Naxos: Greece's Most Popular Undiscovered Island

Portara of NaxosNaxos would love to have the high-class tourism and the big bucks that come with it like their neighbor Mykonos, but they have their fields and their fruit and olive trees and their fishing and are content to be the kind of place that is attractive not only to those seeking sunlight, bars and bikinis, but also those looking for a little Greek culture to go along with it. Naxos is the greenest island in the Cyclades with impressively high mountains and fertile valleys. There are beaches that are among the most beautiful in Greece, a few minutes drive from villages where they still wear traditional dress, weave on old looms and live off the fruit of the land. Naxos is an island of beautiful old churches, monasteries and Venetian castles and homes.  Naxos has been continuously inhabited since the 4th Milennium BC and excavations around the island bring to light ancient artifacts and buildings almost daily.  So if Mykonos-style tourism makes its way to Naxos and it becomes the darling of the Aegean jet-set crowd, hey that's great, (I suppose). But in the meantime Naxos is happy with their reputation as a big beautiful island, rich in agriculture, tradition, some of the finest beaches in the Cyclades, and an interior waiting to be discovered.  I hope you enjoy using my Naxos site.
