7 DAYS / 10 DIVES IN NAXOS FROM 900€
The nature of Naxos talks to the heart of every artist with its authenticity, richness and simplicity. The island is marked by great variety: mountains with ravines, caves and gullies shade verdant valleys with olive, fig, orange, lemon trees and vineyards, abundant waters. The valleys end at smooth, sandy beaches adorned with juniper and tamarisk trees; villages are surrounded by fields and vegetable gardens; migratory birds find refuge on trees, while wild pigeons and swifts in the inaccessible coastal rocks. A big island in the heart of the Aegean Sea and its sea routes, with imposing mountain massifs and fertile valleys, inhabited by cheerful people with a tradition in music and dance, and full of beauty that enchants visitors. With its long history, important monuments and intense tourist life, Naxos Island occupies a distinct place among the Cycladic islands. No matter how many days you stay on Naxos, there will always surely be more hidden niches to discover, beaches you haven’t seen, towers and forts you did not have time to visit, ancient temples whose secrets remain a mystery.

Walk to the beach for two morning dives at Graviera Reef and Pantieronisi Cave dive sites. Graviera Reef is one of the greatest reef dives in Greece. Excellent morphology with canyons and safe caves full of holes that a lot of marine life finds shelter in. Pantieronisi cave has three entrances. The largest entrance is at 3.5m till 11m depth. The smallest is a tunnel that starts at 16m depth and after 15m of penetration ends at 8m depth. The light creates an incredible scenery.
Walk to the beach for two morning dives at Arado Wreck and Beaufighter Wreck dive sites. The first dive spot is a beautiful bay protected from the weather, on Iraklia Island. A dive in the history of the World War I gives you the opportunity to explore a German Arado, which was shot down after dense enemy fires. The Beaufighter had a long career and served in the Second World War, first as a night fighter, then as a fighter-bomber.
