Naxos Continued

sunny 32 °C

We hired a car to get around as the villa was pretty removed from it all. It gave us the chance to explore different beaches and see lots more of Naxos. We even spent one day driving almost 6 hours around the northern side and rest of the island (by accident), as Naim and Adrian were told it would only take a couple hours to see the whole island, and to expect the north to be much more quiet. Yes, I think we would all agree that the north was in fact desolate, spread out, and not worth it! :) We would also suggest skipping the Kouros and the village of Apollon. However, for all those insect-lovers, you can see some interesting stuff, including huge cicadas if you've never seen one before! Cara was amazed!

However, the beaches were gorgeous. We spent time at two in particular, Agia Anna and Agios Prokopios. Agia Anna's new claim to fame is that our son took his first steps on their sand and splashed in their water!


The next evening, we came upon Agios Prokopios, had a lovely dinner and then enjoyed the sunset.

We spent the following day at their beach for a few hours, had lunch on the beach. Zavian hung out in his sun tent.

Naxos beaches are great for families, have lots of facilities and easy parking. Be sure to rent a beach chair with an umbrella though! Naim is still peeling almost 2 weeks later!
