What to wear  (3 Answers)

When traveling and hiking through Hawaii we typically wear running shorts and tank tops. What do you recommend we wear walking/ hiking through Naxos? I have hear we can leave the heavy boots at home. Do we need regular running shoes? Would we look like complete american tourists if I wore running shorts and a loose tank? I realize this is a girl question:) but if I own the stuff to blend in I would rather take it!

Naxos Star Charter Boat from Mykonos to Naxos  (2 Answers)

Does anyone know if the Naxos Star is still offering a ferry service this year on a Friday from Mykonos to Paros and Naxos? In previous years I have flown to Mykonos airport and transferred to Naxos using the Naxos Star ( as they also used to ferry Kosmar passengers on a Friday around 4pm), but I don't know if they are still offering such a service this year. Alternatively if someone knows how to get in touch with them, it would be helpful.

I'm arriving on Sunday 11th May but there's only one ferry.  (5 Answers)

Hi. I'm arriving Mykonos this Sunday at 1.20pm (if Easyjet have no delays) and plan to get the ferry across to Naxos that same day. There seems to be only 1 ferry each day which surprised me and the boat is at 2.30pm. I tried all the previously recommended websites and there really does seem to be just the 1 boat each day fromMykonos to Naxos. Does anyone living on Naxos know if that's because not all ferries are published in the schedules? I'm worried about what to do if I miss that boat as even if the flight is on time an hour isn't long for us to collect our bags and get down to the port to find and buy tickets. Are there any later boats or a roundabout way to get to Naxos if we miss that one (without returning to Athens..)

A little more detail on Ag. Prokopios accomodation.  (4 Answers)

Hi there,

I am looking for a double room to spend 5 days or so in the summer. I have been to Naxos before and remember Ag. Prokopios was a particularly long beach, one end of which was suprisingly innaccesable (and where clothing was optional lol) and the other end was near Ag. Anna, had a bus / taxi area and a taverna. In particular, there was a bar called 'odyssea' and I stayed in a room owned by the owners of that bar, two German women. I have since lost their details and so I am looking for hotels / rooms in that same area, as close to the beach / bus / taxi etc stop as possible. I would like a range of options as I have not yet decided ether to go cheap, or expensive,

Thanks for your help

Hikes & Accommodation in the interior part of Island  (1 Answer)

Hello fellow travellers - Wondering what hikes are good in the interior part of Naxos (Moni, Halki, Apieranthos) & if anyone can recommend accommodation in the small villages.

To tour the interior is it best to take a bus, rent a car, take a taxi (are there taxis?) or rent a bicycle.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Please help - is Naxos for me?  (3 Answers)

I'm planning a holiday to Greece next year for myself and my best friend. It's our first 'girly holiday' abroad but we've opted out of the typical Magaluuf/Kavos hangover type trip which interests neither of us. My friends never been to Greece but I love the country and have previously visited many islands on family holidays such as Corfu, Skiathos, Kefalonia and Crete. In May we visited Thassos (and stayed in the main town) and I absoloutely loved it - has to be my best ever holiday.
We're not sure which island to visit next year and want to make the right choice. I've always wanted to go to Naxos but am worried whether there will be enough to do and whether it will give my friend a true first impression of tradtional Greece ( which I have told her of so many times!) We'd like there to be enough nightlife so that if we wanted to go for drinks after a meal we could, but are also happy to discover the traditional Greek tavernas (along with the young and charming Greek waiters! - of which I've also told her of many a time!)
If anyone has visited Naxos previously I'd love to know whether you think Naxos would be a good idea for our holiday (We'll be eighteen). Also if anyone has any other suggestions I'd love to know. We've also wondered about going back to Thassos.
Thank-you, Amy x x x
p.s. How does Naxos compare with other islands in terms of money for eating out? Eg, we found Corfu alot more expensive than the island of Thassos and I've also read that Skiathos compares quite expensively.
