The incredibly beautiful beach of Mikri Vigla on Naxos island is located 18 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.
