Apollonas
 
 
 
Apollonas is the most Northern village on Naxos. It is a small fishing port with some tourist accommodation.
The village has two beaches and a variety of waterside tavernas along the quayside.
It offers the traveler a welcome break after a journey through the mountains of the North of the island or along the coastal road.

Above the village, near the main road, is the giant marble statue, the Kouros of Apollonas which dates back to the 6th century BC The statue has a length of 10 meters and is still in the original quarry.
The work on the statue was probably abandoned because a fault developed in the marble.
