Start early to make the most of the day.
Enjoy this day trip in Naxos with kids, which is our favourite island in the Cyclades. Naxos has an authentic feel and small-town charm. Everyone is super-friendly, the city is walkable, fairly flat and stroller-friendly. The food is cheap and some of the best we experienced. This relaxing day itinerary starts with breakfast on the waterfront at Rendez-Vous Café. Next, a visit to the most recognizable landmark in Naxos, the Portara. Enjoy the winding pedestrian streets and explore some of the unique shops. Then, head to one of Naxos’ family-friendly beaches to cool off and build some sand castles. Finish off the day with a walk back to the Portara for a stunning sunset view before hitting the patio at Scirocco for the best moussaka in Greece.
