Naxos Gay Guide

A guide to help you find the best hotels & places in Naxos for Gay travellers


Naxos; The Gay-Friendly Rocky Island of the Cyclades!

The gay acceptance in Naxos is pretty high, similar to any Greek Island, however, a discreet behavior on the public is always recommended. There are not many locals who actually live in the island, however, the island gets crowded every summer by locals and foreigners. The local gay community is very small, almost non-existent!

Despite the fact that Naxos island does not boast of its vivid gay and lesbian scene, it is a favorite holiday destination for all kinds of tourists because of its long history, imposing sites and amazing beaches. The best time to visit the island is during the summer when the weather is the hottest, the beaches are warm and the sun is shining!

Naxos has only one gay bar called Babylonia and it's located in Chora. There are also numerous nudist beaches around the island, some of which are visited mainly by gay travelers. Two of the most popular gay beaches around the island are Aghia Anna and Plaka Beach! Aside from gay-specific places, there are tons of places to check out around the island with your partner for the ultimate experience. Archaeological Museum of Naxos is in Chora Naxos, the heart of the island. The museum is in a Venetian building with special architectural interest, and is made up of objects and artifacts such as ceramics, vessels, idols, and statues from the Neolithic and early-Christian periods. The Geological Museum of Apeiranthos is made up of donated rare exhibits such as emery, the famous local dark marble, meteorites, and fossils. Portara is a giant marble gate over the Palatia isle, remaining from a historical temple dedicated to Apollo. The Tower of Glezos is the most famous fortress on Naxos, built with Naxian stone with sculptures on their surface, creating a cultural monument. Panagia Drosiani is a pre-Christian temple on the island built in the area between Tragaia and Moni. The temple is dedicated to "Virgin Mary of the rain" who answered local prayers about a drought that affected the island for years. Chora Naxos is a city in the heart of the island and one of the most picturesque cities of the entire Cyclades. The city is a famous tourist destination on the island, with an old modern feel created with with traditional white houses, narrow streets, influences from Venetian and Mycenaean civilization, and developed tourist infrastructure. Filoti is the largest city in Naxos and culturally developed to cater to tourists with their restaurants, cafeterias, and folk culture shops.

The shore is 1.5km long with beautiful white sand and blue waters. Agios Georgios is a more crowded beach with shallow waters, but is more preferred by families due to convenience in terms of proximity to the city and restaurants in the area. Psili Ammos is the least mainstream beach on the east side of Naxos with tropical, isolated landscape created by tall trees.

Gay Tips

When it comes to Naxos gay bars, consider having a drink at "Babylonia" bar, but other than that there are still mixed-crowded pubs and bars, a fact which proves that you won’t have any difficulty integrating yourself smoothly.

There are not any exlusive gay beaches, however there are 3 nudist-friendly beaches, which are mixed-crowded; Lacouna beach, which is the south part of St George beach, the south end of Aghia Anna beach and the north end of Aghios Prokopios beach.
