This beach is one of the many we visited. It's in continuation with the other beaches in line. The ride to the beach is amazing. It passes through the towns and all. Nice ride.

It is a very nice beach with amazing water. It is a sandy beach, very long. On one side of it is a nudist beach but for the rest is more family oriented. It can be reached by bus.

Nice and long, yet not very broad beach. Only few people around in October and only few beach bars still open, giving the beach a nice and relaxed atmosphere. Clear water.

Plaka Beach is a long sandy beach extending from Aghios Nikolaos church in the west to Orkos in the east, some 3.5 kilometres. I caters for every one from family groups to the naturist .Just below Aghios Nikolaos is a small naturist beach then as you progress east families take over with umbrellas and sun lounges for a kilometre or...

Plaka beach was pretty much shut down on October 7 though it was still quite warm and there were still lots of beach goers. Most tavernas/bars were shut down for the season but there was quite a few in neighbouring agia anna still open. Nice quiet welcome to Naxos island. Very clean, some nudists, easy access on bus route.

Naxos has many and beautiful beaches but I think that Plaka beach is the best one. The sea is tourquise blue. The sand is great. Just lie down and enjoy the sea and the sun.

Crystal clear water and soft sand. This beach is fantastic. Does have large flat slabs of rock as you enter the water but they are not slippery so easy to walk on. There are beach bars dotted along the coast, but there is also plenty of space to lay out towels.

Off the beaten path but worth a trip. Huge beach with some waves. Limited amount of beachfront places so very quiet and isolated.

This is a long stretch of beach running along a sheltered area just a bus ride from Naxos village. Definitely worth a visit for a swim however the beachside restaurants are fairly naff!

Stayed in hotel on beach . Lovely clean sandy beach. Lots of tavernas with sun beds which were free if you bought drinks or food from the relevant taverna . Many tavernas had waiter service on beach too. Sea water lovely and clear .
