Naxos Family Hotels – Tips and Recommendations
- Booking.com – the best site for booking Naxos hotels.
- Naxos is the most family-friendly Greek Island. Great beaches, good food, fun vibe, and lots of small friendly hotels.
- Best Hotels for Families in Naxos: Nissaki Beach Hotel (for town and beach) • Kavos Boutique Hotel (for spacious villas and large pool) • Iria Beach Art Hotel (for idyllic beach resort)
- St George Beach (Agios Georgios) is an easy walk from all Naxos Town hotels and is the most kid-friendly beach on Naxos. It’s protected on 3 sides and very shallow for a long distance out.
- The wonderful beaches of Agios Prokopios, Agia Anna, and Plaka are all easily reached by bus from Naxos Town.
- Renting a car makes seeing the wonderful inland villages much easier (especially when traveling with kids).
