Naxos for beach lovers
There are many wonderful beaches to choose from in Naxos, but the following is considered one of the best. Plaka Beach is located on the southwestern tip of the island, and believe it or not it used to be a popular nudist beach, however, due to the increase in visitors this has been left behind. It stretches for approximately 1.8 miles of golden sands, deep turquoise water, and a horizon that stretches on endlessly. There are specific areas where you can rent umbrellas or sun loungers, so you can enjoy your day at the beach more comfortably. At the same time, due to the fact that it is a very busy place for tourists, you will have several bars, taverns, and restaurants very close to the shore, in case you want to refresh yourself with a drink or eat something delicious. There are some villas in Naxos close to the beach. Their distances may vary, some are 60 metres away, while others may be about 2.5 km away. It all depends on which villa you choose, but the good news is that it will always be easy to get to the beach no matter where you are. If you are a beach lover and want to see a lot more, we recommend taking a ferry from Naxos to Antiparos, which will take about 50 minutes, and enjoy the beaches. You can also rent a villa in Antiparos to make your visit more comfortable.
Naxos for nightlife lovers
If you rent a villa in Naxos and you would like to continue that fun when the sun goes down, you will find plenty of places to have a good time here. Although the best-known spots to enjoy the nightlife are Mykonos, Santorini and even Paros (if you're excited about its nightlife, we recommend you our holiday rentals and lettings in Paros), you can still have a fun night out with your friends in Naxos. One of the most frequented places is Ocean Club, especially if you want a vibrant atmosphere for dancing. It is a fabulous nightclub with a large dance floor and an outdoor terrace, so you can choose where to hang out. Its style is modern yet beachy, with large palm trees, and a relaxed and spacious structure. One of its greatest strengths is undoubtedly the talented DJs who come to play the best music and mixes to keep you dancing until dawn.
Due to the fertile soil and excellent climatic conditions of Naxos, much of its economic income comes from agriculture.

Top 7 travel tips in Naxos
1. Discover the incredible Kastro Castle
Not only can you enjoy paradisiacal beaches on this island, but also interesting historical monuments. The castle of Kastro was built in 1207 by the conqueror Markos II Sanoudos, who came from Venice. It was used as a large protective fortress, built with a pentagonal shape, four storeys, large towers, and high stone walls. Today it belongs to the Archaeological Service, which has allowed it to be preserved so well all these years, and be visited by tourists on a regular basis. Another place where you can enjoy historical monuments is Milos. It's a bit far from Naxos (about 4 hours by ferry), but if it's something you like, it's totally worth it. To avoid a tiring day trip, you can rent a villa in Milos.
2. Enjoy the sea at Agia Anna Beach
To continue enjoying the ocean in Naxos, Agia Anna Beach is another excellent option. Located in the charming town of Agia Anna, here you can enjoy beautiful white sands, waters with different shades of turquoise, and vegetation that gives it a unique rustic touch. Despite being a beach that is regularly frequented by tourists, it still has a peaceful yet vibrant atmosphere where you can relax and unwind. You can rent a villa near the beach so you can enjoy it whenever you want.
3. Get to know the impressive Temple of Apollo
Temples to the god Apollo are quite common in Greece, and if you book a villa holiday in Naxos you will also have the opportunity to visit one. Although it is really just a huge gateway to the real temple, which was never finished, it is still quite an imposing monument. It was built on the order of the tyrant Lygdamis during 530 BC and is composed of large marble parts with a height of 193 feet. From where it is located, you can get outstanding views of the sunset, so it is ideal to visit as the day is drawing to a close.
4. Have an exciting day at Aqua Fun Water Park
A visit to this fun water park is a must during your holiday in Naxos. Both children and adults can enjoy all the attractions, activities and facilities that this place has to offer. From daring water slides, swimming pools for all ages, free falls, and children's playgrounds, to sports complexes, bars, restaurants and cafés. Here you can spend the whole day enjoying the water in a different way. You can rent a family-friendly villa in Naxos and enjoy this trip even more with the ones you love the most.
5. Relax on the peaceful Kalados Beach
Now, if you are looking for a beach that is less crowded, and with much more space and privacy, there is Kalados Beach. With fine sands, lush vegetation surrounding the area, and calm tidal waters, here you can enjoy a more unspoilt style of beach. Although it's away from the main tourist areas, so your journey here will be a long one, it's certain to be worth it, as the natural scenery of the coastline will steal your heart.
6. Enjoy interesting art at Fish & Olive.
The art scene on the island is very much alive, and the fabulous gallery Fish & Olive is a sample of it. Opened in 2006 by Mrs. Niki Goulandris, here you will find a fantastic collection of objects such as ceramic handicrafts, handmade jewellery, paintings, sculptures, household items and more. The authors are from Naxos as well as from other parts of the world, so the variety of these exhibits is sure to catch your attention.
7. Take a relaxing stroll through the beautiful Port of Naxos
You cannot leave Naxos without visiting its beautiful port. This is the arrival place for ferries and other ships, so the scenery is always very similar, long lines of boats of all kinds here and there.

It has a quiet yet touristy atmosphere, with a variety of food and shopping outlets, as well as perfect ocean and sunset viewing points.
