The climate of Naxos (Greece)
The island of Naxos is part of the Greek Cycladic archipelago. Mount
Zas and its mountain range dominate the skyline of the island. The
highest summit of this mountain range is at 1,000 meters. The capital
of the island is Naxos city, also known as Chora. One of the most
striking buildings on the island is the Portára. This is the entrance
to the temple of Apollon, which was never built. The most popular
seaside resorts of Naxos are Agios Prokopios, Agios Anna and Plaka.
Naxos has a Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers and cold
and wet winters. During the winter large amounts of rain can be
expected. During the winter temperatures are too low to make the
island suitable as a winter sun destination. Summers are warm,
sometimes even hot. On the coast an ever blowing sea breeze offers
some cooling during the hottest days of the year.

extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
