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.


Donoussa Guide

The Greek island of Donoussa is the most northerly of the Small Eastern Cyclades group of islands and lies to the east of the island of Naxos and north of Amorgos. The island is quite small with a land area of around 13 sq. km and has a number of coves and hidden sandy beaches just waiting for visitors to explore. The island's residents, which amount to about 100, live mainly in the villages of Donoussa, Stavros, which is the largest and home to the island's port, Mersini, Haravgi and Kalotaritissa. A popular attraction on the island are the caves of "Spilia Tichou" with its spectacular stalactite formations, in the north west of the island, and "Fokospilia" on the island's east coast. According to mythology, Dionysus offered Ariadni a hiding place in Donoússa so that Thesseus could not find her. A settlement dating to the Geometric Period as well as remains of Bronze Age dwellings reveal the historical importance of the island.

Donoussa is connected by ferry to the port of Piraeus and to Naxos and Amorgos.
