Customer Travel Tip: Explore and go up to the mountains

Liked: I love the beaches - lots of them. It's not a package tourist destination so more traditional.

Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Make sure you head to the tiny village of Halki in the Zeus mountain range. It showed a real side of Greece and the people that live and work there, with a real sense of community and the hand made textiles were fabulous!

Liked: Naxos was a great place to explore, being the largest island in the Cyclades. We were able to rent a car & experience the island independently however there are multiple options available to take group tours and trips. Te beaches are fantastic and so remote however lots of places to eat and drink on a budget. The island is close to Paros & Ios and super easy to connect to between the islands. We loved Naxos and the amount of activities available to us at a low price rate.

Disliked: Nope, it was fantastic!

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Romantic getaway Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Rent a car or ATV! And book it at least a day in advance. They sell out, and it really is the best way to see more of the island.

Liked: There's so much to do, and it's a big island so if you just leave the main town you can easily find quiet beaches with hardly any people.

Disliked: No, it was amazing!!

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Locals enjoy when you ask about the culture or give effort to speak the language. They are very nice to tourists which you won't find on all of the islands.

Liked: The people around the island are very friendly to tourists. Naxos is a very large island but is based around relaxation rather than party.

Disliked: The nightlife scene was very lacking. Naxos is a good getaway for families and couples. Young 20 somethings looking for a party will not be happy here.
