COME SEE The 3 Best Sunset Spots In Naxos, Greece.

1. THE TEMPLE OF APOLLO

LOCATION: Open in Google Maps

The Portara, or the Great Door is a giant marble doorway that stands proudly as the main monument of Naxos. It was built in the 6th century BC as the temple of Apollo. The temple faces the island of Delos where he was supposedly born. He was the god of sun, light, music and prophecy. It is visited most frequently at sunset because that is when people can view it through the doorway which makes for some magical photos. We unfortunately visited of a very cloudy rainy day and didn’t get the sunset we hoped for but it was still very beautiful to see.

2. ST. NICOLAS CHURCH , AGIA ANNA

LOCATION: Open in Google Maps

Agia Anna was the small beachy town where we were staying. It had a beautiful shore line and a cove with many big rock formations all surround the church of St. Nicolas. We visited this beauty for sunset and it really did put on a show. From the church and surround rocks you watch the sunset hide behind the island of Paros and see all the colours light up the sky. Truly magical.

3. THE PORT OF NAXOS

LOCATION: Open in Google Maps

Another rainy, cloudy night but this time it made for some beautiful visions. The pinky purpley tones shining their hardest through the clouds and some of the most beautiful reflections lit up the street where the cobblestone was still wet from the rain. Sometimes a cloudy sunset ain’t so bad hey! There are many nice rooftop bars and restaurants along the harbour strip to watch the sun go down from.
