A Nice Lazy Day on Agios Anna Beach – Well it is a Holiday!

It was 9.30am before we awoke and we were feeling quite exhausted.  We decide to have a lazy day on the beach to finally lay all of the stresses of the previous days travel to rest.

We had picked up the bus timetable the previous evening and it shows that there is a very good service on the island.

The buses run every 30 minutes from the port around to Plaka but today we decide to take the bus to the nearer beach of Agios Prokopios.

We got off as soon as we saw the sign for Prokopios but this was one stop too early.  No problems – it gave us the opportunity to look at some of the hotels in the area.  My sister was planning to come to Naxos so I was on the look out for something a bit upmarket for her.  It’s a short walk from the bus stop to the beach.  I can feel the stress and tiredness peel away from me by the second!

Getting carried away with our exploring we find ourselves walking a bit further around the bay in Agios Anna and decide to settle on a nice quiet part of the beach by cafe bar By Ammo.  The sunloungers are free to customers too.  They sell some amazing loukoumades – it would be so rude not to! I did feel a bit sick afterwards but it was worth it.


This small stretch of beach is very attractive with powder white sand, shallow waters and areas where you can find a bit of seclusion.  It has a great selection of bars on offer mostly all with wifi.

Later in the afternoon we walk along the bay towards Agios Anna church
Watch out for the great white ………….
Agios Anna Church
A nice beach side shack for my sister?  Maybe not!
This has been a nice start to the holiday.  Back to the hotel to shower and change.
First a wander around the Kastro area
My sister had mentioned an interest in Hotel Glaros in Agios Giorgios close to Naxos town so we decide to head out there to take a look.  There are some fabulous sunset views along the way.
Hotel Glaros is very nice though booking is through their website only.
After the loukamades earlier I’m not hungry so we walk to the portara in the hope that I’ll build up an appetite.
Keen to explore the island further during our stay we book a bus tour for Saturday.
We buy giros and eat back on the balcony washed down with some retsina.
