Considered among the top 3 beaches of Naxos
, Agios Prokopios lies on the northwest coast of the island, close to the capital. It is long and wide, covered with sand all over and somewhat wind-protected by the large rock in the north end. The sea is blue and transparent.
The beach has developed as a typical summer resort with hotels, studios to rent and various tourist facilities like car rentals, small shops, groceries and plenty of restaurants, most of them lined behind the beach. During the season the bakeries offer local pastry and breakfast menus for those accommodated on self-catering basis. All buildings follow entirely the typical Cycladic style in white and blue, densely built and with narrow streets without footways. And namely these streets are the negative of the village as there is a constant flow of cars and pedestrians, and some of them also do not allow parking spaces. Fortunately, there are a few municipal parking lots and the distances are short so you will find a spot for you vehicle in case you have one. Agios Prokopios has almost merged with the neighbor Agia Anna
and both are literally one road turn away, so a walk between them takes not more than 15 minutes. The bus stop is in the central part, just next to the beach.
Part of the beach is occupied by the sunbeds and parasols of beach bars but still there is plenty of free space. Agios Prokopios is suitable for kids because the water gradually gets deep, although it is not as shallow as Agios Georgios
