    Precise previous comments regarding the noise level late at night from nightclubs, this anchorage is on sand of good behavior with clear water, anchorage much better protected than that of Taormina. The town of Naxos seems very ordinary but a practical stopover, the fortified village is very beautiful, the view of Etna and the surrounding landscape as well.

    Commentaires précédents exacts quant au niveau sonore tard la nuit des boîtes de nuit , ce mouillage est sur sable de bonne tenue eau claire, mouillage beaucoup mieux protégé que celui de Taormina. La ville de Naxos paraît très quelconque mais escale pratique, le village fortifié est très beau, la vue sur l Etna et le paysage environnant également .

    Good anchorage. Protection provided by the dike but a stop on our way back from Greece makes us regret the calm. Music running the length of the beach and lots of little engines that make the horses roar. It must be nice ...... out of season.

    Bon mouillage. Protection assurée par la digue mais un arrêt en rentrant de Grèce nous fait regretter les calmes. Musique sur toute la longueur de la plage et beaucoup de petits moteurs qui font rugir les chevaux . Cela doit être sympa......hors saison.

    Dreamy and perfect Anchorage. Spent a week here in June. Good hold in sand. Used the new pontoon to take rib to shore. Lovely beaches, seaside restaurants and bars (these can be a little loud at night) Excellent protection. 30 min walk to Taormina train station. Visited a few times whilst we wintered in Riposto. No hassle from coastguard.
