Plaka beach is 7 km long and is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. It is a thin sand beach with big flat stones in some parts, and crystal clear waters. There are some facilities with umbrellas and sunbeds and there are also several trees for natural shade. The sea deepens gradually, so it’s suitable for the kids. It is also ideal for snorkeling, due to the rock formations. See if you are lucky enough to find a “Naxos eye” (natural jewel found in shells only in Naxos) during your stay on the island.
