Travel Tips for Naxos - Chora (town of)


by breughel

"Naxos in 1977, before tourism."

When on an evening of May 1977, we disembarked, after ten hours on the sea, we were only a dozen tourists on the ferry boat. The other tourists had left in Paros where tourism had developed on the contrary of Naxos.
In those happy years there were no high speed boats and, of course, no airport in Naxos.

There were only a few hotels in Naxos, two taxis (we catched one to drive us to Pyrgaki at 20 Km), a few busses, less than 30 cars or pickups and few asphalted roads but many donkeys.

No organized beaches with amenities like I saw here from tips.
The economy of this island was turning around potatoes! People were rather wealthy because they had bought their own ferry boat called (of course) "NAXOS".

At Pyrgaki beach we were the only tourists so that we had the long beach for us alone.

"Tourism started in 1980."

We came back in summer 1980. The beach of Pyrgaki was visited by tourists coming by bus from the capital Chora. A small restaurant (a shack in fact) had even opened at the beach.

For us it was the end of our wild forgotten Greek island.

""Naxos" ferry boat."

The "Naxos" ferry boat still exists; not the one of 1977 but a new one from the Bleu Star Ferries Fleet with a max. speed of 25 knots.
I think ours never exceeded 12 knots!
