Aliko is a wonderful beach on the south western side of Naxos Cyclades. Located only 17 km south of Naxos Town and just after the beaches of Kastraki and Glyfada, Aliko is lovely place to relax away from the crowded resorts of the island. This special region consists of many small bays with soft white sand and crystal water. Some tamarisk trees on the shore provide shade to visitors, while the beach is not organized with sunbeds and umbrellas. Above the beach of Aliko, there is a unique cedar forest with marvelous sand dunes. This forest has been declared a protected natural area and creates an exotic landscape. Aliko can be reached by private means or by bus. A local bus to Aliko departs from the port of Naxos 6 times a day.
