Weather & Wind conditions in Naxos
Naxos is one of the most popular kitesurfing destinations in Greece due to its strong and consistent winds. Some of its golden beaches are very well-known among all kitesurfing enthusiasts thanks to the annual northern wind known as the Etesian wind or Meltemi which blows from the North on almost a daily basis -more than 20-25 days per month- during the warm summer months and usually reaches 4-5 Bft (11-21 knots) and more. Meltemi wind is a result of the venturi effect caused by the meeting of the high pressure system of the Balkans and the low pressure system of Turkey above the islands. A mini venturi effect is also created between Paros and Naxos and makes the wind even stronger. Contrary to other Mediterranean winds, Meltemi is considered the most reliable one as it usually lasts a few days at a time and then stops only to start blowing again shortly after.
