Agía Ánna Beach
Considered to be a southern extension to Agios Prokopios Beach, Agía Ánna Beach nonetheless holds its own Blue Flag certification. A little over six kilometres from Naxos town, it has developed from a scene of backpackers camping on its soft golden sand in the 1970s and 80s to one of the island’s best organised beaches today.
The majority of its one-kilometre length is arranged with sunbeds and umbrellas for hire, while the cove created by the construction of a simple pier-like marina at Agia Anna’s southern extreme is the preferred place to bathe in the warm, clear waters. Boats can be hired from the pier to explore these waters and the amazing vistas more closely, with a range of water sports also available.
It’s near the marina that visitors will also find the photo-worthy Shark Rock and an area covered by dunes and cedar trees. Cafes, bars, and restaurants specialising in locally-caught fish can be found along pretty much the beach’s entire length, offering wonderful views out to sea and towards Paros.
