Apollonas Beach, Apollon

3.1
#14 of 18 in Beaches in Naxos
Take a vacation from your vacation at Apollonas Beach, a quiet stretch of pebbly shore with clear waters and some history. Once you're finished lazing in the sun and exploring the water, take a short walk to the ancient Kouros sculpture depicting Dionysus and dating back to the sixth century BCE. Though secluded, the beach is not at all far from civilization: accommodations, taverns, and gift shops are easily accessible nearby.

  • The beach of Apollonas has some nice colors, is located along the little village of Apollonas, about 45 km from Naxos Chora, in a beautiful Bay. Coming down the road toward the village lies before the part of the longest Beach, rocks and more exposed to the wind, then there is the smaller part, of sand and more sheltered inside the village. Both are frequented mostly by Greeks, aren't bad, with a sea of beautiful colors ... it is important to bring an umbrella, both in fact are no equipment and umbrellas. The longer and less sheltered has a sea more moved especially with meltemi ... visit in late June, so with a few people (Greeks), perhaps at other times will be busier.

  • Although very little is never very busy even in the most critical hours. Also has restrooms, showers and changing rooms. The sea is clean and beautiful.

  • Three beautiful natural bays of fine sand first the other two with stone separated by rocks from one another and all together make the beach in distant and quiet Apollo! The sea bottom is sand almost everywhere ... Usually catches debris and games for those who love the endless waves, but if you achieve serenity sensation is magical! Like a quiet huge Lake adjoining the sea.. the landscape will carry you away!

Where to stay in Naxos

As with most island destinations, rooms in Naxos tend to cost more the closer you get to the sea. Beach hotels and seaside apartments come at a steep price, but they offer spacious rooms and modern amenities just minutes from the island's finest beaches. Stay in Naxos Town for quick access to the best shopping and dining options, or choose one of the island's smaller settlements if you prefer a quieter base. Village inns provide simply furnished rooms and no frills, but they also charge less than the resort hotels.
