The stunning beaches of the picturesque Greek island of Naxos and the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea attract more and more fans of traditional beach holidays every year. One of the best and most popular beaches on the island of Naxos is the excellent sandy beach of Agios Prokopios. This beach is also included in the list of “the best beaches in Greece.”
Agios Prokopios beach is located on the western coast of the island in a bay well protected from strong northerly winds, about 5 km from the island's capital - Naxos (Chora) and in 2.5-3 km from the airport.
Agios Prokopios is a beach with soft golden sand and very small stones. The beach is about 1.5 km long. Once there was the old port of Naxos, which was actively used by pirates and then by the Turks. At the end of the beach you will find the small church of St. Prokop, after which this place actually got its name.
Today Agios Prokopios is a popular beach center of Naxos with a well-developed infrastructure. Part of the beach is beautifully organized and offers bars and cafes for refreshments and snacks, sun loungers and sun umbrellas for rent, and a variety of water sports. In the vicinity of Agios Prokopios you will find many cozy hotels, comfortable apartments and rooms for rent, as well as restaurants, taverns, shops, markets, pharmacy, laundry and much more.
You can get to the beach by public transport (regular bus service with Khora), by taxi or rented car.
