It’s not only the amazing food and spectacular beaches that make Naxos a top holiday destination, the nightlife has options to suit all tastes. Every evening the picturesque alleys of Chora and the "Paralia" (waterfront) bustle with activity. Lively bars, cafés, clubs and jazz bars abound where you can have a drink, enjoy great music and dance till dawn. Nightlife around the rest of the island is concentrated on calm seaside taverns that stay open till around midnight. And that’s not all, throughout the year Naxos hosts a variety of music concerts, theatrical performances, cultural and food festivals.
