Located at 5 kilometres away from the capital, Agios Prokopios is one of the most popular beaches of Naxos and considered as one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. The long golden sandy beach extends over 1, 5 kilometres and has beautiful crystalline waters, protected from the strong winds frequently blowing on the island. One part of the beach is organized and offers sun beds, umbrellas and water sports facilities whereas the other part is left to its natural beauty and totally unspoiled by tourist facilities. Sandy dunes are softly rising on this beach and, behind them lies a small village proposing various hotels, restaurants, cafes and bars. Agios Prokopios is reachable by bus which leaves frequently from the capital, Naxos Town, or Hora.
