Your Boat rental in Naxos

Less crowded than its counterparts in the Cyclades, Naxos is well-positioned to hold its own. Do your friends tell you about their holidays in Mykonos, Sifnos, Santorini, or Paros? Surprise them by choosing the island where, according to legend, Dionysus picked up Ariadne. You won't lose track of things when hiring a boat in Naxos online, nor from the harbor, and even less so at sea. Your holiday in Greece will start on an island of great wealth.

Its geographical riches include Mount Zas which gives it the status of the highest island in the Cyclades archipelago. It is also the largest, with a total area of 993.1 square miles. In addition, it possesses economic wealth, thanks to the export of marble and emery. While tourism is its third strong point, Naxos is also known for its gastronomy, being renowned for its potatoes, vines, olives, and cheese.

Naxos turns its back on those parts of the Cyclades that large groups of holidaymakers only choose because of their nightlife. Come and enjoy a different kind of experience in which windsurfing, mountains (including Mount Zeus!), and Naxos embroideries blend at will into your various outings. On a sailing boat or motorboat, Antiparos and Amorgos virtually light up before you but remain excellent recommended first stops.

The cost of renting a boat in Naxos for your cruise depends on the size and type of boat, its capacity, the itinerary, whether you rent with a skipper or not, and the duration of your rental.

Renting a boat with or without a skipper

There are two main options when chartering a yacht in Naxos, Greece: with or without a skipper. Both options have their own set of perks that make them appealing to different types of travelers.

A boat rental with a skipper means that you have someone who is familiar with the area and can take you to all the best spots. This option is ideal for those who want to relax and enjoy the scenery without having to worry about navigation or mooring.

Bare boat charters, on the other hand, give you the freedom to explore at your own pace. This option is perfect for experienced sailors or those who are comfortable navigating on their own.

Where to sail in Naxos?

A boat charter in Naxos, Greece, is the perfect way to explore the small Cyclades islands. With so many amazing places to see, it can be tough to know where to start. Here are our top picks for the best places to sail in Naxos.

For the best views, head to the top of Mount Zeus. This is the highest point on the island and from here you can see stunning panoramas of Naxos Town, the surrounding islands, and even as far as mainland Greece on a clear day.

If you're looking for a more secluded spot to anchor, try one of the many sheltered bays around the island. Plaka Beach is a great option, with its turquoise waters and sandy shores. For something a little more rugged, try Kastraki Beach, where you can anchor among the dramatic cliffs.

Of course, no visit to Naxos would be complete without stopping at one of its famous archaeological sites. The Temple of Demeter is a must-see, especially if you're interested in Greek mythology. And for something truly unique, don't miss the Venetian Castle of Fortezza.
