Getting around in Naxos
The roads on Naxos are in good condition. The traffic is quite lively in and around Naxos Town and along the road down to the beaches on the west coast. But the traffic is almost negligible as soon as you drive into the countryside.
BY SCOOTER, CAR OR BICYCLE
Naxos is a large island and it takes some time to discover the whole island, and therefore a car is a better choice than a scooter. A scooter is best suited for shorter distances, like to the beaches on the west coast. The south-western parts of the island is almost completely flat and well suited to be explored by bicycle.
The competition is high, so it pays to compare prices.
It's a cinch to ride a bicycle from Naxos Town, via the beaches of Agios Prokopios, Agia Anna and Plaka, all the way to Mikri Vigla. But it is not only around the beaches you meet cyclists, one often meet persistent cyclists in the most impossible spots, high in the mountains. There are also electric bikes for rent. Car, scooter and bicycle rental places are available in Naxos Town and in all major tourist resorts.

Printed timetables are available at the bus station. Tickets must be purchased in advance, either at the bus station in Naxos Town or in kiosks.
