My wife and I spent the second week of our honeymoon at Studios Athina on Plaka beach on Naxos. The location is by far the most beautiful on the island. The studios are a pristine white and blue with ground lavishly landscaped and a pool. Though we were there a few weeks before high season began the rates were outstanding, half what we paid in Athens, and at least twice the value. Across a tiny back street, 50 yards from our perfect window with a view, is Plaka beach.
Easily the best beach on the island. Half a dozen wonderful restaurants, horseback riding, windsurfing and scuba diving all within a 10 minute walk or in our case a 2 minute scooter ride (65 euro for a week including insurance). The beach itself is clean, with families and couples lounging in the soft sand. Parts of the long beach have tiki-style umbrella set up for the casual sunbather or swimmer. The water is the turquoise you’d imagine and you can watch the sun set over the water every night from any of the local restaurants.
Athina, lovely Athina, helped us enjoy our time more than any host on our trip to Greece. There was a taxi waiting for us at the airport. We had only mention an interest in renting a scooter and she put us in contact with a company that had it to our doorstep in less than an hour. She provided us with expert advice on cities to visit up in the hills of Naxos, how to arrange for an excursion to Santorini (perfect as a day trip), even on the best local ice cream shop in Naxos Town.
My wife and I spent a week there but could’ve stayed another month. I highly recommend Naxos (though staying out of Naxos Town as there is not much to do beyond souvenir shop) and I even more recommend staying at Studios Athina on Plaka beach. http://www.studiosathina.gr/ . If we ever able to return to Greece we would go out of our way to return to Naxos and stay with Athina.
