This is Naxos' favourite place to view the sunset. So everybody is walking up just after 6pm (October) to get ready for it. Below the rock is a small bar at the water to have a drink before or... more »
It’s good, the foods nice and the beds are nice
Though it gets crowded at sunset there was plenty of space to sit and enjoy the view and magnificent portara.
Wonderful historical place where you can still feel the holiness of the sacred ground devoted to Apollo. The arch is the symbol of Naxos island, and it gives opportunity for some wonderful pics of the island landscape, with the sun growing through the arch in the morning, or diving in the sea at the sunset. Very close to the city center, so it is definitely easy to go there by feet and enjoy the view.
Simplistic and have a great view
