On such a large island as Naxos, with so many beaches and such remarkable attractions, tours are of special interest.
The basic excursion organized by the travel agencies is the Chora-Engares-Apollonas route, following the northwest road of the island.
At the same time, travel agencies organize day trips to the southwest beaches of Naxos (Agia Anna, Alikos, Kalantos) and other Cycladic islands: Iraklia-Koufonisia, Delos-Mykonos, Santorini.
If you have your own means of transport, you can organize your own tour, following the main roads of the island:
