The island of Naxos, until recently, remained far from the grasp of mass tourism. A lot has changed since then. As people kept on looking for new destinations, they finally discovered the endless charms of Naxos. For the island, that signified a major change.
Putting it on the map of one of the most beautiful Greek island destinations meant that the island had to undergo a transformation, in order to live up to its new name. This sounds a lot easier than it actually is. For it was not only the island that had to change, the people had to follow too.
As the new generation of the Naxos entrepreneurs took over the old businesses, they literally transformed them. They now became a blend of modern services and style, yet traditional in their core businesses, with well trained staff, ready for the new challenge.
One of the most successful business sectors on Naxos is the one involved with food. Taverns and restaurants compete to gain the hearts of more customers by offering original dishes to be found nowhere else. This has also boosted the island’s economy by providing additional workload to the already flourishing local production sector.
The accommodation businesses were the ones affected the most by this change of Naxos tourism. Older hotels had to be renovated in full, or they would struggle to find clients. Now, most studios, apartments and hotels in Naxos offer the best possible services in a highly pleasing environment.
Another demanding section of Naxos tourism has been the one of Adventure Travel. It engulfs such a great variety of sports and travel experiences that you will never be bored. Choose your adventure carefully among wind-surfing, sailing, snorkeling, hiking, mountain-biking, horseback riding and others. Naxos can now offer anything you might desire.
