The mountain of Zeus and the beaches of Naxos
Speaking of the mountainous side of the island, you should not miss Zas’ “Mountain of Zeus”. It was named after the father of the gods of antiquity. According to mythology, Zeus was born in a mountain cave. Above all, Naxos is worth a visit even for its stunning beaches. Cosmic or desolate, inaccessible or not, the beaches of the island with golden soft sand and blue water will compensate you. Indicatively, we mention Saint George, St. Anna, Plaka, Kastraki and Little Vigla.
