Where to stay in Naxos!

Here is a complete list of the best hotels in Naxos!

You will find the best places where you can book a hotel depending on your needs.

Also, we recommend different hotels for luxurious and budget holidays or family or even honeymooners!

Nowadays, the location of the hotels has become even more critical, as many are looking for a more exclusive and remote location. So, at the end of the post, you will find a detailed map with all the recommended hotels, so you will get an idea of where all these beautiful accommodations are located.


  • Personally, I book all my hotels through Booking.com, as nowadays it includes many apartments, just like Airbnb, and it’s easier and more reliable.
  • Best Hotel in Naxos: Nissaki Beach Hotel – Chora
  • Best Value hotel for money in Naxos: The Saint Vlassis
  • If you go to Naxos by ferry, I always use Ferryscanner to book the ferry tickets! They have done a fantastic job, and it is very user-friendly. Also, if you are thinking of island hopping, this is the best platform that I have seen!
  • Alternatively, you can fly to the Naxos airport through Athens.  You can also book a trusted local driver to pick you up from the airport and introduce you to the destination! You will get all your questions answered before or during the trip using Welcome Pickups, a fantastic Greek startup. More information here!
  • 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. Of course, the high season is July and August, which makes September (my favourite month) and June the best months to visit.
  • 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!). 
  • 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 central town.

Therefore, there are many different places to stay on the island.

However, we recommend the below places to stay in Naxos as they are close to the main town and some fantastic beaches!

Chora town

The first and obvious choice is Chora, which is the main town on Naxos. It has everything!

There are plenty of restaurants and cafes, little shops for souvenirs, and 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 is one of the best bus networks in the Cyclades if you want to avoid renting a car!

Agios Georgios

This area is like an extension of Chora town, very close to all the hustle and bustle. Here, there is a beautiful, sandy, blue-flag beach!

Agios Prokopios – Agia Anna – Plaka

These three beaches are one next to the others and are really beautiful!

The first one is Agios Prokopios, which is located between four lakes and a national park behind. It is considered one of the best beaches in Greece!

Then, there is Agia Anna, which has 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!
