Leaving at 09:45 from Agia Anna port. We sail along Naxos West coast and in approximately 1,5 hours we reach Agios Sozon. You will have the opportunity to swim and visit Agios Sozon chapel; a wave wept chapel literally built on the edge of the cliff with an interesting history: "In the old days a merchant's ship was wrecked in the maritime area off the coast south of Naxos. The merchandise on the boat was oil and wine. During the captain's battle with the waves, he promised God that if he would be saved, he would build a chapel and dedicate to it his oil and wine. Indeed, the adventure had a happy ending and the captain managed to get ashore to a rocky place on the coast. Thus, as the story says, he built a chapel and gave it the name Agios Sozon (Saint Savior)".
Next stop is Rina`s cave. Take the opportunity and swim in the cave, dive from above if you are adventurous enough, step at the nearby pebble beach where the unique water spring is located. It is a magnificent place only accessible by sea!
After that, we enjoy a splendid barbeque break with variety of delicacies, home made with local naxian products and plenty of options for vegetarians/ vegans accompanied with local wine, water and soft drinks at Spedo beach.
Last but not least our stop is Panermos or Panormos; a golden sandy beach found at the southeast part of the island at a distance of 54 km from Naxos Town. It is probably to be the quietest beach of Naxos, a protected bay like a small harbor with beautiful palm trees. The mouth of the bay is a real delight with calm, warm, crystal clear and shallow waters ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
We depart approximately at 16.00 and we are back at Agia Anna`s port at 17.30.
