Chora of Naxos
Chora of Naxos


The biggest island of the Cyclades and at the same time my favorite because it offers something for all and every taste. Dreamlike beaches, cultural places of interest, remont mountain villages and in the Chora there is always a lot going on there.

How to approach Naxos

Naxos is daily accessible by plane from Athens or several times daily with ferries and speedboats from Piraeus, Mykonos or Santorini. On the island there is a good offer of rental cars. For beach holidays suffices a motorbike, for mountain excursions a car is highly recommended. Naxos disposes of a quite good bus system. Best of all you ask about departure times at the bus station of the Chora towards of the port.


On Naxos I always stay with "my" Greek family at  Blue Harmony Apartments on Plaka Beach. Manolis, Kleoniki and their daughter Kalliopi are wonderful and attentive hosts. The tastfully furnished and sparkling clean studios and apartments are quiet and close to restaurants and shopping possibilities. There is a delicious breakfast on the roofed veranda or on the balcony and the Plaka Beach with its azure and clear water is also only a few meters away. Only few steps away from Blue Harmony there is a bus station with connection to the Chora every half hour.
