Naxos | Our favorite parts of it

horse riding in naxos
Naxos (Νάξος) is the largest Cycladic island, green and very mountainous. It has been one of our favorites places to visit for the last 10 years. In this post we collected three of our pictures that reminds us some great moments we spent on the island some years ago.     1. Horse riding. Beautiful rides on the beach. Great sunset views. If you like adventures do not miss it!

2. Shark rock in Agia Anna. We would never forget the feeling when we were walking and came across this rock. At least this one is harmless.  Later we found out that this is a touristic attraction.

Visit Anafi (Ανάφη) at least once in your lifetime and you will want to come back again and again. A cycladic island with virgin landscape and simple lifestyle that offers vacation away from the crowds and the busy Greek islands.  Anafi has got just one village, the capital named Chora and about 11 sandy and crystal clear beaches (some ideal for nudists and free campers). All beaches are non-organised (no sunbeds or umbrellas, and definitely no beach bars).

A hidden oasis in Paros. The Valley of Butterflies

The Valley of Butterflies in Paros island, is an exceptional lush green park surrounded by tons of butterflies. From June to August butterflies, named Tiger moths, settle in the green area for reproduction. During September the female ones lay their eggs on the trees and then they die. Οne month later the caterpillars make their appearance from the eggs and next May they become butterflies.

Many butterflies sleep during the day hours and if you see closely you will notice hundreds of them, mainly on the trees. A few more fly and you can notice the amazing red colour on the underside of their wings. Visitors enjoy walks in this fairy tale land where tall cypresses, carob trees and orchards create a cool and shady to escape from the island’s summer heat.
