Mikri Vigla, Naxos Island

The coastal tourist resort of Mikri Vigla is situated some 16,5 kilometers southern to the town of Naxos (Chora), at the western coast of the island. The settlement counts less than 100 permanent residents.

The settlement offers several facilities for accommodation and there are many sea front taverns where you will enjoy nice local food and fresh fish.

The beach in front of the settlement is excellent and well organized, with facilities for swimming sunbathing and sea sports, above all wind surfing, as the place is ideal for this sport. The beach is beautiful and scenic, with fine white sand and transparent clean sea. Apart from this beach, you may choose the adjacent beach of Parthenos or the near by beach of Orkos.

A few meters far from the coast you will see the small skerry of Parthenos (the greek word for “virgin”), named after the small church dedicated to Virgin Mary that is found on it. It is an islet pretty popular for weddings; many couples come to get married here, within a fascinating environment and a romantic atmosphere.

Once at the settlement, you may walk up to the rocky height above the beach to enjoy the panorama around, with Heraklia, Ios Santorini, Antiparos and Paros and maybe Mykonos in the distance. It is from this rock that the locals in the past looked out the sea to warn the residents of the island when pirates’ boats appeared; the name “Mikri Vigla” (meaning in Greek “small lookout”) is due to this use. In fact, the rock of Mikri Vigla separates the nice beach of the settlement from the adjacent beach of Parthenos.

If you sail to the island of Parthenos, don’t miss to watch the shallow sea bed, where you may see the ruins of an ancient settlement, now covered by the sea.

In case of emergence you should address to the corresponding services of the capital town of Naxos, 16,5 kilometers to the North.

Access from the town of Naxos is possible by rented or private car and motorbikes. As the distance is not long, you may also use a taxi. If you reach the place by boat, the small port housing the fishing boats of the locals, is safe and available for mooring, provided your boat is not too big.
