- You can find here our post for the best things to do on Naxos island!
- The best time to visit Naxos Island is from May until early October. The high season, of course, is July and August, which make September (my favourite month) and June the best months.
- Naxos is a large island, and you might need to rent a car. But if you want to avoid this extra cost, Naxos has a reasonably good Bus Network (KTEL) (More information here, but the page is only in Greek!). The headquarters are located just a few metres from the main port, where you can pick up a copy of the daily scheduled timetable of service.
- Naxos has many restaurants and great bars and nightlife!

Which are the best areas to stay in Naxos island?
Naxos is a large island with many small villages and a main town.
Therefore, there are many different places to stay in the island.
But, we recommend the below places to stay in Naxos as they have proximity to the main town and to some fantastic beaches!
The first and obvious choice is Chora, which is the main town on Naxos. It has everything!
Plenty of restaurants and cafes, little shops for souvenirs, amazing bars with magnificent views.
And all these are inside picturesque alleys and whitewashed houses!
Here begin all the buses to the whole island and note that Naxos one of the best bus networks in the Cyclades in case that you want to avoid renting a car!
This area is like an extension of Chora town, very close toall the hustle and bustle and here there is a wonderuful, sandy and blue flag beach!
Agios Prokopios – Agia Anna – Plaka
These three beaches are one next to others, and there are really beautiful!
The 1st one is Agios Prokopios, which is located between 4 lakes with a national park behind and it is considered one of the best beaches in Greece!
Then, it is Agia Anna with plenty of tavernas, bars and coffee shops.
Plaka is quieter with beach bars and many windsurfing activities.
All three beaches are pretty close to Chora, but you will need a car or take the bus service. Note that these places do not have a village feel, but the gorgeous beaches offset this!
Now, let’s see the best hotels, apartments, studios and villas on Naxos Island!
