The boat trip from Mykonos to Naxos varies from 40 to 160 minutes, depending on the type of boat you'll choose to travel with. Since Naxos is the biggest island in the Cyclades, there are many thing to see and do. My visitors usually stay from 4-7 days. If you plan to see the whole island, you'll need a car. If you choose to visit certain attractions (villages and beaches), there are frequent bus services, as well as organized bus tours from Naxos Town (Hora). In Naxos Town, you won't need a car - everything is within walking distance (Old Town, Venetian Castle, Apollo's Gate or "Portara", beach, restaurants, bars, shops) and you can visit the Archaeological Museum which is at the top of the Castle. Other villages you can visit : on a plateau, Sangri (12 km) where Demeter's Temple (6th century BC)is situated, Halki, Filoti, Apeiranthos (the Marble Village, 3 museums - 32 km), all mountain villages. Near Naxos Town are Eggares, Glinado, Vivlos villages. If you are into hiking or trekking, there are many routes you can choose and you will see many villages on your way. As for Naxos beaches, St. George beach (sandy with shallow, warm waters and wind surfing facilities) is in Naxos Town. A bus (or car) is needed for St. Prokopis, Ag. Anna, Plaka, Orkos, Mikri Vigla beaches. They are all sandy. If you are into nudism, Maragas beach, between Ag. Anna and Plaka beaches. There are many more beaches, but you'll need a car. I hope I've covered everything. Have a nice trip and a beautiful stay on the island.
