Situated right after Alyko beach, the area combines the beauty of the sea and the inland beauty. The sandhills and the abundant cedar trees impress even the most demanding visitors. Pyrgaki is in general hardly ever crowded. In the area there are a few taverns and a few new-built hotels.
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.
