Mikri Vigla is a beautiful beach located on the southwestern part of the island, some 16 km from Chora. Its name originates from when it was used as an observation post, called a vigla in Greek. Locals kept a look out for pirates trying to approach the island.

Mikri Vigla consists of two sandy beaches separated by an imposing rocky hill. The southern beach is called Sahara and the northern beach is called Parthena.

Parthena is considered one of the best beaches in the world for wind sports. It has some of the strongest and most consist winds in the Cyclades, making it a mecca for windsurfers and kite-surfers. Its international reputation draws many visitors from all over the world. It has sports clubs offering services to all levels, from beginner to advanced.

On the other side of the hill is Sahara beach. Sheltered from the wind, its an ideal place to relax and enjoy the sun. Although the beach isn’t organized, its golden sand and shallow, crystal clear water makes it an excellent choice for families.

Around the area of Mikri Vigla, you will find modern hotels and charming traditional taverns offering tasty local specialties.
