Why rent a car in Naxos

Naxos is one of those islands where a car is almost mandatory. Renting a vehicle in Naxos is strongly recommended and will allow you to discover the island at your own rhythm; plus, it will take you to places that are not accessible by public transportation. Imagine visiting a more remote beach, a traditional village on the mainland, a restaurant away from the tourist zone, and reaching awe-inspiring archaeological sites and viewpoints.
Naxos is the largest island of the Cyclades and has the highest mountain, Zas. That means that, although the main touristic zone expands on the west side of the island, villages, beaches, archaeological sites, churches, and towers are scattered all over the island at big distances.
On the other hand, public transportation in Naxos (KTEL Bus) mainly operates on the tourist west side by connecting Naxos Town to the most renowned beaches (Agios Georgios, Agia Anna, Agios Prokopios, Plaka, and Mikri Vigla). Bus schedules connecting some villages with Naxos Town once or twice a day are mainly addressed to locals who want to visit the Town for everyday purposes.

Driving in Naxos

Driving in Naxos is not considered very complicated compared to other islands. The biggest part of the island has a safe road network connecting every village and beach. Of course, you may encounter a few meters of unpaved road that might need extra driving attention on some remote beaches like Little paradise and Panermos . Since the island is mountainous, there are many winding roads (namely the road from Apiranthos to Moutsouna bay on the eastern side of Naxos) where you need to be very careful. You might notice a lack of road signs; using GPS is always helpful. Furthermore, take into consideration that during the night there is hardly any street lighting. Last but not least, be aware of animals (cows, sheep, goats) that might block your way. Animals are everywhere on the mainland, so drive slowly and have your cameras loaded to capture the only traffic jam!

Gas stations in Naxos

Upon receiving your vehicle, make sure to check the fuel tank and verify whether it uses Diesel or Unleaded. When you return the car, you will be asked to deliver it with a full fuel tank. There are more than 20 gas stations around the island (i.e. Shell, Avin, Eko, Aegean, and others). Most of them are located around Chora, but some lie on the mainland, too (Halki, Sangri, Filoti, and more).

Parking in Naxos

Cars are not allowed inside the villages and Chora's old town. There are public parking lots outside almost every village (Halki, Filoti, Apiranthos) where you can park your car for free during your visit. Also, most hotels boast a parking area unless you are staying in Chora. Remember to confirm this when booking your hotel. Parking at the beaches will not be an issue. There are semi-organized places for free very close to the beach where you can leave your car.

Naxos with a car rental

Naxos offers so many different places to see and discover. You can find them in our section of things to do , highlights , and on our blog . You can find a shortlist of routes and suggestions that can be combined below:

Aliko - Axiotissa restaurant

The region of Aliko is a strong pole of attraction that will draw your attention. It consists of a cedar forest with some small sand dunes, numerous secluded creeks with clear waters, an abandoned hotel that has turned into an open gallery for street artists, a very photogenic white chapel by the sea called Agios Georgios, and the FBI food track - a canteen serving homemade ice cream, delicious fast food with a twist and cocktails. When your day by the beach is over, head to the famous “ Axiotissa ” restaurant to savor a dinner that you will remember for a lifetime! The restaurant is located on the side of the central country road to Chora in the region of Kastraki and boasts a parking lot. Due to its fame and delicious dishes, it is recommended to make a reservation in advance.
The road to Aliko is very easy-going, and parking will not be a problem, either. You can leave your car at the end of the road and discover the region on foot.

Moutsouna - Panermos

Moutsouna and Panermos are two of the most charming places in Naxos. They are located on the eastern coastal side of the island, so prepare yourselves for some driving! From Apiranthos village, you will have to descend the mountain to reach the west coast and the quaint fishing village of Moutsouna. The 11 km distance is a winding road, so you need to drive very carefully. The views are rewarding, though! Moutsouna is famous for its seaside fish taverns. The restaurant owners are fishermen themselves and serve their catch of the day! From Moutsouna, you take the main coastal road southwards for 16 km and reach the secluded bay of Panermos, a true hidden gem! The road is easy but beware that the last few meters remain unpaved yet in good condition. There is a parking lot that works by tip where you can leave your car. In Panermos there is only one canteen for the essentials and you should not leave without taking the boat tour to Rina sea cave.

