Naxos Island

Naxos is the largest and was the most important of the Cyclades, a rich island with a natural environment suitable for the development of farming and stock raising. It is also an island with good natural harbors that helped much to its strong continuous cultural presence in Greece from the end of the 4th millennium BC to the present day.

Naxos Island is the most fertile island in Cyclades and is probably one of the most attractive and beautiful of the Greek Islands. Combines and offers impressive mountainous beauty, golden sands with crystal blue waters, a capital that comes out of the Venetian 15th century rule with a magnificent castle.

Traditional white houses, a series of calm fishing harbors, Byzantine churches and several sites of extreme archaeological interest are some of Naxos beauties. The temples of Apollo and Dimitra and Iria are among the sites.

Large enough to be explored, Naxos promises you unforgettable holidays. Lately Naxos becomes famous worldwide from the surfers that gather here to enjoy the summer wind. The location of the island in the Cyclades makes it ideal for windsurfing (the Meltemia are the summer winds that blow in the Cyclades during the day from June to August). Next to windsurfing a series of other activities started to attract more visitors to the island, at mountain Za that has water, something rare in the Cyclades.

In Naxos you can find some fine hotels and restaurants and nice small tavernas all serving good fish and local specialties.
