to the other.

Southeast and north part beaches are nice with crystal clear waters, the only disadvantage is that this part of the island is windier so these beaches are to be preferred only in the rare case when there are south winds in the island, only then, these waters are calm. They can be combined of course with the visit to the villages since most of the time you will need to pass through the inland to reach them.

On semi-organized beaches, there are areas with umbrellas or small taverns and there are areas without. On unorganized beaches, it is advised to have water and an umbrella with you. All of them provide snorkeling options in certain areas.

Most of the southwest part beaches are easily accessible by bus. The southeast and north part beaches require a vehicle. Click here for the bus schedule. All buses for all destinations start from the port.

We have revealed to you which beaches we prefer more from the list, however, our preference is only objective. Just keep in mind that the beaches of Naxos are not only sea and sand but many more that you will have to explore and eventually be inspired of!
