Del Mar Cafe (Agios Prokopios)

The pleasant cafe is simply not to be missed by those staying in Agios Prokopios — it offers sea-view seating and is run by a lovely Italian couple, who have added distinct Italian flavor to the cafe's menu: from pizzas to high-quality Italian coffee.


Cafes are omnipresent in Naxos, many doubling as bars in the after-hours. Quite a few beach bars offer complimentary use of sunbeds and umbrellas to customers. In the way of traditional desserts, Naxos is an island known for its walnut pie made with locally-produced citrus liquor. Do try the so-called "spoon sweets" as well — nuts, fruit pieces, and even some vegetables boiled in sugary syrup and served throughout the year.
