Giardini Naxos

Giardini Naxos
The Essential
The beach where the first Greeks landed in Sicily 2 700 years ago today hosts thousands of holidaymakers, drawn here by the town's ideal location, mild climate and the long golden beach that skirts the bay. The so-called Garden Town specialised in growing cotton and sugar cane, crops later replaced by citrus groves, which remain its main source of income. The modern town developed from 1950.
