    Very pretty and short ride in the countryside of Naxos. Plenty of shade at the beginning which is very nice and especially the vision of these statues in this context is pretty impressive is worth a visit. Next, we visited and mangea Apiranthos (o platanes TB) and also visited Chakli before ending at the beach. Beautiful day

    Nice walk to get there with several possible departures. Is in a somewhat desolate moor landscape and suddenly between dry stone walls we find this abandoned broken kouros. Like most of the time interesting leaflet on the spot. Worth a detour.

    Such a surprise to have this magnificent marble carving of a Kouros all to ourselves.

    This Kouros is something really breathtaking! There are only a few signs to get there, but if you're curious look for them on the road near Apollonas. This colossal unfinished statue represents the Greek god Dyonisium. If you're in Apollonas take some time to visit it, it's worth it!

    Impressive 10 metre long statue carved from adjacent quarry and then abandoned. Very short walk from the main road.

Where to stay in Naxos

As with most island destinations, rooms in Naxos tend to cost more the closer you get to the sea. Beach hotels and seaside apartments come at a steep price, but they offer spacious rooms and modern amenities just minutes from the island's finest beaches. Stay in Naxos Town for quick access to the best shopping and dining options, or choose one of the island's smaller settlements if you prefer a quieter base. Village inns provide simply furnished rooms and no frills, but they also charge less than the resort hotels.
