Naxos is the largest island in the Cyclades, boasting history, culture and pristine beaches. From the soft sands found along the coastline to the hilltop villages of the island's interior, Naxos offers something for both sun worshippers and culture lovers. A wealth of local produce is grown on this unusually green island, ensuring Naxos also boasts a fantastic foodie scene.
Located between Mykonos and Santorini, Naxos is home to a unique landscape which differs from its Cycladic neighbours, with green valleys hidden among its dramatic mountains. According to Greek mythology, Zeus was raised on Naxos's highest mountain, Mt Zas, while the island was also dedicated to Dionysus, god of wine, who was much revered and worshipped here.
Those looking to unwind are spoilt for choice when it comes to Naxos's beaches, many of which are often uncrowded, hidden in secluded bays. Away from the immaculate beaches, the island's towns and villages are well worth exploring, from the bustling capital to the enchanting Chalki and Apiranthos, tucked away in the mountains.
