Loved it! Make sure when you get there after the beach to calculate some time not to miss the sunset due to traffic. The first time we almost missed it. During August Naxos is very crowded... We were lucky enough to enjoy a full moon...More

It's a very nice short walk along the boardwalk ( watch the waves they can come right over the street when fools cause wakes going too fast in and out). The ancient ruin of a temple which looks to have been partially restored then left...More

I thought it was cheesy to go see the sunset here, along with dozens of tourists, but I was glad I did. The sunset from the Portara was magical. I ended up going twice to see the sunset. Find a spot off a path, a...More
