And after breakfast I went to reception to try and solve the mystery of the missing Grotto 'ancient monument' mark on the map, as I hate leaving missing pieces of a jigsaw. A very knowledgeable chap at the counter told me it is the sunken City of Naxos but the remains in the sea can't been seen. However there is a museum on the Grotto side of town that displays parts of it under glass. Also he gave me a tip about the Iria Sanctuary on the St George's side of town which was only a few km's walk.

So these were my targets to fit in today lol

So on the main road to the airport

The ancient sunken City of Naxos was was said to have been lost in an earthquake. The original Naxos was built on the Grotto side of town and the modern town has spread out to St George's side

In 1982 archaeologist uncovered the remains of part of the sunken city and declared it too unstable to continue and covered it up again. However, it was agreed to maintain a small part of it protected under glass and housed in a museum to shelter it.

parts of it are Mycenaen with burial tombs

Return to Ag Anna

I had a special task which involved going back to Ag Anna as I did not walk the beach and missed several taverna's on the last visit.

Remember Ag Prokopios runs into Ag Anna and a few minutes walk to either bay and the taverna's

So starting at the end of Ag Prokopios the bay of Ag Anna joins on after this bend in the road in the picture

This evening for our last meal we thought we would try and find a restaurant in the lanes of the Port. We came across one and the menu looked good. I asked about the house wine and he said 5 euros a half. That sounds good. He then said do you want the music bar or the view. Oh we said a view and he said upstairs. This was the Flamingo restaurant

and asked to pay 17.60 euros for two sprites (3.50 each ) and two baguettes in the only airport cafe. Mykonos is not for us

The Easyjet crew announced as you have been paying Mykonos prices, our £2.50 coffees are going to seem cheap lol

I hope you enjoyed holidaying with the Delboys once again

End of Day Fifteen

Summing up we enjoyed Naxos and rated it with Thassos but I can see things changing as the upmarket beach bars are pushing prices towards the workings of Mykonos but still plenty of Taverna's that make it our type of holiday and never paid more than 5 euros for the house wine.
