Naxos Mikri Vigla Beach (Parthena)

General information

The breathtaking beach of Mikri Vigla in Naxos island is located 12 kilometers away from the capital and consists of two enchanting sandy beaches separated by an impressive hill.

- The northern part is wonderful, with soft golden sand and crystalline turquoise waters. It is blessed by the Meltemi (north winds specific to the Cyclades), which makes it an ideal place for windsurfing and kitesurfing.
For that reason, the beach is an internationally famous kitesurfing and windsurfing spot and boasts clubs for renting high-quality equipment and taking courses.

- The southern part (on the other part of the hill) is an endless sandy beach (also called Sahara or Limanakia) with amazing crystal waters. Since shielded from the Meltemi winds, it is recommended for family holidays.

Between the two lies Kavos beach, a small yet charming region with the same characteristics. 

Several lovely hotels and restaurants can be found in the area surrounding area. Try Kontos for excellent food and marvelous views over the sea and the islet of Panagia Pathena.

    A nice sunset place

    A nice and calm place to see the sunset. Right on the beach with nice views. Just be aware that it is a windy area. You can also practice or learn windsurfing and kitesurfing there.

    Great beach
    This is one of the most beautiful beaches of Naxos. When it is not windy, this is an amazing beach for swimmers.
    But often windy, it is an excellent spot for windsurfing and kitesurfing. There are a couple of clubs there to learn these kind of sea sports. In the case it is windy, there is also the second beach of Mikri Vigla that is called "Sahara" which is protected from the winds and an amzing place also.
