It’s Naptime For Naxos

Naxos, Greece

Naxos, the largest of the Greek Cyclades islands, doesn’t shut down to the extent that Santorini does — there are far more year-round residents. Yet most of the businesses catering to tourists close by the end of October, as many of those are owned by people who live in Athens. The hotels reopen in April, and the visitors start rolling in by May. Naxos isn’t on the cruise ship circuit so it never feels overcrowded. It’s an amazing island with historical ruins, pristine beaches and picturesque villages nestled in hills. These photos taken late last June attempt to do justice to the beautiful scenery.

    I wish we had gone to Naxos. We only did Athens – Santorini – Mykonos because we had our baby with us. Maybe next time…

    Stunning. We only spent one day in Santorini as part of a cruise- I absolutely want to go back and explore the other islands in more detail (and with more time).

    I hope to visit Naxos one day – didn’t make it while in Greece previously. Thanks for the glimpse!

    I still haven’t been to Greece, so thanks for cluing me in to this place. Looks like a good option.
