Aliko Beach (Alyko)
Offering up one of Naxos’ most naturalistic settings is Aliko Beach, backed by a protected forest of cedar and other native trees. Facing south rather than west like most of the beaches in the area, the white sands of Aliko Beach are interspersed with small occasional pebbles. While there are significant areas of submerged rock off the beach, they lie on either side of a clear zone which slopes gently into shallow water and provides plenty of space between family groups on the quiet, relatively large stretch of Naxos sand.
It’s direction and the fact it is set back in a small bay all but ensures Aliko’s protection from the northerly winds that can make the Aegean Sea choppy. Situated roughly 18 kilometres south of Naxos town along surfaced coastal roads, the virgin feel of Aliko Beach is completed by the absence of sunbeds and umbrellas for hire.
