Naxos

Naxos is a smaller Island inbetween Mykonos and Santorini.  If you want to take the boat from Mykonos to Santorini, it stops in Naxos.  I decided to take advantage and stay here for the night.  This is a quiet island that has a lot less toursits.  I only stayed for one night and it was a nice change of pace, but if you are crunched for time, I think you could skip it and go directly to Santorini or Mykonos depending on the direction you're going. 

The Activities

THE BEACH

Naxos has beautiful beaches that you can enjoy right from your hotel, depending on where you stay.  This is an island where you can really relax.  You can also rent ATV's to visit beaches around the island.  

The Food

NOSTIMON HELLAS

This was a pretty good restaurant in town.  The menu was a little hit or miss, so if you find another place that you think is better, this place isn't a must. 

The Lodging

NISSAKI BEACH HOTEL

This hotel is a short walk from the port dock and it's directly on a beautiful beach.  The hotel staff is very nice and friendly.  The beach bar has amazing fruity drinks.  They make everything with real fresh fruit instead of sweeteners and they are amzing.  Try the strawberry or the honeydew melon.  A great little gem and if you're in Naxos, you should stay here!
