The largest and the greenest island belonging to the group of Cyclades in the Aegean Sea, Naxos is a perfect holiday escape to experience the rich extravagance of the nature and the Greek culture. Naxos has been long regarded as the childhood home of the King of Gods, Zeus. A fragment of the Greek mythology also states that Naxos was the island where the God of Wine Dionysus tied the nuptial, which explains the famous Dionysus sanctuary situated within the inland city.
An ideal tourist hotspot that is flocked by romantic couples and families alike, Naxos is lined with some of the most exotic beaches in Greece, including Mikri Vigla, Orkos, Agios Prokopios and Plaka. Owing to the strong winds that blow during the daytime along the entire western coastline of the island, the area is perfect for adventure sports such as kitesurfing and windsurfing.
The island possesses an enormous variation in its landscapes and seascapes that include towering mountains, lush green valleys, fascinating gorges, dreamy hillside villages and enchanting shores. Take a drive to the inland and you can experience the flavors of life in the Greek villages, with their native inhabitants all decked up in their traditional attire and churning up delectable local dishes with exotic herbs and greens gathered from the woods on the neighbouring hill slopes.
