Ayios Annas is an anchorage in Naxos.

Naxos is a charter location in Cyclades, a yacht charter area in Greece.

The anchorages on Naxos:

Overview

At Ayios Annas you’ll find a small collection of hotels and tavernas – it’s more of a resort than a village, really. It’s located at the southern end of Ormos Ay. Prokopion, and provides a tranquil alternative to the bustle of the nearby Naxos marina.

Navigation

Ay. Annas provides reasonable shelter from the Meltemi. Anchor 4m-6m from the beach, on the sand, or go stern (or brow) at the outer end of the small pier. There’s also a sunken chain linked to the mole, but the berths along it are often taken up by the local resorts and day-trippers.

General Information

Water and electricity are available. There’s a mini-market within walking distance. Be aware that out of season, facilities will be limited.

Beaches

Ay. Annas Beach

While it’s not the most spectacular beach on Naxos, Ay. Annas does have good facilities and is certainly family-friendly. You can rent sunbeds and umbrellas here, and the water is crystal clear, perfect for swimming and snorkelling. It’s really a continuation of Ormos Prokopion Beach, so if you love the sensation of wet sand between your toes, it’s perfect for a long stroll. 

Prokopion Beach

Rich golden sands, limpid waters, safe for swimming. The middle section of the beach is usually the quietest, but you’re most likely to find nudist or semi-nudist sunbathers here

There are plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for rent: the average price is around 10 euros for 2 people. Even during peak season, the beach doesn’t usually get busy before 11am, so for an early morning stroll or swim, it’s perfection.

Maragas Beach

As the Roman poet Catullus so beautifully put it, when he described Ariadne, standing on the shore, mourning the departure of her lover Theseus:  ‘Here are the never silent sands of Naxos’  Was she gazing out to sea from Maragas beach? We’ll never know. 

What we do know, however, is that this spectacular 4km stretch of sand is one of the best beaches in all of Greece. With clear turquoise waters, super cold even on the hottest of days, this place is unforgettable.  So for those who want a longer walk down from Ay. Annas, or an early morning run, it’s worth heading down south to this magical place.

Places of Interest

Chapel of Ay. Annas

The charming chapel of Agia Anna is located on the nearby hillside overlooking the bay. It’s well worth the climb for the stunning views.

Temple of Dionysus

It’s about a 40-minute walk through the lush fields, more or less, but a visit to the excavated ruins of the Temple of Dionysus, god of wine, fertility, and the arts. Dionysus was credited with a split personality – he could bring joy and divine ecstasy, or fearful rages, reflecting the dual nature of wine.

Places to Eat

Avli

Only 200m from the beach, this small family-run taverna is famous for serving fresh fish and locally caught octopus. For something special, try their scorpionfish! Reasonable priced, and with a reputation for relaxed yet friendly service. They offer vegetarian and gluten-free options

Palatia

Right on the beach, so it’s the perfect place to enjoy a couple of glasses of ouzo or house white while the sun goes down.  Great selection of mouthwatering local specialities, all prepared in-house of course: marinated white anchovies as a starter, perhaps, followed by jumbo shrimp souvlaki, sardines, taramosalata, fresh fish salad, grilled fresh fish, everything freshly caught and delicious! 

Greek Taverna Gianoullis

This is a highly rated taverna, on the way to Prokopion, which is famous for its warm family welcome and amazing atmosphere. Here, you’ll never complain about the portions being too small. When you go, leave room for some of their handmade sweets when it’s time for dessert.  For a taste of true Naxos hospitality, this is a place you won’t want to miss!

Santana Beach Bar

With friendly laid back service, reasonable prices, and great snacks, you’ll be tempted to just let the hours pass by, savoring the laid-back lifestyle that Naxos has to offer.
