Planning a trip to the island of Naxos Greece? Here’s where you can find Naxos travel tips, the best things to do, and all about our own experiences.

From the moment we pulled into Naxos Port and laid eyes on the Temple of Apollo, we were in love! Ever since our first visit, we’ve been coming back to this Greek island time and time again. 

On our first Naxos trip we used the popular area of Agios Prokopios as our base. We then spent three days relaxing and exploring some of the nicest beaches in Greece. 

Yet, it wasn’t until our second visit that we would truly experience all this island has to offer. This time we decided to rent a car and venture into the mountain villages.

Along the way, we would get a taste of local life, delicious Greek food, and so many spectacular views. We even made it to the stunning coastal town of Apollonos for a lunch to remember.

This is the perfect island to include in your Cyclades itinerary and easy to get to by ferry or flight. We highly recommend seeing Paros afterwards, which is just a quick boat ride away
