Do & See

Whether it is beach relaxation, active pursuits, ancient ruins, or even museums that you're looking for — Naxos has it all. Sites of particular interest include the gate-shaped Portara, Venetian Kastro, the beautiful hiking trails inland (towards the village of Halki, containing the historic Vallindras citrus distillery), and the island's sparse (yet present) archaeological sites.
