This is the day you will head towards the central and northern parts of Naxos. A village which you should not miss is Halki (also know as Tragaia). It used to be the old capital of the island with many old mansions. Enter the village through the narrow street found by the bus stop and discover the Vallindra distillery, the oldest citron distillery in Naxos. There you can take a tour of the building and its history and try the different types of citron still produced today. ( Advice: park the car in the school’s courtyard which functions as a public parking area, 100 metres from the bus stop – coming from the direction of the main town).
After your walk through the village continue on to the village of Filoti, with ancient sycamore trees right on the main square. Just after Filoti you can visit the cave of Za. To reach the cave you have to walk through a footpath, for about a distance of 1km. To visit a beach, choose the magnificent beach of Mikri Vigla (you are adviced to choose a day with calm winds, since strong gales tend to cause the fine sand to rise and can turn your swimming experience into an unpleasant one) or the bay of Aliko.
In the area you can choose to eat at Pyrgaki, which offers a wide choice of taverns that combine traditional products of Naxos with creativity, offering a pleasant surprise to your tastebuds. For your evening strole, head towards the beach of Aghia Anna and have a drink at one of the beach bars in the area.( Advice: Between 10/8-20/8 make a reservation in order to find a table to sit).
