Naxos

Naxos

Located in the heart of Cyclades, Naxos, the largest island of the complex, holds promise for every visitor. The island is full of natural beauty and unique scents, a rich and long history as well as endless experiences.
Naxos has the cosmopolitan atmosphere of a modern tourist resort, but at the same time has kept its traditional colour and its local culture. Hora (the main town) is a harbour and the administrative centre of the island. It is a modern town, which offers all kinds of facilities.

Naxos is like Greece in a nutshell, where you can experience from mythology and ancient civilization to wild flowers and breathtaking seascapes, all on one exceptional island. Naxos island is big enough to have the highest mountain in the Cyclades (mount Zas), olive groves, green valleys with small rivers and of course the best palette of secluded beaches.
Naxos is a fertile island with a unique landscape which has not been destroyed by tourism. It has a great past but also a lively present that makes it a unique place to visit at any time of the year.

Thanks to its rich history, Naxos island offers an abundance of historical sites. While in Naxos town we suggest you visit the Portara, the gate to the Temple of Apollo which is the island’s trademark and the Sanctuary of Dionysus. While in the old town, you should wander through the winding alleys of the 13th century Venetian castle and not miss a visit to the Archaeological museum. In nearby Grotta area you will witness the remains of the prehistoric Mycenaean town.

As you are in Naxos not miss visiting many of the villages of the island and see the wonderful settlements near the beaches and the inland tranquility and beautiful buildings you will witness at St. Anne and St. Procopius, for more quiet moments visit St. Arsenius, and one of the most impressive villages - Apeirathos.

Naxos island has some of the most beautiful beaches that can satisfy every visitor. Apart from Agios Georgios, the beaches of Agia Anna, Plaka and Agios Prokopios are the closest to Naxos town (6 km) and offer azure water and white sand. Other beaches like Lagouna and Mikri Vigla are ideal for windsurfing and kite as the wind there is ideal for those sports. For those who seek quiet and secluded beaches, Aliko, Kastraki and Pirgaki are an ideal choice.
