When to Visit Naxos
- Naxos in April or May is time for spring, wild flowers and bird watching, hiking Naxos' inland footpaths, cycling, touring and visiting the villages, but also for glorious warm days when the beach beckons and the turquoise sea, though cool, looks inviting.
- June in Naxos is a beautiful month, not too busy but summer in progress, ideal for families with younger children or those who don't like crowds, watersports, beach and days exploring the island, evenings of great food under the stars.
- July and August are high summer, hot, blue, magical warm nights, energy exuding everywhere - the island in full swing.
- September in Naxos is a mellow month, warm sea, hot but not too hot days, laid back evenings and long sunsets.
- Visit Naxos in October for late season sun, swim in the summer-warmed Aegean, hike, cycle, learn cookery or painting in Naxos, relax!
- Every time of year has its highlights! Beautiful Naxos - any season, any reason!
