Naxos is the biggest and most fertile island in the group, located right in the centre of it. It offers a host of choices to visitors about activities they can try, as well as other entertainment and relaxation options. The whitewashed Chora town welcomes travellers at its harbour. Portara, Naxos most popular landmark, lies on the neighbouring Palatia Islet; it is the marble gate of an unfinished ancient Greek temple dedicated to God Apollo. Also, the statue of Kouros of Melanes and the temple of Demeter are some of the most important monuments from ancient times.

As aforementioned, Naxos is a big island, resulting in an extended coastline. The most well-known beaches lie on its west side. Famous locations one has probably heard of before their initial visit to the island are Plaka, Agia Anna, Agios Prokopios and Maragas beach. Those location names are linked to long, pure white, sandy beaches with crystal clear waters and should be rated top on your bucket list.
They are regarded as some of the most beautiful beaches in the Aegean sea, so it is advisable to spend a considerable part of your holiday there.
