Naxos. Beautiful beaches, and more

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.

Naxos combines impressive mountainous beauty, golden sands with crystal blue waters, a capital that comes out of the Venetian 15th century rule with a magnificent castle among the cycladic traditional white houses, a series of calm fishing harbours, Byzantine churches and several sites of extreme archaeological interest like the temples to Apollo and Dimitra and Iria among others.

Naxos was one of my favorite places of the trip. The island is very underrated, compared to other islands. The beaches are the best I've ever seen, and very private as well. The island offers a lot of variety, and has not been over developed. You really get the feeling you're in Greece, unlike some other islands.

Agia Anna Beach

This was just one of the beautiful beaches not too far from the main town.

Mountains

Once you get out of the main town, ansd start driving inland, Naxos becomes very rocky, and mountanous. It's a really nice contrast between beach, and hills.
