Mikri Vigla on Naxos island was used as an observation point during Frankish rule, designed to provide advance warning against pirates approaching the island. These days it rates as one of the most gorgeous beaches on the island. A rock divides the beach into two parts, nicknamed “Limanaki” on the north side and “Sahara” on the south side. This spot is ideal for windsurfing and is considered the island’s best location for kite surfing as the bay is sheltered and winds are suitable for flights over Naxos’s beaches.

Chalki was once the capital of Naxos and perhaps the most picturesque village on the island. Decked in renovated, neoclassical buildings, narrow stone paths, and traditional cafes and restaurants, Chalki was a personal favorite. Be sure to check out Vallindras Distillery, where the local liqueur, Kitron, was once produced. Today the Distillery operates as a visiting hall, free of charge, where visitors can learn all the secrets of liqueur distillation as well as try the famous Naxos Kitron liqueur. After your liqueur tasting, wander through the quaint streets of Chalki and follow the signs to Agios Georgios Diasoritis a Byzantine Church nested amongst local farms before making your way back to the village to have a well deserved meal at Giannis Tavern.
