Naxos Luxury Vacations
Naxos is ideal for those who want to spend lots of time on the beach as it boasts some of the most beautiful stretches of sand in the entire country. Its granite and marble beaches along the south-west coast are whiter and brighter than any other, edged by calm azure waters that are ideal from a refreshing dip. Mountain lovers can take advantage of the island’s mostly mountainous terrain, hiking alongside goats to reach jaw-dropping sea views while only the jingling of the bells around their necks and the songs of the birds can be heard. Join sailing excursions to nearby smaller islands and caves where you can swim through brilliant blue waters with a waterproof flashlight. Explore multiple ancient sites like the Gate of the Apollo Temple that greets visitors as they enter the harbor, the Temple of Demeter and many remnants that date from 3000 to 2000 BC, during the period of the Cycladic Civilization. The island is filled with countless outstanding restaurants – it would take months to sample them all – many dishes feature island specialties like tasty cheeses, locally-grown vegetables, fruits, meats and plenty of fresh seafood. You’ll have to get a taste of the local ouzo, distilled, pure and considered to be some of the best in all of Greece.
