Naxos Sailing Tours – Getting the Mediterranean Sea Under your Skin
Sailing is undeniably one of the most exciting activities to try out when visiting beautiful Naxos island. The magnificent gem of the Cyclades offers plenty of opportunities for fantastic Naxos sailing tours that allow you to explore the fab coastline and even set sails for the surrounding islands.
The good news about the majority of Naxos tours is that they can be as diverse and personalised as you wish so that they meet your particular demands. This means that you can choose from a variety of routes and various sailboat types (from luxury yachts to elegant catamarans equipped with large decks and shade aft lounges for perfect relaxation and sunbathing experiences) and spend your time in the cobalt waters of the shimmering Aegean Sea the way you have dreamed it.
Below, you will find some illustrative examples of Naxos island tours you could consider. However, feel free to add or change the plan according to your need and desires at any given time! Sometimes, going off the beaten path brings the most unforgettable times and memories!
Discovering hidden coves and breath-taking shores
One of the best ways to use the available Naxos sailing tours is to explore the beaches in Naxos whose crystalline waters and sandy shores comprise a heart-stopping spectacle on their own. The island is full of options, from secret caves, rocky cliffs casting their shadow over sandy shores, and secluded bays to remote beaches and an underwater world so rich and beautiful that it feels almost unworldly. You may choose one of the single-day Naxos tours and sail from one seashore to another (and have as much swimming, snorkeling, and diving as your heart desires), or turn it into a multi-day festivity that may as well include traversing the wonderful coastline in a much broader sense (i.e., stop at seaside taverns and cafes to enjoy local dishes or a nice cup of coffee or even throw a cruise party while out in the open sea). In the latter case, do not hesitate to place your particular request at Iria Beach’s receptionists – we are not one of the most prestigious hotels in Naxos with a strong focus on and reputation for satisfying our guests’ wish lists!
Island hopping the right way
Allow your experienced captain and skipper take you on fantastic Naxos sailing tours to the other Cycladic islands that dot the Aegean Sea. You may visit, for example, Koufonisia, Schinousa, Paros, Antiparos, and even Mykonos and Santorini if you are willing to go the extra mile! Such Naxos tours may be booked with a 2 or 3-day itinerary and enable you to have an entire boat to yourself – just for you and your loved one(s) or friends. However, it is not uncommon to see Naxos sailing tours departing from quite remote harbours, such as Rafina and Piraeus, Athens! While on board, you may savour from special events and BBQ lunches to dinner parties accompanied by cold refreshments, including wine, raki, ouzo, and beer, specifically organized to meet your particular holiday requirements in case you need much more than just another sailing trip!
Also, you may choose the desired pick-up point. For instance, you could ask for transportation arrangements to be made from your selected Naxos accommodation. Ask our lovely receptionists at Iria Beach for their assistance and rest assured they will do everything humanly possible to have the dream vacation you want!
Traditional sailing adventures
If you wish to live an authentic Naxos Greece experience, then Naxos sailing tours by wooden boat or caique is the way to go. You may start from the charming Kalados Bay after a rejuvenating private swim in the secluded shore and when you are done exploring the famous Rina Cave (is accessible only via snorkeling gear). Choose your next stop between a plethora of destinations surrounding Naxos, hop off the boat to walk in the local villages with the distinct whitewashed houses and bougainvillea-filled balconies, hike imposing mountainous areas, visit historical monument, and taste some local cuisine along the way before you continue your Naxos sailing tours with the company of dolphins that may surprise you with their playful nature should they decide to pop up! By the time you return to Iria Beach hotel, one of the most top-rated hotels in Naxos Greece, we bet you will be simply heart-filled with loving memories.
