You'll need to travel about 42 kms from the town of Naxos or 20 km from the village Filoti to arrive at the southernmost tip of the island, but your efforts will be rewarded with a swim in the clear waters of a beautiful beach, protected from the winds.

Kalantos beach is the most beautiful of the island with endless golden sands and a calm, shallow sea. It's not organised, so make sure to get supplies beforehand. There is, however, a canteen that operates during certain hours of the day, offering light meals, snacks and refreshments.
