Europe Greece Spending Reports

Cost of Living in Naxos, Greece (4 Nights Spending Report)

Last week, I spent 4 nights in Santorini and 3 nights in Naxos. Initially I planned on visiting Naxos for 3 nights, but I had to revise this to 2 after some unforeseen circumstances. However, my digital nomad friend from Naxos ended up hosting me for an extra 2 nights so I was able to extend my stay!

Naxos Nights

Naxos was as affordable as Athens, even though it was a beautiful island with tons of beaches. Costs were still low even if I ate beach-side. For example, my fish entree was only 7.50 Euros even though I was literally eating on a restaurant on the beach sand. This would be unimaginable in California.

As always, these spending reports aim to give you a better picture of how expensive or affordable places are around the world. This guide will hopefully help you understand the cost of living in Naxos, Greece!

Disclaimer:

  • Because my friend had a car and my other friend had a moped, I didn’t have to pay for transportation within Naxos.
  • I had to pay for an extra ferry ticket, and also paid to change my ferry date to Athens. But my 2 nights of stay at my friend’s property sort of compensated for that.
  • I ate lots of baguettes, spaghetti, and gyros…my diet was not the greatest.

My total spend for 4 nights in Naxos was $201.44 which amounted to $50.36 per night. Not too shabby in my opinion!

I ended up enjoying Naxos more than I had imagined, and I managed to get a lot of work done while I was out there because there was good Wi-Fi on the beach! The affordability of the island was the cherry on top. What did you think of Naxos? Let us know what you think in the comments!
