The near-straight line of fine sand that forms Agiasos Beach is surrounded by green hills, and edged by light blue waters on the one side. On the other, it is backed by shrubs that separate it from the road.
Also spelt Agiassos, the beach is a more secluded and tranquil place to sunbathe or swim than others on the west coast of Naxos, to the extent that you won’t find anywhere to hire a sunbed or umbrella. That said, the beach’s waters are both shallow and calm the majority of the time, as they are protected from the island’s prevailing northerly winds, making them safe for younger children to enjoy. Refreshments are also available just a few paces from the beach.
You’ll probably want to use some form of private transport rather than the irregular bus services to reach Agiasos Beach, which lies around 25 kilometres to the south of Naxos town, the last stretch on a dirt road of 3.5 kilometres.
