If you plan to take a day trip away from the hustle and bustle of Santorini , Naxos is a great choice. Although the largest island in the Cyclades, Naxos is mostly an agricultural island and is still not over run by tourists. While here, make sure to visit Portara, the only remnant of a temple dedicated to Apollo and of course, spend some time on the lovely beaches.

Santorini or Thira?

When traveling by ferry in Greece it’s important to remember that we travel between two ports and in many cases, the name of the port is not the same as the name of the island (especially as we know it in English). So, when looking for connections with Santorini, make sure to look for Thira (Santorini) or the port code ATI.
