The incredibly beautiful beach of Mikri Vigla on Naxos island is located 12 kilometres away from the capital and consists in two wonderful sandy beaches separated by an impressive hill.
- The northern beach of Mikri Vigla beach 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, the beach is an internationally famous kitesurfing and windsurfing spot and has 2 good clubs for renting high quality material and take courses.
- The southern beach of Mikri Vigla (on the other part of the hill) is an endless sandy beach (also called Sahara or Limanakia) with amazing crystal waters; because it is protected from the meltemi winds, it is reccommended for family holidays. A typical greek tavern is also located there.
Several nice hotels and restaurants can be found in the area surrounding area. Try Kontos with excelent food and amazing views over the Mikri Vigla bay.

Car rental: Τhere’s the option of renting a car in Naxos with as little as 15 euros per day and pick it up directly from the airport, port or your hotel. Using a car rental allows visitors to discover Mikri Vigla beach and many other places of interest in Naxos at their own pace.
Public transfers: The central bus station of the island is located at the port of Naxos. There are several buses from Chora to Mikri Vigla during the day. Consider that time schedules might change according to the season. Check the official timetables here.
From Naxos airport to Mikri Vigla: Note that there is no bus station at the airport and the best option is to book a car or a transfer. If you still want to use the public bus, after exiting the airport buildings, follow the road to the left, the bus station (Naxos Camp) is located 500 meters away. From Naxos Camp, visitors can take the bus route Plaka - Agia Anna > Chora (approximately every 30 minutes during summer) to Naxos central station. From there, visitors should take a bus to reach Mikri Vigla.
From Naxos port to Mikri Vigla: The bus station is located at the port of Naxos. From there, visitors who have arrived by ferry to Naxos should take a bus to reach Mikri Vigla.
Tip: Since buses don’t always stop in every scheduled stop of their itinerary, our advice to visitors is to inform the driver about their final destination, so that he makes a stop there.
