Naxos bus station.
As you exit the ferry Naxos Town is straight ahead. Just follow the crowd along the pier and into town.
It’s a flat, easy walk to the bus station. About a 3 to 5-minute walk depending on where your ferry docks.
Along the way you’ll pass the taxi queue. If there aren’t taxis here keep walking into town, there are often more taxis waiting close to the bus station.
At the end of the pier is the “Naxos Bus Transfer” – or bus station. Buy tickets inside before boarding the bus. Bus schedules are posted outside or grab printed schedules inside.
There’s a small but nice swimming beach directly beside the bus station.
The famous Naxos Portara is at the end of the same beach.
