Azalas beach

Amazing rock formations on this pebbly beach
Azalas beach, Naxos

At a distance of less than 500m from Moutsouna you will find a small sign pointing at Azalas, a fantastic beach, ideal for nature enthusiasts. The coastline is mostly rocky with several small coves forming in between. The panoramic view of the Aegean and the aromas from the small bushes will leave you speechless. Looking east, you will see Makares island (uninhabited, at a distance of approximately 8km) and further away Donousa island.

From the sign, the beach is only 1.5km away and no local transportation gets you there. This short scenic route can be made by car, motorbike or on foot, admiring nature’s wonders.

The shore is pebbly (with small and larger pebbles) and the sea bed is sandy. The sound of the water is mesmerizing as it leaks the shore pebbles.

Azalas is a fisherman’s paradise, mainly due to its rocky geology. There is very little accommodation there and when it comes to food, Moutsouna is the only available option nearby.
