So much choice and even in the high season we found places easily where we were pretty much alone, save for another beachgoer 40m to the right or left.

This was a strange and shallow beach. After "5 km", you still have water below your knees. My boyfriend and I laughed like kids. and yes, it's a beach for kids. Overall, clean, of course, but complete Naxos is clean and great.

The beach is not as commercial as others. So plenty of space and the snorkeling is not bad for Greece. Be careful though, there are loads of sea urchins on the rocks so where swim shoes for protection.

Great sandy beach , big with place for many people and ideal if y want to avoid too many tourists. Careful if it’s too windy though, sand will be not too pleasant

Amazing secluded beach. Beautiful clear waters. Safe for families. You need a car to get here but it is well worth it. Don’t miss out on this when in Náxos.

Driving to see the cape at Pyrgati, we walked close to the cliff edges and then followed a path to come across an abandoned building with superb murals painted by the Wild Art collective. An unexpected moment of wonder.

Beautiful beach with nice sand. A few shops and restaurants line the beach. There are some covered canopies for changing. I would love to come back here in the summer.

Naxos has many beautiful beaches, each with its own personality. Kastraki is remote, long and most of it is covered in dunes. You can be by yourself. You can be nude if you want. Portions of the water have rocks, but much of it is...More
