    Agios Prokopios beach

    by Aggeliki Written Oct 29, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Agios Prokopios is a very big beach which is situated at the southwest coast of Naxos and is considered as one of the most beautiful of the island. The water is crystal clear and the sand is gold and due to its position protected from the north winds.

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Venetian castle is situated at the upper part of the town of Naxos. The castle is a medieavl city which includes a complex of houses and some towers. In some of them some venetians catholics still live. It s the most nice location to enjoy the sunset.

    Romantic evening walk

    by snorril Updated Aug 13, 2003

    Sunset view from inside the Agia Ioannis Theol��gos

    Favorite thing: A good idea for romantic couples is to take an evening walk from Naxos town up to Agia Ioannis Theológos, which is a small church located on a hill up from the town, close to the Chrysóstomos monastery. It takes less than an half an hour to walk up there from the ferry harbour.

    Fondest memory: The sunset view from the steps of this small church is magnificent plus you have a great view over the town. My girlfriend and I were the only people up there and it was a beautiful moment.

    Quiet village

    Moni, a village in Naxos

    Favorite thing: On our day driving around Naxos we came across a lot of villages. Naxos is much less touristic than many other Greek Islands and many villages are unaffected by tourism.

    Fondest memory: I was feeling rather tired after driving on these roads, which are not the best in the world. So, we stopped in this village, Koronida, right by the road under a big tree and took a nap for half an hour. The peace was incredible the only sounds that broke the silence were the birds singing and the occational goat.

    The Kouros of Naxos

    by snorril Written Jul 23, 2003

    The kouros of Melanes

    Favorite thing: There are at least two of these Kouros on Naxos. They are believed to been made in the 6th century BC and are thought to have represented gods or heroes.

    This one is near the town of Melanes, just lying there in a field. It was never finished but still makes a impression, especially its size.

    Sunset at the Apollo's Temple Gate

    Me at the Gate

    Fondest memory: One of the most beautiful sunsets in Greece is the one you can enjoy watching the sun disappear through the Gate of the Apollo Temple, in Naxos.
    Not as crowded as Oia's Santorini sunsets, and in a natural environment, a real must when in Naxos...
