Mikri Vigla Beach

Naxos is an island of Cyclades, bathed by the azure waters of the Aegean Sea. Its coastline provides shelter to those who seek a place to relax, as well as for those in search of thrilling water sports. Among the most popular yet tranquil beaches on the island of Naxos, Mikri Vigla beach offers the ideal combination of serenity and modern facilities.
Situated on the southwestern part of the island, Mikri Vigla is a beach of extraordinary beauty and unique natural surroundings. Its name reveals its prior purpose, since Vigla means observatory and Mikri stands for small. So this beach used to be a small observatory for the islanders, in avoidance of hostile intrusions from the sea. There is a steep rock separating Mikri Vigla into two smaller coves, Limanaki and Parthenos. This is where the locals hid and gazed at the open seas.
The beach is fully organized, with sunbeds and umbrellas making your stay there even more pleasurable. The soft silky sand of golden color and the transparent waters have transformed it into an idyllic destination for honeymooners, couples in love and undoubtedly for youngsters and families alike. Water sports enthusiasts may indulge in kite surfing and wind surfing, while there are beach bars and restaurants for you to grab a bite or quench your thirst over a cold, refreshing cocktail! The view from the beach is purely mesmerizing, with the horizon fading away and mixing all these beautiful colors together.
Soak up the sun and dive in the crystal clear waters of Mikri Vigla beach, enjoy the cool sea breeze fondling your cheeks and the saltiness on your lips. Whether you are in for the relaxing part or the adrenaline, Mikri Vigla in Naxos is an excellent choice within small distance from your private sanctuary at Apricot and Sea Luxury Villas!
