Agios Prokopios

Perhaps the most popular beach on the island, featured in lists of the best beaches in Greece. With a white sandy beach that stretches a length of 2 km and excellently organised, Agios Prokopios, located 5kms from Naxos' Chora, attracts thousands of visitors every summer.

The calm, crystal clear waters and fine, sand-like pebbles which don't stick to your skin, are the main characteristics of the beach. There's accommodation and food abound, as are water activities (skiing, pedalos, beach volley etc.). Most shops are situated on the eastern side of the beach, while the calmer western side houses the picturesque chapel of Agios Prokopios.
