Naxos Town (the island's capital) has two more beaches, located at the northern end of the town. These are Vintzi beach and Grotta beach. They are both approximately 1km away from Saint George beach, so it will take you 10 to 15 minutes to get there on foot.
The nearest beaches to the south are Lagouna beach (most consider this a part of Saint George beach), Stelida beach (3.5 km) and Agios Prokopios beach (4.5 km). It is very common to see visitors walking from one beach to the other, especially during the early morning or late afternoon, when the sun's rays are not harmful. It is good exercise.
For a more summery mood, no need to go further, with all those nice beach-front taverns, bars, cafeterias and snack bars, all at your feet. No matter what you ask, they can provide, from breakfast, brunch or light meals to lunch and dinner or from a soft drink to an impressive cocktail ...
While enjoying your day at Saint George beach, you may also take advantage of the opportunity and visit some nearby tourist attractions of historic relevance.
Yria Sanctuary is approximately 2.5km far from the beach and easily accessible by car. If you believe this is too far away, the Archaeological Museum of Naxos Town is only 700m away and this will also give you the opportunity to walk within the walls of the Venetian Castle. And within only a few metres away, you can see the small church of Panagia Myrtidiotissa, built on a tiny islet within the port. Still, if history is your thing, a visit to Portara is a must. Don't let it fool you, it is much closer than it looks (only 1.2km from the beach to the temple).
And if you happen to be in the area, the Old Market of Naxos Town is within your reach. It is beautiful any time of the day, but it is during the sunset that visitors flock to it and it comes alive.
