Alyko, located in the southwest of Naxos, is approximately 21 km away from Naxos Town. It is one of the most beautiful beaches of Naxos, with white sand and a forest of cedar trees. Access by asphalt road all the way. Few resorts and taverns in the nearby area. Local transportation is quite problematic, so visitors who decide to stay there should also rent a car or motorbike unless of course they desire to spend most of the time in the area without moving a lot.
The incredibly beautiful beach resort of Mikri Vigla is located 18 kilometres away from the capital and consists in two wonderful sandy beaches separated by an impressive hill. The northern beach of Mikri Vigla is wonderful, with soft golden sand and crystalline turquoise waters and is blessed by the meltemi (north winds specific to the Cyclades) which make it an ideal place for wind/kitesurfing.
