From the small port of Agia Anna daytrips to the southernmost beach of Kalandos are available during the season.

One of the best books for sale in most of the local bookshops is "Naxos and the Small Cyclades" by Christian Ucke and Peter Graf.

It has a wealth of information with very detailed descriptions of different walks on Naxos.
 

"Central Naxos, A Guide with Map" published by the local Municipality, is also available in most bookshops.

Naxos town has a small medical center, quite a few chemists, several laundries, some good supermarkets and many smaller shops offering local produce.
In the early morning, at the upper part of the port, local farmers will often be selling their fresh farm produce.

 
Some specialist shops sell Naxos honey, excellent local cheeses, olive oil and dried fruit and herbs. Naxos also has some excellent jewellers and leathershops.

The Kitron liqueur is one of the specialities of the island, made from the leaves of a special citrus tree.
The traditional distillery of the Vallindras family can be visited in the village of Halki.
   

In Halki you will also find L'Olivier which sells beautiful stoneware ceramics with the main themes of olives and fish. The shop is beautifully appointed and a veritable treasure trove.

There is also a pottery in the village of Damalas where the local potter, Manolis Libertas, continues the family tradition.
