Danakos in Naxos

There are villages on Naxos that are almost not visited by any tourists at all, villages completely unaffected by tourism, villages where the way of living in many respects is lived in the same way as it always has done, villages that do not earn anything on tourism. Danakos is such a village, a typical Greek village that could be located anywhere in Greece.

 

In Danakos, time has stood still. Naxos.

The village has a very nice location between two valleys. Not much is happening during a day. When strolling around one are struck by the incredible serenity, the silence are sometimes broken by cackling chickens, crowing cocks and some bleating goats. Some villagers may stand and chatting in a corner and a donkey may doze off behind a stone wall.


It is said that there are three tavernas in Danakos, but I only saw two on my last visit, and only one was open. If you want to collect your thoughts for a while and maybe think about life, there is hardly a better place to do it than at the taverna at the parking lot.

Sit down here for a while and I promise that you go from here with a heart full of harmony. Danakos is perhaps no village to run like mad for, but if you want to experience a Greek village where time stood still, then Danakos is well worth a visit.

The turning to Danakos is just after Filoti, on the way towards Apiranthos. From the turning down to the end of the road, where Danakos is located, it is about 3 kilometres.