Halki - Filoti - Apiranthos

Three of the most popular mainland destinations that can be easily approached by car are the villages of Halki, Filoti, and Apiranthos. Each of the three traditional settlements has its own distinctive features, but all of them are picturesque and will introduce you to a different Naxian lifestyle. You can take the Naxos/Halkiou or Naxos/Apiranthou main road. Both are in very good condition. First, you reach the charming village of Halki. You can leave your car at the public parking near the school and begin your stroll around the place. Visit the byzantine church of Agios Georgios Diasoritis and eat the most delicious patisserie on the island at Dolce Vita. Less than 3 km away lies Filoti village. You leave your car at the public parking area on your left hand before entering the settlement and continue on foot. You will encounter the main square with a centuries-old Plane tree, Panagia Filotitissa church, and the Venetian Barozzi tower. Just 7.5 km away by car is the village of Apiranthos, considered by many as an emblematic historical and cultural place on the island. This village was built on a hillside far away from the sea to be protected from the pirates. It boasts many stone mansions, churches, and museums. It is also famous for its meat taverns and a local dish called rosto. There is a parking area before entering the village where you can leave your vehicle for free.

Demeter Temple - Bazeos tower - Agiasos beach - Little paradise beach

Apart from the marvelous beaches, Naxos is also home to noteworthy archaeological sites that can only be reached by car. The Demeter Temple and Bazeos Tower are two of them. The first is a magnificent archaic structure built with Naxian white marble and dedicated to the Goddess of fertility, Demeter. The temple is located in the area of Sangri. You will have to leave the car in the parking area and continue on foot for some meters. Bazeos Tower is a Venetian building and one of the most prominent sights in Naxos. It mainly hosts cultural events and exhibitions. It is situated on the main road that connects the Chora with the mountainous villages of Halki and Filoti and boasts a large parking space just opposite the street. If you want to continue your day with a swim, Agiassos beach is not very far from there. If you are seeking an even more secluded beach, when you reach Agiassos beach, continue driving. A few meters later, the asphalt road stops. Drive further on and, on your left hand, you will see some beautiful turquoise waters and a tiny beach. Welcome to Little Paradise!

Panagia Drosianni - Vasilarakiou Tavern

A short day trip is to Panagia Drosianni church, the oldest Christian church of Naxos, with a peculiar architectural design and significant frescoes. Take the Halkiou/Keramotis main road and you will see it on your right. The parking is not very well organized, so you will have to leave your car on the side of the road. After visiting the church, since you are in the region, you can drive to Kinidaros village (a 10-minute drive) and eat the most delicious meat on the island at Vasilarakiou meat tavern!

Car to Potamia for hiking

Hiking in the villages of Ano Potamia, Mesi Potamia, and Kato Potamia is the upcoming trend in Naxos. You can reach the Potamia villages exclusively by car since no convenient bus routes serve the area. Those three neighboring villages are situated in the greenest valleys of the island next to a riverside. To reach Potamia, you can take the Naxos - Potamia main road. We suggest you park your car at the Pigi restaurant in Ano Potamia and start your promenade in the village. You will come across watermills, towers, and gardens with vegetables, fruits, and flowers. Potamia is only 9 km away from Chora.

Car to Apollonas

Apollonas is a quiet seaside village that became very famous due to the impressive 10.5 m long, unfinished Kouros statue that was found laying there for centuries. The road to Apollonas is easy and the distance from Chora is around 36 km. Apart from the statue, a lovely sandy beach and a few taverns and shops lie around.
