Destination NAXOS in Cyclades, Greece

Naxos is Greece in a nutshell, where you can experience all that’s good about Greece, from mythology and ancient civilization to wild flowers and island-studded seascapes, on one exceptional island. Naxos is big enough to have the highest mountains in the Cyclades, broad vales of olive groves, secret valleys with fairytale pools, and the best selection of deserted beaches in Greece; small enough to be explored in a holiday – although you’ll want to return for more.

Island life is shaped by the rhythms of the seasons and agricultural traditions; this is a working island which has not been destroyed by dependence on tourism and runaway development. It has a great past but also a lively present, making it a rewarding place to visit or live on at any time of the year.

The island of Naxos is the largest island in Cyclades and by far the most fertile among them. It is located in the centrally in Cyclades and has only recently been touristically developped. Its innumerous sandy beaches scattered around the entire territory of the island, make it an ideal holiday island for nature lovers as well as families who seek a quiet and beautiful place for their vacation. More than 64 villages, most of which are mountaineous, cover its slopes. They are well known for their excellent cool climate and their unsurpassed local cuisine. It's mountainous interior will surprise you and so will its resemblance to the island of Crete.
