Naxos, the largest island in the Cyclades, has plenty of beaches, some of the finest in Greece.
Especially Kastraki, where Summerland Hotel is based, is the largest and one of the most idyllic beaches on the island. Kastraki beach is about 16.6 Klm from the town of Naxos (Chora) and is located on the southwest side of the island, between Mikri Vigla and Alikou. It is a magnificent white sandy beach that forms dunes, shady cedar trees and crystal clear waters.
The Summerland Hotel, in addition to its other services, offers its guests free transportation to and from the beach by electric car, sun loungers and umbrellas, all free of charge.
However, those who are willing to explore, based on Kastraki, deserve to explore and explore the other beaches of the island:
Close to Naxos Town is the beach of Agios Georgios , a lush shallow sandy beach, ideal for young children.
On the southwest side of Naxos, apart from Kastraki, the most popular beaches of the island are concentrated:
Agios Prokopis is the most famous beach of Naxos. It is a long beach, sheltered by the summer wind, with clean washed sand that does not dirt and blue-green waters.
Agia Anna is the natural extension of Agios Prokopios and is equally popular with him. It features fine sandy beaches and cedar trees and a picturesque little harbor for small fishing boats.
Then there is Plaka , an extended golden sand, more deserted than the former, preferred by the nudists.
A series of small successive coves between Plaka and Mikri Vigla form Orko, with clear waters, chosen by those who prefer calmness. Windsurfing lovers choose the windmill Mikri Vigla. A series of rocks separates it into two separate beaches: Virgo and Sahara . South of Kastraki lies Alyko , Pyrgaki and Agiasos , all peaceful beaches with fine sand, cedar and crystal clear waters.
Kalantos is located at the southernmost point of the island and is the most sheltered and secluded beach of Naxos.
On the east side is Moutsouna , the port of Aperanthus. It is a magnificent cove overlooking the small eastern Cyclades. Here you can also admire the famous industrial monument of the air train.
