Plaka, Naxos Island

The small tourist resort of Plaka is the effect of the rapid tourist development of the area during the last few years. The settlement is situated around the homonymous beach, within an open cove at the middle of the western coast of the island, some 10 kilometers far away from the town of Naxos (Chora) at the South.

Accommodation facilities are plenty within the settlement and the taverns offer delicious food of the local cooking, most of them made of local products and especially of the local gorgeous meat.

Swimming and sunbathing is really nice at the lovely long sandy beach in front of the settlement.

At the outset of your way from the beach to the inland, you will see some impressive rock formations of high geological interest. Going on, towards the small village of Byblos, you will see the church of Aghios Matthaios (St. Matthew), built on the place of an earlier one, as it is indicated by the architectural parts of ancient buildings scattered around. Very close to the church you may see the ruins of an ancient defensive tower, the Palaeopyrgos (“old tower” in Greek). A local, quite romantic tradition states that the tower belonged to a princess who, after the loss of her beloved man settled here and became a witch.

For any case of emergence the corresponding services of the town of Naxos (10 kilometers far away to the North) are available for you.

Access from Chora, from the port and the airport is possible by private means (car and motorbikes). As the distance is rather short, you may also use a taxi.
