Naxos Holidays

Naxos holidays

Naxos is the largest of the Cyclades. It is also, with Santorini, Mykonos and Paros, now one of the most popular, due largely to much improved ferry links. But away from the main town and handful of burgeoning resorts Naxos has largely preserved its slower, more Greek pace of life. It offers abundant sandy beaches and a fertile interior still dedicated to farming.

Naxos Town is particularly attractive, its extensive waterfront bedecked with tavernas and small shops. Behind, a maze of narrow streets and tiny passages leads to the Venetian Kastro, worth visiting for the island’s archaeological museum.

Naxos Town

Holidays In Naxos

Naxos boasts some 92 kms of beach and nearly all are excellent. Aghios Georgios, closest to the town, is sandy and very long. Some 8 kilometres away – and easily reached by the very good local bus network – Prokopios and Ayia Anna are of fine golden sand shelving gently into a clear blue sea. Small but growing resorts, busy in the summer months, have sprung up behind these beaches. Carry on south and the beaches simply get better and better (and emptier) culminating in the great golden sweep of Pyrgaki.

You can explore Naxos very effectively by bus or organised excursion or hire car. Visit the old capital of Chalki, delightful Philoti, and Apollonas in the north, where a large statue of Apollo (a ‘Kouros’) lies to this day. Inland is superb walking country with mountains, springs, valleys and plains and guided walking trips can be booked locally.

Fly to Mykonos or Santorini, transfer to the port, ferry to the island (included), onward transfer to your accommodation (max. 30 mins). On the return the reverse applies. Alternatively fly via Athens with onward domestic flight or ferry. The best routing can vary according to flight timings and seasonal ferry schedules. If an overnight hotel is necessary we will include it and all transfers in the quoted holiday price.

c 1 hr by ferry from Mykonos, c 2 hrs from Santorini or c 5 hrs by ferry from Athens (or 40 mins domestic flight)

On Naxos we have appointed local agents who arrange your transfers, can give information, book cars and excursions, and can be contacted if required. However, it is important to state that we do not employ our own representatives, nor are transfers escorted, so our holidays here are recommended for the more independent traveller.

Please also bear in mind that travel plans involving ferries can be disrupted at short notice due to the vagaries of ferry timetables, high winds etc. Although rare, should this occur we will rebook your hotels and transfers accordingly.

Santorini, Mykonos, Paros and Naxos can all be combined – the minimum stay on each is 3 nights. For transfer reasons the island from which you are flying home from should be booked as your last centre.

Andros can be combined with Mykonos. Amorgos can be twinned with Naxos or Paros as a second centre.
