The remains of ancient Naxos are located on Cape Schisò: excavations have brought to light much interesting information about the fifth century BC city. Its urban layout was very regimented, straight lines and traverses intersecting each other, forming small blocks where the houses of the settlers stood.
Part of the original walls of the Naxos town has been uncovered with large lava blocks running a length of 600 meters. There is also an area where an important sanctuary was found, probably dedicated to Aphrodite, in which there was discovered the foundation of an even earlier construction. Due to the furnaces utilized for the production of ceramics, Giardini Naxos was apparently a small center of skilled artisans.
The fine sandy beach of Giardini Naxos practically covers the long bay, with Hill Tauro behind it,
from which Taormina seems to observe the coast. The water is usually very clean, although the sandy bottom does not grant great diving spectacles.
The beach is well equipped and alternates its diverse stretches of public beaches with private clubs.
At night, the twinkling lights of the bay reflect on the water, giving the scenic bay an almost magical look.
