Naxos in detail

Getting Around


Frequent buses run to Agios Prokopios Beach (€1.80) and Agia Anna (€1.80) from Hora. Seven buses daily serve Filoti (€2.50) via Halki (€2.2); five serve Apiranthos (€3.30) via Filoti and Halki; and at least two serve Apollonas (€6.40), Pyrgaki (€2.50) and Melanes (€1.80). There are less frequent departures to other villages.

Buses leave from the end of the ferry quay in Hora; timetables are posted outside the bus information office, diagonally left and across the road from the bus stop. You have to buy tickets from the office or from the machine outside (not from the bus driver).

Car & Motorcycle

August rates for hire cars during peak season range from about €45 to €65 per day, quad bikes from €30 and scooters from €20. Hire from Naxos Auto Rent, Rental Center, Auto Tour or Fun Car. Moto Art rents out brand new scooters (from €25 per day) and ATVs (from €30 per day).


Due to its large size, most visitors to Naxos rely on buses or their own wheels to travel around. Taxis are an option for shorter trips (eg Hora to Agios Prokopios Beach or Agia Anna for around €10). Taxis cluster at the port, or you can call one.
