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.

  • Parking a problem with the big buses by the narrow road. Quite a bit of a walk on uneven rocky path. No shade. All open to the sun and heat. Free to view.  more »
  • We hiked to this temple area from the nearby village of Ano Sangri but it is very easy accessible by car. A work in progress that appears to have come to a halt. Explanation boards weathered and unrea...  more »
  • A little off the beaten hire car track but we thought it might have been worth the deviation. Unfortunately it is not. As others have mentioned, while the ruin itself is quite impressive, all of the s...  more »

  • We took the bus and went there by walking many miles in heat. Worth it
  • This ancient Greek temple / early Christian basilica is really interesting. It is located on top of a high hill, so it watches all over down the valley. Of the original temple only a few pieces are still up, most of them are on the ground nearby. A small part of the temple has been rebuilt in order to see how it would have looked like, but that's an hard work because of the Christian basilica built on it. There are a couple information points, but they are too damaged to be legible.
  • The temple is located in a lovely surrounding. The area is not very large but still impressive. And please don't forget to visit the small museum! Its building received a design award
  • Nice spot to visit. Free entry. Closed on Mondays. Some steps to climb but not exhausting.
  • After seeing the Acropolis, this is pretty underwhelming. Nice drive to see the Naxos countryside away from the beaches.
