Naxos is a Greek island with an area of 429.79 square kilometers. and is 103 nm. from Piraeus. It is the largest island of the Cyclades, in the Aegean Sea. Traditionally, the first inhabitants of the island were the Thracians and the Pelasgians
As we understand from its name (Vigla) it was previously an observatory, probably because of the fear from pirates in Naxos. There are essentially two beaches: Limanaki and Parthenos, separated by a huge rock.
Both beaches are sandy and wonderful. The Parthenos beach is a meeting place for the friends of kitesurfing and windsurfing since weather conditions are ideal here for these kind of sports.
The special about these two beaches is the fact that while on the one beach you can enjoy the windless bath , on the other beach the sportsfans enjoy the strong winds!
In the area there are also some restaurants.
