Description of Naxos 2 Days To Undiscovered Naxos Island Hopping Package

Naxos is a mountainous island with impressive rock formations and is the nuptial island of the god Dionysus. It is an attractive place not only for those seeking sun, bars and bikinis, but also for those who want to experience Greek culture and all its impressive features. Naxos is truly blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches in all of Greece.

Long beaches of golden sand and the most amazing color of blue sea you will ever see, many of them are not what you would call “undiscovered”. The beach of Agios Georgios is the main tourist area if you like windsurfing, water sports, people watching and if you have children as the sea is very shallow. For windsurfers, the far end of the bay of Saint George is a center for the sport with several rental shops. Because of the northeast and north winds, Naxos is known as one of the best places in Greece for windsurfing.

Unforgettable Experiences: Explore the beaches of Naxos

Naxos Beach

The beaches of Agios Prokopios and Agia Anna are a little quieter but also very popular and there are rows of umbrellas and beach chairs that you can rent. These beaches though crowded in places are long enough so you can always find somewhere semi-private. These two beaches are considered by many to be the most beautiful in Greece with clear turquoise water that makes every picture you take look like a postcard or an advertisement for a Caribbean holiday.

Further on the beach at Plaka is considered by others to be the best beach on the island with about 5 kilometers of golden sand.

Further down the coast is the beach of Kastraki, rated the cleanest in the Aegean and over 8 kilometers long. Beyond that is Pyrgaki a long sandy beach and Agiassos. The town of Apollonos on the far northern tip of the island has a large sandy cove and some restaurants and hotels and the feel of being on another island altogether.

Many of Naxos beaches have been given the Blue Flag award by the EU.
