A favorite of the hippies in the 1960’s and 1970’s, Plaka beach on Naxos island remains one of the most attractive and popular on Naxos. An endless stretch of golden sand, with crystal-clear waters, it is a continuation of Agia Anna beach, with sand dunes adorned with sea lilies after August as a…
Long stretch of white sand, will definitely find a less crowded spot as well as parking during high season.
One of my favorite places of the island. Plaka is a beach, where you can find many restaurants, coffee places, bars, pool cafes and hotels with a pool by the beach where you can buy a drink and use their outdoor facilities (pool, yard, sunbeds and umbrellas)!

“The Vallindras distillery, which has pioneered Naxos’ renowned citron liqueur –one of three Greek aperitifs marketed with a Protected Designation of Origin- is definitely worth a visit. It all began in the second half of the 19th century, when Grigorios Vallindras founded a workshop for producing the traditionally local citron-flavored spirit (kitrorako) –already in common use. In 1896, his son, Markos, decided to develop the business, creating a new distillate with alcohol and citron leaves –the citron liqueur we know today. He exported the spirit to many places abroad which had thriving Greek communities (Russia, USA, Egypt, Asia Minor), took part in many Greek and international fairs. ”
