Plaka Beach, Naxos

4.6
#2 of 29 in Outdoors in Naxos
Mostly unspoiled by tourist facilities, Plaka Beach is a quiet and calm. A small section of beach is reserved for lounge chairs and umbrellas, but for the most part the sandy beach is left undisturbed. Plaka, together with Agia Anna, Mikri Vigla, and Agios Prokopios beaches, line the west coast of Naxos Island. Just behind the sand dunes bordering the beach, you'll find a few restaurants and hotels that cater to tourists and visitors.

  • I already knew this long stretch of coastline, with wide Beach, dunes, sea beautiful colors, some simple bathing establishments and the possibility of not finding crowds even in August. This year because of the fierce unfortunately was not very usable because it is totally exposed. However the Council, hoping not to be at the mercy of wind and gusts of sand.

  • Plaka Beach it is really worth visiting. Even in August you will find and there is no crowding under umbrellas that have prices halved compared to Italian beaches. The sea has all shades of blue and the sand is white and golden. Locals on the street are inviting tavernas open all day, very neat and elegant. Shame about the strong winds of recent days of vacation. If it blows from the North at the beach there are going to the gusts of sand that whip. Better to go further north in bays that are more sheltered.

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.
