Agiassos, Naxos Island

The tiny summer resort of Agiassos is situated at a distance of 21,5 kilometers southeastern to the town of Naxos (Chora) and surrounds the homonymous sandy beach. It counts less than 150 permanent residents, who use tο say that it is here that Sanoudos, the duke of Naxos in the 13th century, disembarked when he came to take possession of Naxos, after the Francs of the 4th Crusade had conquered Constantinople, in 1204.

The settlement offers facilities for accommodation and you will enjoy nice food and drink at the small scenic taverns of the sea front.

Swimming is really a pleasure at the nice beach with the fine sand and the shallow sea, in front of the settlement. The beach is well protected by the northern winds. Or, you may go to the nearby cove of Rou, only one kilometer far away to the West. This beach is not organized at all and the fans of solitary swimming and calmness, will find here an ideal place for swimming, sunbathing and sea games and sports, especially windsurfing. If you feel like being more in private, you may fall the dirt road southwards for 7 kilometers, where, after you have passed by the tiny church of Aghios Sostis or Aghios Sozon as the locals call it, you will reach a wonderful secluded sandy beach with crystal clear turquoise sea and a nice view of the hills across, within an excellent landscape. Sometimes, the southern winds make noise and whip up the sand of the beach, which is quite annoying, but in general the beach is very nice.

Once at Aghiassos, apart from relaxing and enjoying the beach, you may visit the small church of Panaghia (Virgin Mary) and the important biotope at a short distance from the settlement; here, you will watch the migrant birds which stop here on their way to Africa.

In case of health or other problems you should address to the corresponding services of the town of Naxos, some 21,5 kilometers to the Northwest.

Access is possible only by your own vehicle, 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..
