Is Naxos worthwhile if not planning to spend time on the beach?

Jump to last reply

Hi all! We are in the process of planning our first trip to Greece in early October. I have been lurking and reading for a couple of weeks and am now ready to start asking questions.

Our first stop is going to be Santorini (3 or 4 nights) and then from there I was planning to spend 2 or 3 nights in Naxos in order to experience another island with a different vibe. After that we would fly/ferry to Athens, pick up a rental car and head towards the Peloponnese for the next 2 weeks.

We would be arriving in Naxos on September 30, give or take a day.

Here is where I'm having second thoughts about this.

We live in Puerto Rico, we have amazing beaches available at all times so beach-going is not a priority for us while on vacation. We love history, people-watching, sightseeing, museums, natural views, driving, hiking, and -above all- eating (and drinking). I can see ourselves spending time on a beach bar watching the world go by for a couple of hours per day but certainly not for more than that.

So, after reading up, I'm beginning to wonder if we should go to Naxos at all or spend our precious vacation days somewhere else in the Peloponnese.

Thoughts?
