Naxos is the largest of the Cyclades islands and has a rugged, mountainous landscape, and long sandy beaches. In fact, Naxos beaches are considered some of the best beaches in Europe.
Naxos has one main town, Chora, and many people see this as an advantage for Naxos as the port, airport, main town and good beaches are all close together. While it’s a great idea to hire a car to explore some of the more remote parts of the island it does mean that you can have a perfectly nice vacation without one too.
There is a lot to see and do and its proximity to a number of other beautiful islands makes it a firm favourite with families, couples and solo travellers year after year. Many people have returned each year for decades!
