Located in the centre of Cyclades, Naxos is the perfect island for romantic couples, large groups of friends and families. This is an island with exotic beaches, picturesque villages, lovely chapels and rich history.
Naxos Town is a mixture of Venetian and Cycladic architecture. The Old Town is called Kastro and it is surrounded by large Medieval walls. At the entrance of the port, there is the Portara, a large marble gate, the only remaining from an ancient temple of Apollo. The port of the island is found in Naxos Town, while the airport is only 2 km away.
The most beautiful and famous beaches of Naxos are located on the western side of the island. Agios Prokopios, Plaka, Agia Anna, Orkos and Mikri Vigla are among the most beautiful beaches in Cyclades, with soft sand and crystal water. In these beaches, and particularly in Mikri Vigla, the wind is perfect for windsurfing and kite surfing.
Apart from enjoying the amazing sea of Naxos, do not miss an excursion to the inland: you will discover mountainous villages with traditional architecture, lush greenery and many sightseeing spots, including ancient sanctuaries, Venetian towers and two giant statues of Kouros.
