Mikri Vigla beach in Naxos

Mikri Vigla lies about 16 kilometres south of Naxos Town, not far from the paradise beach of Plaka. After Plaka, the road continues through a fertile agricultural landscape with lots of bamboo. Before you arrive at Mikri Vigla you will pass several beaches, including Kiradhes and Orkos.

To stand above the beach and study these incredibly talented surfers is a true pleasure. The beach is quite long and consists of dunes of fine sand, like at Plaka Beach, but on a smaller shape. Above the beach are several hotels and tavernas.

You need not be windsurfers and kite surfers to stay in Mikri Vigla, although many do it. I know some friends who always choose to stay here a few nights each time they are on Naxos. The major reason for that is that they are extremely fond of the beach and rocks after Mikri Vigla. If I should stay a few nights here I had surely chosen to stay at the Hotel Orkos Beach.
