Naxos 14 days or Paros and Naxos?

I can't decide to stay on Naxos part of the time and maybe Paros for the other part - I'm going first two weeks of July and am worried that if I leave it much longer all the accommodation will be booked up - am planning to stay in Naxos town or St George and have been looking on accommodation websites - some places are already booked up.

tecjunkie, I believe you were provided with a LOT of infomration onyour previous threads ... about excursions that are available from BOTH Naxos town and Naoussa on Paros to Santorini & to Delos/Naxos.

Often people go to Naxos, then to Paros. From Paros to Piraeus is then a shorter ferry-ride by 1 hour -- instead of 945-1500, it is 10:45-1500 ... or on the vening ferry its 7:30 instead of 6:30 departure.

I think I also mentioned that both islands have lots to see ... Naxos has the most sandy beaches accessible by frequent bus ... Paros has a variety of beaches some sandy some not. the dfference may be, not as easy to reach by public transport so car rental/scooter rental may b e necessary as I remember you have budget concerns so think about it. However, you can stay on ANTI-Paros, sandy beaches no or few cars...u would take a 10 minute ferry to rach Parikia, the Paros port city.

I also gave you a GOOD website describing the "ambience" of both islands. At a certain point, YOU have to make the decision, we cannot do it for you.
