DESTINATIONS greece naxos Do & See Hiking


Naxos is a hikers' paradise — try the route leading towards the Tragea, an elevated land area in the heart of the island dominated by olive groves. Some of the best stops for a hiking itinerary are the scenic settlements of Halki with its attractive town square, Aperathou (a village overlooking the island's southeastern coast), and the mountainside village of Koronos.

Do & See

Whether it is beach relaxation, active pursuits, ancient ruins, or even museums that you're looking for — Naxos has it all. Sites of particular interest include the gate-shaped Portara, Venetian Kastro, the beautiful hiking trails inland (towards the village of Halki, containing the historic Vallindras citrus distillery), and the island's sparse (yet present) archaeological sites.
