EL ArtGallery (Halki)

A Naxian local, who had spent a good three decades living abroad in New York, has returned home only to start this exquisite gallery-cum-art store, packed with artisan items inspired by the verdant island. Olive tree motives dominate the art work: from home decor pieces to jewellery.


The place to go for some of the best shopping on Naxos is, of course, the island's Hora. Items typical of Naxos are olive-derived products, local sweets and candy, organic foods such as cheeses and herbs, wines, and "kitron" (citrus liquor). When it comes to souvenirs, explore the variety of Naxian handicrafts: from hand-woven fabrics to ceramic pieces to hand-made artisan jewellery. The larger villages of Halki, Apiranthos, and Filoti offer further shopping opportunities. For everyday needs, several vendors' stalls and mini-markets are usually in operation on and around the large beaches.
