About Naxos Tours


One way of exploring Naxos is by car and casually driving around; while this allows for a surely comfortable acquaintance with the landscapes and villages of the island, it omits all places not car-convenient, along with the deeper understanding of the Naxian culture and heritage.

We invite you to participate in the "Naxos castle walking tour & sunset at Portara" day tour, where you will experience the Venetian and ancient Greek heritage of Naxos. With the company of a professional guide you will visit two of the most emblematic monuments, the Naxos Kastro (Castle) and Portara, the remains of Apollo’s Temple.

Shifting the focus from the inviting mainland, it is high time we talked about the most sought after feature of Naxos; its unparalleled azure waters and seascapes. Experiencing them in the conventional way of beach visiting and sunbathing is a key ingredient of any summer vacation. Unfortunately, this approach has limitations and excludes a plethora of untouched, secluded seashores, sublime marine vistas and awe-inspiring sea caves.

Here, we assembled the top-tier single day cruises of Naxos, along with an extensive variety of full-day boat cruises and excursions to nearby Cycladic destinations.

Exploring the beautiful south coasts of Naxos is easy and enjoyable when aboard the "Boat Cruise at the South-Eastern Coast" (From Panermos) or the "South Naxos Full Day Cruise" (from Agia Anna).

With a variety of luxurious catamaran vessels ready to host you and your friends for a whole day, rest assured that you will be pampered and taken to some of the most memorable Naxian shores.

Depending on the day-tour of your choice, you can either spend your time diving, snorkeling and swimming near Naxos or additionally do so at selected shores of the Small Cyclades nearby.
