Getting to Naxos Airport

Flights to Naxos Airport are available from Montreal or Toronto, with most flights having at least two stops. Air carriers include Air Transat, Aegean Airlines, Olympic Air and Sky Express. Codesharing, where you buy an air ticket on one carrier but fly one or more segments on partner airlines, is common with these carriers. WestJet and EasyJet also participate. The Skyscanner flight screen notes if a codeshare flight is involved. Your final leg into Naxos, usually from Athens, is on Olympic Air or Sky Express, both with the smaller aircraft needed for that airport.

Airport Facilities

Naxos Airport is only three kilometres from the centre of town. The terminal is small and has staggered operating times to coordinate with flight arrivals and departures. Because of the short runway, it only handles small props, such as the DHC7 or DHC8. An advantage is that you fly lower and slower and get a better view of the surrounding area. Flights must be booked well in advance, especially during the summer.

The terminal has limited passenger services, including a snack bar and vending machines. No WiFi hotspot is available. Car rental desks are near baggage claim, and taxis are available just outside the terminal doors. It's wise to book your car ahead of time because of limited availability. A car with automatic transmission is not guaranteed. A taxi ride into town runs about $15 CAD and usually takes less than ten minutes. Many people opt to get around on bicycles, scooters or quad bikes. Rentals are available in town. Limited public bus service is available in some villages, sometimes with only three runs per day. Cost is about $3 CAD per ride. Tickets are sold at kiosks in the village. The Euro is the accepted currency.

Things to do in Naxos

  • Head to the west coast of this Greek island and you'll find an almost continuous strip of sand. The most popular beaches include Agia Anna, Maragas, Agios Prokopios, and Plaka. Sunbathing is clothing optional on any beach on Naxos, but it's more common in the south near Plaka because of the dunes that block the view from the roadway. Agia Anna Beach is a favourite with naturalists because of its secluded coves that are hidden by trees.
  • Some of the villages in the middle of the island date back to the Bronze Age. Haiki is one example, with narrow, steep streets leading to the village, making it easier to defend the village against pirates. Moutsana, once an important shipping port for marble, hugs the coast, and is still a laid-back fishing village. Drive around the island, and you'll find remains of ancient temples, such as Dimitra's Temple in Sangri or the Dionysus Temple just below the village of Glinado.
