One of the best places to go kitesurfing in Naxos and meet fellow kitesurfers from all over the world is Mikri Vigla, a beach with silky sand and crystal clear blue waters, famous for its northern Meltemia (etesian winds). It is considered a safe spot for beginners since winds blow toward the seashore most of the time.
Other beaches that offer excellent kitesurfing opportunities are Glyfada, which is significantly less crowded than Mikri Vigla, Amitis, recommended for wave riders who carry their own equipment when the winds are strong, and Ayiassos, only when the wind blows from the South.

Weather & Wind conditions

Naxos is a popular kitesurfing destination in Greece due to its strong and consistent winds. Some of its golden beaches are well-known among kitesurfing enthusiasts thanks to the Meltemia winds, which blows from the North on almost a daily basis -more than 20-25 days per month- during the warm summer months and usually reach 4 to 7 in the Beaufort scale (11-21 knots).
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, making the wind even stronger on the western coast of Naxos. 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.
