    A nice sunset place
    A nice and calm place to see the sunset. Right on the beach with nice views. Just be aware that Mikri Vigla 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.
