What to do in Naxos with Kids?

Naxos is a wonderful island to visit when on vacation in Greece. Whether visiting as a day trip from Mykonos, or for a week of fun in the sun, there’s plenty for all the family to see and do. Here are our suggestions for some things to do in Naxos with kids.


If your idea of the perfect vacation is to simply spend time on the beaches and enjoy that lovely Greek sun, you’ve got a lot of choice in Naxos island! Agia Anna, Plaka, and Mikri Vigla beaches are all great suggestions, with dozens more waiting for you to discover. Some have sheltered calm bays, and others are more exposed to the wind, making them ideal for water sports such as kite surfing and windsurfing. Hire a car for a day or two and visit the more remote beaches. Going to the beach is surely one of your favorite things to do on Naxos with the kids!

Sightseeing Tours on Naxos

Whilst it might be tempting to spend as much time on the beach as you can, there is a lot more to see in Naxos! One of the best ways to visit the highlights of the island is during our private family sightseeing tour. Not only do you have the company of an expert local guide to drive and show you around the island, but you can also adjust the itinerary. This means that we can include your specific interests such as visiting a farm, a traditional village, or a place you’ve heard about through a friend. This private tour is a nice choice for people visiting the island for only a day or two because it covers many places with an expert local for commentary and guidance.

During this walking tour, you will discover the streets of Naxos town, sampling locally made cheeses and other goodies along the way. There is also a chance to taste a traditionally prepared lamb or fish dish depending on the season. Why will the kids love this food tour in Naxos? Tell them you will all be visiting a candy specialist who will show you all how candy is made!

Family Cooking Class

Break up your vacation with a family cooking class. This type of activity is a nice change from a constant dose of beaches and ancient sites and is a fun way to meet some locals and discover more about Greek food. We offer family cooking classes in Naxos in several villages. Create your own pie in a traditional bakery and bake it in a wood-fired oven, or discover the secrets of local dishes known only to the Yia-Yias (Grandmas) of the island.
