NAXOS - The Largest Island of the Cyclades

The island of Naxos, once visited, forever in the hearts of its travellers. The island of generosity.

From Naxos comes pure white marble, fields of fresh vegetables, natural springs of crystal clear water, and people with the biggest hearts in Greece!

Naxos will surprise you with its wide diversity of sights and sounds. From the fine sandy beaches, to the top of the highest mountains covered with fragments of white marble, to the cool shady forests and ancient pathways carving into beds of mable, Naxos lacks for nothing.

Most importantly, Naxian people are the heart beat of the Cycladic Islands and the epitome of the Greek 'Filoxenia.' a word, which is a 'feeling' that cannot be defined, but can only be felt. If you want to 'feel' this special 'Filoxenia,' Naxos is the place to find it.

The people in Naxos are friendly, helpful, giving, approachable and always willing to go the 'extra mile' to make her visitors feel special.

That was my feeling when I returned this time from Naxos...Special!

Thank you Vagellis, Ioannis, Katerina, George, Stavros, Christos, Maro, Vasilliki, Maria, and everyone I met on the road, in the tavernas, in the coffee shops, in the villages and in the churches.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:GREAT sandy beaches, great hotels, food, GREAT PEOPLE
  • Cons:ferry companies have made the cost of going more expensive than it should be!
  • In a nutshell:Everytime I have visited Naxos, I come home feeling happy !

    Haha awesome shot. And thumbs up for great style and even better model. Absolutely loved it, esp. as it brings out flashes of my Kefalonian adventures and the overall atmosphere of Greek islands. Congrats again and RESPECT!
