This is a must at naxos. We were there for 1h or more enjoying all the stages of the sunset. Certainly a bit crowded but worth it. If you want to shoot photos you should get there early to grab a spot.

Probably the most seen and heard landmark of Naxos. Left from the ancient temple of Apollo as is mostly known for the perfect sunset than its' great history. Be there the latest at 19.30' to enjoy a full sunset.

It might not seem like much as compared to the Acropolis, but this is just a small inkling of the beautiful structures that the ancient Greeks were able to construct. A must see, preferably at sunset.

Excellent town views from this small promontory. Its gets too crowded for my taste at sunset, but the sunset views here are gorgeous.

Be here in the evening to have a great sun set view. Location is also known as the Temple of Apollo. It might get crowdy around sun set so be sure to get there in time.

Thus highlight is really close to the port. Walking distance. It provides great views of the port, the town and especially the sunset.

Not a huge place, but the portara is nice to see at every day or night time. Close to the city, nice waves sound.

Lovely place to walk and visit especially at sunset. Small uphill climb with stairs. Comfortable shoes needed. Beautiful views.

Great little walk with wonderful views. Just disappointed that there was no information about the structures.
