“Green” might not be the first word that comes to mind when thinking of a Greek island, but Naxos might very well be the exception to the rule. With its fruit trees and olive groves, fertile valleys and sky-high mountains, the greenest of the Cyclades also features beaches that are some of the most pristine in Greece, interesting traditional villages and historical and archeological sites that are definitely worth a visit. Naxos Town, steeped in history, is one of the liveliest port towns in the Cyclades and never really shuts down, also making it ideal for those who want to travel in the low season. The largest island in the Cyclades, Naxos offers lots of variety, making it a destination for different types of visitors, from those seeking relaxation to others who love nightlife. It is also extremely well-connected and a great starting point to explore the rest of the Cyclades.
