Most Popular Undiscovered Island
“Big Sweet has this island, virtuous are the faces of
people, piles are shaped by melons, peaches, figs and
the sea is calm. I looked at the people - never this
people have been frightened by earthquakes or by Turks,
and their eyes did not burn out.
Here freedom had extinguished the need for freedom, and
life spread out as happy sleeping water. And if
sometimes was discomposed, never rose tempest. Safety
was the first gift of island that I felt as walking
around Nàxos." (N. Kazantzakis, "Report to El.Greko").
Naxos is the largest island of
Cyclades and it is located in the
center of this complex, between
Paros and Mykonos. According to
mythology, this was the nuptial isle
of the god Dionysus, god of wine.
This is why there is a sanctuary
dedicated to Dionysus in the inland
of Naxos island. Ideal for families
and romantic couples, Naxos Greece
is famous for the exotic beaches.
Plaka, Agios Prokopios, Orkos and
Mikri Vigla are among the most
beautiful beaches on the island,
while the entire western coastline
is ideal for windsurfing and
kitesurfing due to the strong winds
that blow there in the afternoon. A
drive to the inland will bring you
to picturesque villages and
