~~~ SPOT INFO ~~~
A HIDDEN GEM RIGHT ON THE BEACH OF THE MIKRI VIGLA KITE SPOT!
Look out for our flags and our white beach tower.
In July and August there are several buses from Naxos harbour and airport to Mikri Vigla, as well as taxis. However, the best way to get around in Naxos is definitely by car. We are situated only about 12km from the ferry port and 9km from the airport.
Thalasea Sports Naxos is located directly on the sandy beach of the beautiful Parthena Bay in Mikri Vigla. In the rare occasion of no wind you can appreciate the crystal clear, turquoise waters of the long, sandy beach, enjoy a nice swim or go for a SUP or canoe trip to the nearby church island, which the beach is named after. You might even spot one or two of the local turtles, who seem to love this place at least as much as we do!
As soon as the Meltemi wind switches on, this part of Mikri Vigla turns into kite- and windsurfers’ paradise from one moment to another!
At our fantastic spot we are lucky to have some of the strongest winds in the Cyclades, created by a venturi effect that is formed by the squeeze between Naxos and the neighboring island of Paros. Come check out this magical place that every watersports enthusiast should visit!
WIND CONDITIONS & SPOT DESCRIPTION
The Meltemi is a strong northerly wind which generally hits our kite spot on Parthena Beach from a side-onshore direction – ideal for practicing kitesurfing in safe conditions!
Naxos is a natural playground for kiteboarders and windsurfers thanks to its wide, shallow bay and the Meltemi, a seasonal climatic system that creates great wind throughout the summer (June till September), but often also in May and October. This strong and stable wind is great for kiteboarders and windsurfers! It’s reliable too, with over 25 windy days a month during the summer.
The wind usually starts in the morning around 10 am, strengthening during the afternoon to 5-6 Beaufort, before dying out at sunset. However it is not uncommon for the Meltemi to continue blowing day and night for a week or more, allowing you to sneak in an early morning session or to ride all the way into the sunset and beyond! Small kite days!
