Across Greece, from east to west and the islands, one can admire amazingly beautiful sunsets.

The Portara is one of Naxos’ most famous landmarks and is connected to Naxos Town by a man-made causeway. 

It picturesquely overlooks the ocean, so that with a bit of imagination it might be a portal to another world.

Βγάζει η θάλασσα κρυφή φωνή — φωνή που μπαίνει μες στην καρδιά μας και την συγκινεί και την ευφραίνει.

Τραγούδι τρυφερό η θάλασσα μας ψάλλει, τραγούδι που έκαμαν τρεις ποιηταί μεγάλοι, ο ήλιος, ο αέρας και ο ουρανός.

Το ψάλλει με την θεία της φωνή εκείνη, όταν στους ώμους της απλώνει την γαλήνη σαν φόρεμά της ο καιρός ο θερινός.

The busiest member of the Sporades group Skiathos, the most cosmopolitan island in the Northern Sporades, is truly a paradise on earth, with lush pine forests and crystal-clear azure waters.

Despite the rapid growth in tourism here in recent decades, the island is still picturesque and unspoilt and blessed with more than 60 beautifully clean beaches. The most famous is Koukounariés, which has been declared the third most beautiful beach in the Mediterranean.

When you add in its bustling nightlife, it is only natural that the island attracts thousands of young visitors every year… and even more Cypriots!!!
