The beautiful white sandy beach of Kastraki is located approximately 16 kilometres from Naxos Town; it is the beach right after that of Mikri Vigla. This is a beach with all the qualities expected of a Greek island, cool, crystal-clear water, peace and quiet in the off season and good places to get a decent meal at a fair price.
Access to the beach is made via asphalt road and a dirt road in good condition for the last kilometre which makes it easy to drive to by car or motorbike. Our suggested route to get there from Naxos Town is go south, passing through Vivlos village where you will see the sign after about 16 Kilometres to your right. Kastraki beach is quite long, so from then on you can walk on the beach and decide where it is you want to swim.
At Kastraki beach visitors can find quite a few accommodation units and taverns which are averagely priced in the area, some of which have an amazing view. The Kastraki area is an ideal holiday retreat for those who wish to be in a quiet area and close to the nicest, endless, sandy beaches of the island. Nudists enjoy some quiet areas of the beach since it is quite secluded.
The nearest beaches are those of Mikri Vigla and Alyko.
