Grotta beach on Naxos island acquired its name from the Italian word grotta, meaning cave. This beach is located at the main town Chora’s northern seaside. A small bay covered with pebbles and some sand, it offers a unique view of Portara to the left, and Grotta’s new settlement to the right, perched on the hill. The Grotta location is where the Mycenaean city of Naxos, one of the Aegean region’s most significant, stood in ancient times. Some ancient remains can still be seen in the sea area.
