Mikri Vigla

In Mikri Vigla we come to the circular road, which starts from Hora, passing through the villages of Glinado, Agios Arsenios and Tripodes and ending up in the south at Pyrgaki. The rock of Mikri Vigla, which separates the sandy beaches of Parthenos and Mikri Vigla, at one time was used as a watch out point for pirates (a vigla is a small look-out tower).

Today this area is used for surfers who cat across the sea between the beaches of Orkos, Mikri Vigla and the islet of Parthenos. Because of the perfect weather conditions the beach of Parthenos has become a meeting place for surfers from all over the world. Mikri Vigla beach with its white sand and crystal, clear water, stretches as far as the eye can see. All of this area is perfect for quiet idyllic holidays, far away from the crowds.

About Mikri Vigla: The rock of Mikri Vigla (“little lookout”), which separates the beaches of “Parthenos” and “small port of Mikri Vigla” and is in southwest side , in a quiet area 20km away from Naxos town.

The cape separates two beaches, the first one from the north-side it is called “Parthena” (the name was given from a little church “Panagia Parthena= Virgin Mary” that is building on a small rock-island opposite from the cape and selebrate 40 days after the Eastern) and it is a big sandy beach with sand that seems like rise and

The rock of Mikri Vigla (“little lookout”) was used from the local people during the centuries, like a lookout. Always somebody stay on the top of the rock and in case that he could see a piratical boat he opened a fire that the closed areas could see and the transferred this signal which the same way to the rest island and so all the location was prepare against the enemies.
The weather in the area is calm, except during July and August.

The Island of Naxos
Naxos is the biggest and most fertile island of the Cyclades.
Its rich geographical relief has created dramatic changes of scenery. High mountains, fertile valleys, plateaus, springs, rivers, caves, huge beaches, sand dunes with cedar trees growing on them, all existing harmoniously on this small piece of earth.           

Naxos is one of the few islands, which has been inhabited continiously since ancient times (end of the 4th millennium B.C.) till today.
It has been possible to gather information about the history of the Aegean from traces left behind from each historical period, along with unique monuments which are scattered all over the island.
Naxos has the cosmopolitan atmosphere of a modern tourist resort, but at the same time has kept its traditional colour and it's local culture.
Hora (the main town) is a harbour and the administrative centre of the island. It is a modern town, which offers all kinds of facilities. There is a Health Centre, banks, a very good market place and lots of restaurants, bars and cafes. It has a lively nightlife, not only during the summer months, like most islands, but all the year round.

It's famous beaches on the south western side of the island, which are made up of kilometers of white golden sand, are being developed rapidly, but at the same time still maintain some of the atmosphere of the seventies when they were discovered by the "flower people".
However for someone to really get to know Naxos, he must visit the inland areas, the mountain villages, to walk the paths which crisscross the island, to listen to the violin and the lute at one of the local festivals and to get drunk on the island's energy.
Ladies and gentleman, welcome to Naxos.
