Glinado is a small inland village of Naxos, located in a fertile valley and engaged in farming. It is not tourist-oriented and facilities like accommodation and eating options are limited.
Glinado is located 6 km away from the center of Naxos Town and 5 km away from Agia Anna and the seaside. It is also close to the traditional villages of Agios Arsenios and Vivlos. There is no separate center or square, just white cubical houses and narrow alleys between them. One taverna operates in the village all year round, the hotels and villas are scattered out of Glinado, on the slopes with view toward the sea.
