Apollonas - Naxos - Greece

Apollonas, the port of the settlement of Komiaki on Naxos’s northeastern coast, has been inhabited since antiquity, mainly on account of the marble quarry that extends to the north and west. It was also the port from which Naxos marble was exported throughout the operation of the ancient quarry. Apollonas today is the most touristically developed settlement of northern Naxos. Featuring picturesque white houses spreading behind an attractive sandy beach, rooms to let, hotels, tavernas and cafes, it is suitable for relaxing breaks and as a base for exploring the surrounding area which is replete with unique sights.
