One day in Naxos may not be enough to fully experience everything the island has to offer, but you can still have a fulfilling and immersive experience. We recommend booking a hotel in Chora or Agios Georgios for easy access to transportation and nightlife. For adventurous travellers, a day tour of the island, either private or in a group, is a great way to visit both the town and the mountains in just one day.
For those who prefer a more laid-back experience, spending the day swimming and sunbathing on the beaches along the west coast is a perfect option. In the evening, take some time to explore Naxos Castle, visit the Archaeological Museum, and watch the sunset at Portara, the temple of Apollo. For dinner and nightlife, there are many excellent choices along the coastal street.
