Naxos in Greece, has a wide choice of beaches, from those which are only sandy to those which have pebbles mixed in with the sand.
Any visitor who wants really to get to know Naxos will have to be prepared to move around exploring the island.
Naxos has a night life at certain times of the year, and it is aimed chiefly at visitors.
It centres naturally enough at Chora, where there are discoteques, bars, piano bars and night clubs with Greek popular music.
In mythology, Naxos is the island of Bacchus and Ariadne.
Bacchus (or Dionysus), the god of wine, was living here when Theseus, returning from Crete, abandoned Ariadne,
the daughter of cretean King Minos, who had helped him to slay the Minotaur, on the island.
But Ariadne finally found consolation in the arms of Bacchus and became his wife.
