Agiassos beach, Naxos Island
The nice sandy beach of Agiassos, situated in front of the homonymous tiny summer resort, is found at a distance of some 21,5 kilometers southeastern to the town of Naxos (Chora), at the western coast of the island.
Accommodation is available in the settlement and you will enjoy tasty food at the small scenic fish taverns at the sea front.
The beach is not organised, but it has nice sand and shallow sea, ideal for small children and water games.
In case of health or other problems, the corresponding services of the capital town of Naxos (21,5 kilometers to the Northwest) are available for you.
Access to the beach is possible only by your own vehicle or motorbike, except from July-August – so there is the possibility of Bus service. Access is not very comfortable, though not difficult, as you can reach the place only via one dirt road from Pyrgaki (just over 3 km northwest) or alternatively via one paved road from Sagri (about 12 km south). If you don’t mind the dust, you will certainly be rewarded for your idea to come to this place.
The sandy beach of Kalandos is situated within a small cove, well protected from the northern winds, at the very southern end of the island, 42 kilometers southeastern to the town of Naxos (Chora).
It is an excellent beach, not organized at all, with nice sand and crystal clear sea, an ideal choice for those looking for a more secluded environment for their swimming. If you decide to come here, don’t forget to bring the necessary provisions along, as the closest store where you can buy something is found 24 kilometers far away.
In case of emergence you should address to the corresponding services of Filoti, 24 kilometers northern to the beach.
Access from Chora, from the port and the airport is possible by private means and it is not very easy. After Filoti the road is not very good. However, if you wish to visit the beach anyway, you may choose the easy way: catch one of the excursion boats departing daily from Chora in summer and getting the visitors to several nice beaches of the island.
