Naxos is perfect for a traveller's next adventure.

Located in the Cyclades islands, Naxos is home to more than 6,000 residents. This island is incredibly important historically (several ruins are available for viewing, particularly those on the nearby islet of Portara), and also the most fertile of the Greek islands, resulting in increased agriculture and local food; fruit and vegetable crops, as well as cattle breeding, make Naxos the most self sufficient island in the entire Cyclades island chain. HomeAway offers a wide variety of villas on Naxos to serve as a home base during any stay on the island.

Aside from Naxos accommodations, HomeAway offers relaxing apartments of Naxos. These properties sleep 10+ people, making them ideal choices for groups with large numbers of friends and family. What's more, these accommodations come with all the amenities needed to turn a holiday rental into a real home while on holiday. For those searching for more active pursuits, villas on Mykonos are nearby and on an island sure to thrill. The island of Santorini, also close to Naxos, is the perfect getaway spot for those seeking secluded holiday villas.

Things to do

Captain Panos Sailing Day Tours:

Captain Panos Sailing Day Tours is one of the most popular activities on the island of Naxos. Visitors will enjoy the waters around Naxos, watch dolphins in the bay, and visit various caves along the shoreline. Refreshments are provided, as well as a photo CD at the end of the day.

Portara:

The archaeological site of Portara is located on an island now only connected to Naxos by a causeway. This unfinished temple faces Delos, said to be Apollo's birthplace. Built around 530 BC, this temple was never completed due to political unrest. In the 5th and 6th centuries AD, it was converted into a church (as were many Greek temples).

Plaka Beach:

Located on the Western side of the island, Plaka Beach faces the island of Paros. Plaka is comprised of fine white sand and white marble. Sunsets at the beach are particularly popular, given its location. Restaurants and beach facilities are nearby. A portion of the beach is meant for nude sunbathing.

Chora, Naxos City:

The city of Naxos, also called 'Chora' (as are all towns on the Greek islands with the same name as the island on which they stand), is located on the west side of the island. This town is the oldest centre of archaic Cycladic culture in all of Greece.

Kastro:

This former seat of power houses a 13th-century castle and a 16th-century Cathedral. Along with a number of Venetian residences from this time, the building also houses two very important Greek museums, the Archaeological Museum and the Venetian Museum.

Eggares Olive Press Museum:

Visit the Eggares Olive Press Museum. The press itself dates back to 1884, and the large olive press serves as an example for the 90 olive presses across Greece. The press is unfortunately no longer in use.

Weather on Naxos

The weather on Naxos embodies a Mediterranean climate. Summer temperatures peak in July and August and reach to around 35°C, and dip to around 10°C in colder months. Rains occur only in January and February. A group of annual winds called the Etesians (or Meltemi in Turkish) blow from mid-May to mid-September. These winds are most active in the late afternoon and die down in the evening.

Travel to Naxos

Arriving on Naxos is simplest by plane. Naxos Island National Airport (JNX) has departing and arriving flights from Athens Airport (ATH) and other European cities daily. Taxis and boats are available for hire on the island itself. Car-carrying ferries and passenger ferries travel to all the major islands in the Aegean. Ferries arrive into the town of Naxos (of the same name). The major road leading into the central island is called the Leof Naxou Glinadou Apollona.

A Real Gem.

5 of 5
This house is great! Refurbished to a very high standard - it was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable (memory foam mattresses), air conditioning worked well, and the bathroom was modern. Lovely rainfall shower! The house was spotlessly clean and linen was changed in the middle of our one week stay. There's a beautiful shaded courtyard where you can eat and even a barbeque. The lounge has two lovely sofas and a library of books and DVDs. It's well-situated, in the ancient town, only a 5-7 minute walk from the restaurants and shops, and from the bus stop that will take you to all the beaches. The owner's representative, Janine, met us off the ferry and took us to the house. She was very friendly and helpful in showing us around the house and giving us info about various places of interest. It was good to know that she was nearby and contactable if we needed her. The owner, Chris, was in touch throughout the lead up to our stay, including on the day of our arrival, and was helpful during the booking process. He has thought of everything, and really cares that his tenants have a good experience. We felt secure all the way through. We hope to stay in the house again.We loved it!

Very spacious and clean - great host with just the right level of contact

4 of 5
A very nice apartment but you do need a car if you want more than the local beach and local restaurants. There’s a good bus service for which you need to pre buy tickets or sweet talk the driver and he will let you hop off and back on to purchase when they pass a sales point. The accommodation is quite remote but that’s a good thing if that’s what you’re after. Stelios met us off the ferry and took us there. He gave us fresh fruit, eggs and bread as a gift and replaced the towels after 3 days of our week there. Other than that he didn’t come round but did offer any help were we to ask. He did find us a good deal on car hire so he is worth tapping into for help. South of the accommodation are some great beaches that are worth exploring. If you like the crowds go north along the shore line. Naxos town is great at night and my top tip for eating out is chose the town square and not the sea front. The old town is spectacular and a must see as are the villages. Overall a great base for seeing the island and a great host.
