Over 20 years ago, a new sport, windsurfing, came to Greece. Nikos Kaklamanakis won the gold medal at the Olympic Games in this discipline. Since then, windsurfing competitions have been regularly held in Greece. If you are into windsurfing, then you should definitely visit the Cyclades where nature itself has created the ideal conditions for windsurfing. The best spots are Paros, Santorini, Milos, Mykonos, Syros, Naxos. Beginners can stop in Syros or Santorini and if you are an advanced windsurfer, you will probably enjoy Naxos and Paros with their wild waves.
If you are seeking for escape from hustle and bustle and want to spend a few days alone with the sea and the wind, we will be glad to offer you an individual windsurfing tour in Greece. We ensure you maximum comfort, professional instructors and the best windsurfing spots.
Windsurfing in Naxos
The wind in Naxos is quite strong and its powerful gusts attract professional windsurfers. The 1.5 lagoon is big enough and offers magnificent views as well.
The season lasts from May to November. Although it is generally believed that Naxos is more suitable for professionals, there are several tracks that even beginners can conquer. But at the main reef small waves can turn into three-meter giants.
The island offers plenty of surf schools. The most popular one is the school called Micro Vigla located 20 km from the airport. Here you will find everything that a windsurfer needs:
- Giant waves;
- Excellent hotels;
- Great restaurants;
- Vibrant beach bars;
- Different entertainment options for children;
- SPA centers and many other things that will make your holiday unforgettable.
At Micro Vigla, waves are smooth and not very high, which makes this spot a perfect place for beginners and those who come on holiday with children.
