The ideal holiday destination
Naxos is the largest island of the Cyclades and during the ancient times it was the center of the archaic Cycladic culture. Its capital is Hora or Naxos Town with approximately 7.000 inhabitants. Naxos is a very popular destination, easily accessible by air and sea, and it has excellent tourist infrastructure.
Naxos is the ideal holiday destination since it perfectly combines the advantages of amazing beaches with beautiful, picturesque mountainous villages. It’s perfect for family holidays, but also for younger people, since its night life is vigorous!
The local cuisine is excellent, mainly because of the rich local agricultural production. There are innumerable taverns and restaurants all over the island that serve fresh fish, delicious local meat and poultry, seafood and excellent cheese. Naxos also produces superb wine.
