Sailing Holidays in Naxos, Cyclades

Sailing Holidays in Naxos

Naxos is the biggest and the greenest island in Cyclades with impressively high mountains, fertile valleys, lush green gorges, stunning seascapes and traditional villages perched high on mountain tops, where the inhabitants still wear their traditional dress and live off the fruits of the land! The rich aquifer of Naxos offers drinking water to wells and streams of the island.

The fertile land produces citrus fruits, olives, vegetables, potatoes —a Naxos special- and amazing wine. Livestock-farming and the apiculture are particularly developed and offer exceptional quality meats, milk, cheeses and thyme honey. From geological aspect the subsoil presents great interest because of the presence of emery, of marble and granite that are exploitable products.

The rocks constitute solidly foundations and make the island stable against earthquakes. Naxos is full of beautiful old churches, monasteries and Venetian castles coexisting harmoniously with Cycladic cubic houses.
