“The Statues of Kouros are found in the village of Melanes. These ancient statues are 6 meters long and date back to the 7th century. Archaeologists believe that these statues used to hold a temple roof but where abandoned due to faults in the marble structure. The statues of Kouros still lay in the exact spot where they were initially discovered.”

“Agios Prokopios beach on Naxos island, located just 4km from the island’s port, ranks as the island’s most acclaimed, surpassing all others in terms of distinctions earned, both from Greece and abroad. It has been rated as Greece’s third best beach and among Europe’s top ten. An enormous beach with coarse sand, the setting here includes sand dunes and crystal-clear waters whose color alternates from blue to deep blue and turquoise. It operates as an organized beach with sun umbrellas and sunbeds set up along its greatest part, but also includes a quieter, less frequented segment at its western edge, where the chapel of the same name stands.

Located near the village of Sangri, the Temple of Demeter is a nice stop to make before hitting the beach.

“Portara, was once the entrance to temple of Apollo of 530 BC. This tall marble gate is the island’s emblem and main landmark. To reach Portara follow the path to the islet of Palatia. To witness a breathtaking sunset from Portara make sure to get there at least half an hour before the sun sets in order to secure a spot as it tends to get quite crowded. Come back again the next day during the sunrise hours to witness a stunning sunrise at Portara with no tourists in sight!”
