Naxos Island
Naxos: In the heart of Cyclades, in the heart of Aegean, Naxos has, always, followed the destiny of adventure of residents of Aegean. This destiny is interwoven with travel, exchanges, new techniques and pioneering ideas, but also with wars and conflicts over the hegemony of sea.

Everything is big - imposing -, compared with the rest of Cyclades islands. The extent of the island is 435 sq. km and the length of coasts 91 km.
The form is an ellipsoid and with a mountainous volume from North to South across the island. In the backbone of this ridge dominate Za Mountain (1004 m.) and Fanari (908 m.) the highest in Cyclades.

The landscape of the island has many rotations. Plains succeed barren areas, marble mountains lead in deep shadowed glens, areas with vegetation host all white villages and sandy beaches meet the sea. The coastline of the island is almost straight and not forming large natural harbours, which affected the occupations of residents from the ancient years. In the island from end to end beautiful and clean coasts are situated next to small solitary coves. The ground of island is blessed and provides self-sufficiency to life of this place.

Naxos has a bold relief and a remarkable and rich variety of biotopes. From the altitude of the sea and coastline to the tops of hills and mountains, the various ecosystems rotate smoothly, providing safe habitat for numerous representatives of the fauna of Naxos. Marine mammals as Striped Dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba) and Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) appear frequently in the waters of Naxos, usually when they follow large flocks of fish and molluscs that cross the sea area east of Cyclades.

Naxos is a unique island in Cyclades for the monuments, the fertile plateaus, the valleys, the rivers with the small waterfalls, the olive groves and the vineyards. Also the contact with the residents in every part of the island, differing from place to place but in no case will create boredom to someone!
