Aliko - main beach

Aliko is a nature reserve on the southwest coast of Naxos island, It occupies a small peninsula characterized with its sand dunes, cedar trees and a series of lovely coves. The most easily accessible beach is called Agios Georgiou, after the name of the small chapel built right next to the beach, but since there is another beach with the same name in the capital, it is usually referred to as Aliko main beach or just Aliko.

This beach lies in the southern end of Aliko, above Pirgaki and after the abandoned hotel construction. The paved coastal road ends at the abandoned building but there is also a dirt road which goes down to the sea. Although relatively large, the beach is not organized and there are no sunbeds and parasols to rent, nor cantinas. Aliko main beach is a mixture of spots with fine sand and coarse sand mixed with tiny pebbles. The sea is shallow around the shore but there are underwater rocks which you can see as dark spots in the transparent blue water.
