All main activities in Naxos are related to the sea, the air and the summer.
The southern and south-western beaches are a hotspot for wind and kite surfing, classic sailing (rubber boats/catamarans), banana water rides, water skiing and diving.
The endless sandy beaches and dirt roads that meander throughout the south-western plains offer fascinating horse-riding trails.
But the island’s mountains and valleys with their network of traditional paths are also ideal for hiking all year round, and there are plenty of challenging dirt road tracks to explore by mountain bike. The sea has the right temperature for swimming or relaxing, but those who want something different can have fun on water slopes.
There are many ways to explore an island rich in history, beauty and diverse landscapes. To get an overall picture or an introduction, you can choose a bus tour. Independent travellers can rely on a tourist guide and rent a means of transport.
The tourist guides will offer you a deep knowledge of the island’s history, mythology and natural history.
