Naxos is a real paradise for lovers of water sports, especially windsurfing and kite surfing, as the summer winds that blow during the day create perfect conditions to enjoy these two waterspouts to their fullest.
Agios Georgios beach and its extension, Lagkouna, are the most popular meeting points for surfers of all levels from around the world. Here you'll find the Flisvos Sport Club for wind surfing, kite surfing and other water sports.
The beaches of Mikri Vigla (Parthenos), Plaka, Ammitis, Agios Prokopios and Agia Anna also offer a great scope for windsurfing. Advanced surfers will enjoy unique moments on the waves, while beginners will undergo their initiation into the waters with the help of experienced trainers at fully equipped schools that are on the beach.
An excellent choice for kite surfing is Mikri Vigla which is 15 km south of Naxos Town. Here, the wind blowing all day makes it ideal for flights and jumps. The team at Flisvos Kitecentre, which is located on the beach, provides kite surfing and wind surfing lessons in accordance with IKO's (International Kiteboarding Organization) rules and with the best equipment (tel. +30 6945 457407, www.flisvos-kitecentre.com).
