Naxos is a Greek island, the largest island in the Cyclades island group in the Aegean and was the centre of archaic Cycladic culture.
The island comprises the two municipalities of Naxos and Drymalia. The largest town and capital of the island is Chora or Naxos City.
The largest and most fertile of the Cyclades Islands, Naxos in fact gains much of its income from agriculture rather than from tourism. The main town, referred to as 'Hora' on maps, but also as simply 'Naxos' or 'Naxos Town', contains most of the shops and restaurants frequented by visitors. A number of beach communities extend south along the coast from Hora.
