You can check Greek ferry timetables here:

http://www.ferries.gr/booking/

There is at least one daily ferry now, so there will certainly be daily ferries in May (and possibly more than one ferry per day).

Ferry companies listed on the site above are Blue Star

and Nel

If you use the first link I gave to make a 'dummy' booking for e.g. a date in the next week, you will see exactly how long it takes for each journey. You'll be given departure and arrival times.

There are daily ferries from Piraeus > Paros > Naxos > Santorini all year, it's a regular ferry route.

Travel Tips for Naxos Island

Portara, the Temple of Apollo

by Aggeliki

Portara is called the uncompleted Temple of Apollo which is situated on a very small island Palatia which is connected with Naxos island by a narrow road. Portara has 6 m. height and 3,5 m. Archaeologists believe that the building of the temple had stop when war broke out between Naxos and Samos and it remained unfinished.

Naxos

by tini58de

The architecture of Naxos is distinct from that of any other Cycladic isle. You'll notice immediately the fortified Venetian towers called "piryi" that you can find along the hillsides. Also specific to Naxos is the remarkable number of small Byzantine chapels, many of which contain exceptional frescoes dating from the 9th to the 13th centuries. The Kastro of Hora is one of the finest medieval fortified towns in the Cyclades, and a delight to explore.

Naxos is very well connected to other islands by ferry, so you shouldn't have any trouble getting here at most times of year. Even the big ships stop here. It's possible to catch a bus to a village that interests you and then explore it on foot; but do keep in mind that island buses are reliable but infrequent (at least when I last visited)! A bike may be all the transport you need to the island's beaches - but be careful not to be run over by some crazy drivers!!!

Saint George beach, right in town

by oriettaIT

Saint George is the town beach of Naxos. It lay right outside the East side of the Chora and it is very long, sandy and with clear enaugh shallow water. The further you go from the Chora the wider and cleaner is the beach.
There are beach rentals (7 euros two sunbed and umbrella in 2008) and beach bars where you can have a snack, a drink or a delicious Horiatiky (greek salad).
There are free showers to wash off the salt and the sand from your body. The best spot for me was by the Trata bar. Their pergola was the best to cool off with a Frappe or to have lunch and, as soon as the sunset aproach, they pull out chairs and little tables on the beach and you can sit and sip your drink watching the sun go down in the water.

Don't over pack

by ncoutroulis

This happens to me everytime I go away. I always pack too much. And I did it again this time. I learned, though...Here's all you need for Naxos, or any Greek Island for that matter. A bathing suit, a tank top or two, a pair of shorts, and sandals. That's it. (at least for the guys)

CarNet

by ncoutroulis

Christos owns this car rental place. He's a great guy, and he'll give you a good deal. You don't need anything more than the small Fiat or Hyundai's that he has. If you want something larger, or a 4x4, he can get that as well. He'll also rent you a car without an international license, but it's always easier if you have one.
Tell him Niko from NY sent you.
