Naxos the greek island that deserves to be on your bucket list



Naxos the greek island that deserves to be on your bucket list i.e if relaxation, fantastic food, sandy beaches, less hustle and bustle create your perfect getaway. Even though it is the biggest of the cyclades islands and i wouldn’t say it is deserted with no tourist in sight, it is very personal. Yes you see fellow travellers sunbathing at the beach but you also see an equal number of locals doing the same very unlike the famous Santorini and Mykonos.  Here are the top 8 reasons that will make you want to holiday in this beautiful island of the cyclades.

  1. Naxos feels like authentic Greece- Continuing with what i was saying in the paragraph above, in Naxos you experience real greek life, people chitchatting, everyone seems to know each other, people going about their daily lives, local families coming down for dinner at the tavern, etc etc. Nothing looks designed or made to suit the tourists which can be a good or a bad thing i find it the best thing because that is how you experience a place in its reality how it has been and not how it is made to be. 
  2. The fantastic food- Naxos is the most fertile island in the cyclades which translates to excellent quality of produce hence the food tastes fantastic. Even a simple cucumber in the greek salad is delicious, and the potatoes ah how can i not mention, the best in the whole of greece. Also the cheese and the freshest seafood. We stayed in an airbnb flat on Agia anna beach, right at the beach is this Greek tavern , Taverna Gorgona, headed by a fat greek lady who is a sight to watch in action, powerful and in control! we ate most of our meals there and everything was delish. Greek salad, Saganaki cheese ( fried cheese sometimes served with honey my fav) fish from the sea right in front (our fav was Bogues with drinks), fried chickpeas, etc to name a few. At dinner you will be greeted by the ladies husband who would welcome you with a shot of his home made wine. Very chilled informal place frequented by locals and travellers alike. We also went to Maros Taverna near the court square of Hora, another one frequented by the locals and apart from the greek dishes i had the best cake here on our trip. One advice the portion size in Greece is quite big and in Naxos its huge so keep that i mind before ordering.
  3. The sandy beaches- While Santorini and Mykonos have pebbled beaches naxos has sandy. The sand is not the super fine one that sticks to your body and is hard to get off, the texture is just perfect, lol!!! You shake it off and its gone. The beaches are stunning but you don’t find hoards of tourists as expected for such stunning stretches of sand, there are a fair amount of people some travellers and some locals.
  4. The temple of Apollo- Ok move over the stunning sunset of Santorini, the sunset at the temple of Apollo in Naxos is no less stunning. And there is no rail of people what a relief!!! The whole area of the temple is beautiful surrounded by water and interesting rock structures. We also saw people snorkeling.
  5. To visit Los, Paros and Eos- From our beach Paros looked like a stones throw away, lol! Base yourself in Naxos and island hop to the 3 should be done in a day!
  6. Extremely safe- We took bicycles from down our flat (complimentary) and went riding, 10 mins down the ride towards the capital Chora we realized we hadn't got the bike lock so we went back and asked the owner for the locks, here is the reply ' Naxos, no one touch anything, leave it wherever' it came true we found them exactly wherever we left. Kids would just play on the beach and just the whole environment felt very safe and welcoming.
  7. Its a huge island and there is loads to do so if in mood you always find something interesting even party.
  8. To buy the herbs and spices- As i said the quality of produce is excellent so i recommend going into one of the spice shops in the capital Chora and shopping for herbs like oregano, thyme, parsley etc. Capers. Spice mix for tzatziki, greek salad, roast chicken and the likes. Also worth buying are the handmade soaps made from olive oil.

I loved visiting Mykonos, Santorini and Athens on our Greece trip but we had the best time in Naxos because it was spent relaxing, indulging and experiencing the real greek life.

I hope you include Naxos in your list of islands to visit on your Greece trip!
