Naxos Guide

The Greek island of Naxos is part of the Cyclades group of islands that lie in the Aegean Sea. Naxos City, or Chora, is the island's largest town and capital and is built amphitheatrically on the island's west coast. It is also home to one of the biggest ports in the Aegean Sea. The town is popular with tourists and as a result there are many bars, restaurants and cafes to cater for them. The small island of Palatia, which extends from the mainland of Naxos, is the town's emblem. Located on the small island is Portara, which is a monument resembling a door standing alone, without any walls attached to either side. A visit to Portara is advisable, especially after your swim, whilst the sun is setting.

The island is also well known for its food and for producing the famous Naxian potatoes, wine, Kitron liquor productions and the popular cheese called Graviera. There are many restaurants located throughout the island serving local produce to the many tourists who visit.

From the island's port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.


Thirasia Guide

The Greek island of Thirasia is a small island that is located to the west of the island of Santorini in the Cyclades group of islands. It has a population of around 250 people and are mainly employed in agriculture. The small island's cliffs are less steep than those found on Santorini but ascending its 250 steps from the port can still be quite a challenge especially during the summer when temperatures can be very high. Stunning views from the island include the caldera and the sunsets and sunrises. The island's only beach is full of pebbles and pumice and is located next to the small harbour. The island's only track will lead you to the Church of Agia Irini, which is said to have given Santorini its name (Santa Irini - Santorini).
