Exploring Naxos Sailing Holidays area Add Mikri Vigla Beach to favorites Add Mikri Vigla Beach to your Points of Interest

The incredibly beautiful beach resort of Mikri Vigla is located 18 kilometres away from the capital and consists in two wonderful sandy beaches separated by an impressive hill. The northern beach of Mikri Vigla is wonderful, with soft golden sand and crystalline turquoise waters and is blessed by the meltemi (north winds specific to the Cyclades) which make it an ideal place for wind/kitesurfing. For that reason Mikri Vigla is an internationally famous kite/ windsurfing spot and has some good centers renting high quality equipment. The southern beach (on the other part of the hill) is an endless sandy beach called Sahara with amazing waters; because it is protected from the meltemi winds, it is considered as a calm family beach. A typical greek tavern is also located there. Several nice hotels and restaurants can be found in the area surrounding Mikri Vigla. Mikri Vigla is one of the best beaches for beginners and experienced kite surfers and windsurfers. The water is 1 meter deep. Surfers must be very careful because there are many surfers.
