A favorite of the hippies in the 1960’s and 1970’s, Plaka beach on Naxos island remains one of the most attractive and popular on Naxos.
An endless stretch of golden sand, with crystal-clear waters, it is a continuation of Agia Anna beach, with sand dunes adorned with sea lilies after August as a characteristic feature.
Plaka is an organized beach with umbrellas and sun beds but also natural shade from junipers near the water.
It is lined with cafes, beach bars and tavernas catering for all tastes.
