Naxos, the largest of the Greek Cyclades islands, lies in the centre of the Aegean Sea. Naxos is a unique island that has escaped mass tourism, despite its beauty and long history. Evidence shows that man has lived on Naxos since the 4th millennium B.C.
Naxos is home to stunning scenery, from the beautiful white beaches and sand dunes covered in cedar trees, to the impressive mountains and fertile valleys further inland.
The main town of Naxos is Hora (also known as Naxos town), in the north of the island, which offers all the modern amenities you would expect from a sizeable town. Hora is home to the Ferry Port of Naxos, which is surrounded by seafront cafés and bars from which you can enjoy the view out to sea.
Crete, the southernmost of the Greek islands, is popular with tourists from across the globe for its rugged mountainous scenery inland, its beautiful coastal towns and beaches, and typical Greek culture.
Visitors are drawn to Crete year-round. Because of its southerly position Crete benefits from a warm, temperate climate - you can comfortably lay on Crete's beaches and sunbathe from April until October!
