Definitely off the beaten path... unorganized and secluded beach. Had to walk 5-10 thru the cedar forest and then a somewhat challenging hill but it was totally worth it. Water was see thru. We had our private cove and enjoyed the peacefulness. A couple nudists...More

The beach is beautiful and the water is crystal clear- perfect for swimming. Be warned though- there is absolutely no shade, so take an umbrella with you!

It's soooooo worth it to travel down soutch the island to visit this remote beach! If you prefer a more secluded and naturally shaded type of sunbathing then this is the place to be. Who needs parasols when you have these beautiful trees to hide...More

Rented a car, drove to Alyko. Beautiful beach. Access is through some foresty dunes, and to get to the beach you will have to make a semi climb down some steep areas. Water is clear and beautiful. It was a bit crowded unfortunately. When we...More

In the South west of Island in the Aliko park. Really wild ambient for the better beach of the Island in my opinion. The car parking is on the road and you need to walk in the pathway on Sand and dirt for 10-15 minutes...More

This place was brought up in my search, wasn't sure if good. Definitely a nice ATV drive thru the countryside and away from all the hussle of the tourist area. A visit to Naxos is not complete without going there. Calm, nice and secluded is...More

Getting down to the beach is easier on the Migri Vigla side. Please treat this place like a treasure. To me it really is incredibly beautiful and visiting was the highlight of my holiday. Beaches are 90% nudist. Quite a few coves for 1 on...More

Not exactly sure, what this is, our accommodation was at the Cedar Forest, it is Cedar trees on the sand dunes. If we were not staying here, would not have come to visit.

We visited Alyko on a catamaran day trip, but you could also access by car. It was one of the most beautiful beaches we visited and definitely worth the effort to get there. The water is SO clear!

Much more secluded than the main West coast beaches with beautiful scenery and swimming. One item of interest is an abandoned 'mystery'building with cuddling monkeys graffiti and all kinds of archways and window views

There are buses (line 7 and 17). I was staying in Plaka and cycled. Its only 8km they say but it still took 30-40 minutes because some of the roads are poor, it's warm and not always well sign posted. When you walk from... More
