Where in Naxos can you view the best sunset? And which beach

Hi

Is the sunset in Naxos stunning like it is in Santorini?

Also, where are nicest beaches with white sand or pebbles?

Many thanks in advance!

In Naxos town:

Portara, part of the temple of Apollo on the island connected by the breakwater. You'll see coming into port by ferry.

Up in the Kastro somewhere if you can find a reasonably clear view.

Down Ag. Georgios beach at the beach bar/tavernas like the Flisvos or Paradise.

The beaches run for around 8 miles from Ag.Prokopios to Pyrgaki, coarse sand to fine sand take you pick.

It is traditional when staying at Naxos town or at George beach stroll the waterfront promenade and up to the Portera for sunset and then off to a taverna for dinner. The whole Naxos town has a wonderful sunset view.

Here are our images of Naxos town. See the sunsets.

I have also seen some great sun-set pictures taken from outside hotell Grotta. It brings you a little higher. It is also a popular sport taking a picture at the Portara, when a person in the foreground is "holding the sun in his hand".

Getting bored waiting for sunsets (or ferries ,restaurant bills etc.) shows you are not in synch with where you are . This needs attention.

I don't agree at all we stayed for a few days near the black beach and took the bus to fira for the day when I said I got bored waiting for the sunset I was bored of fira and the crowds as for waiting for ferries no that doesn't bore me
