WELCOME TO NAXOS

Naxos is the largest island of Cyclades and it is located in the center of this complex, between Paros and Mykonos. According to mythology, this was the nuptial isle of the god Dionysus, god of wine. This is why there is a sanctuary dedicated to Dionysus in the inland of Naxos island. Ideal for families and romantic couples.


Naxos is famous for its exotic beaches. Plaka, Agios Prokopios, Orkos and Mikri Vigla are among the most beautiful beaches on the island, while the entire western coastline is ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing due to the strong winds that blow there in the afternoon. A drive to the inland will bring you to picturesque villages and interesting sightseeing.

WELCOME TO NAXOS

The city of Naxos

With a lovely waterfront and elegant Venetian architecture, it is considered one of the most beautiful Cycladic villages.

PORTARA

Naxos Portara, Cyclades: The Portara, or the Great Door, is essentially a massive marble doorway, that stands proudly as the jewel of Naxos. It lies close to the port, on the islet of Palatia which was once a hill. Back in the ancient times a strip of land connected the north side of Naxos port to the islet of Palatia. Today, the strip of land has been replaced by a causeway. Myth has it that the islet of Palatia was exactly where Ariadne, the Minoan princess was abandoned by her lover, Theseus after he killed the Minotaur on the island of Crete.


Around the year 530 B.C when Naxos was at the peak of it's glory, the then ruler, Lygdamis wanted to build the highest and most magnificent buildings in all of Greece in Naxos. He ordered for a massive temple to be built but when a war broke out between Naxos and Samos, the work stopped abruptly. After that, Lygdamis was overthrown in 506 BC and the temple, which was supposed to be at least a hundred feet tall, was never completed. Today all that remains of that temple is the Portara.

PORTARA

PORTARA

The most famous landmark of Naxos, a massive 2,500-year-old marble doorway that leads nowhere.

NAXOS BEACHES

Beaches in Naxos are different than the beaches in other islands of the Cyclades due to their characteristic length. In fact, Plaka is the longest beach, located on the western side of the island, where visitors can also find other Naxos beaches with soft sand, crystal turquoise waters and a beautiful view over the neighboring island of Paros.


Very nice Naxos beaches are also Agios Prokopios, Agia Anna, Orkos and Mikri Vigla, which is very popular among windsurfers and kitesurfers. The western side of the island with these beautiful places is the most developed in tourism. The eastern side is secluded with wild bays and affected by the wind. You will find below a list with the best beaches in Naxos island.
