Out and About
Naxos is still relatively unspoilt, with a simple charm and although the emphasis is on the beautiful beaches there are some archaeological sites, churches and historical remains that are well worth a visit.
Naxos is a popular destination for water based activities, whether it is windsurfing, water skiing, snorkelling or a relaxing cruise around the islands.
With a glorious coastline and green, fertile landscape, Naxos is a walker's dream. There is so much to see such as olive groves and orchards, traditional villages, ancient castles, monasteries and churches. So for one of the best ways to see the island, take to the hills for a leisurely stroll or join one of the organised walking trips.
Although there are many paths and routes for walkers, there are also many tracks off the beaten track which are best explored on horseback or bike. Some great views are to be had from these paths and the sunsets are just amazing so if you are fed up lying, relaxing on the beach, get on your bike and head for the hills.
Naxos is so easy to get around and has some great beaches and plenty to see which makes it a great choice for a relaxing holiday.
