Agios Prokopios ( Naxos ) is one of the most popular beaches of the island and considered as one of the most beautiful in Greece and even in Europe. Located about 5 km from the capital, the long sandy beach extends over 1 ½ km and has crystal clear water, protected from the strong winds common to the whole area. Part of it, is organized with umbrellas, chairs, and water sports. The other side of the beach is a wide open sandy expanse. Behind small sand dunes, a little village offers restaurants, cafes and bars. Agios Prokopios can be reached by car or buses that leave regularly from the capital.
