Excursions » Pyrgaki via Glinado and Vivlos (Tripodes)

Approaching Glinado (6Km from Naxos Town) is the 17th century Monastery of Agioi Saranta possesing some fine post-Byzantine icons.A few Kilometres on is the nice Agios Arsenios (8Km from Naxos Town) village, an extensively cultivated land.

Prior to the village of Vivlos, there are sign posts to the right towards Plaka Beach (Plaka beach can be easily accessed via Agia Anna). On the way to Vivlos, on the right, are the remains of a medieval tower and the Church of Agios Mattheos build on earlier Christian ruins. From Vivlos after some Kilometres is a signpost to Mikri Vigla.

Detour - to Mikri Vigla (18Km - from Naxos Town). A 3 Km (1 Km non-asphalt) road proceeds to a T-junction. The right part leads to a beautiful beach exposed to the North Winds (in other words, ideal for wind surfing), while the left road leads to a the begining of a magnificent, huge, coarse sand sea shore that sweeps all the way past Kastraki as far Alyko.This fine white sand beach is fantastic, well protected from the north winds and for those who wish to spend their lunch time here, there is a taverna.

Back to the main road route, there is a signpost to Alyko (19Km) from Naxos Town. The road edges the coastline which is broken up by three coves.

Pyrgaki (21 Km from Naxos Town) has excellent beaches and on the left of the road there is a sign post to Ayiassos Bay (5 Km from Ryrgaki). The track is rough but the bay is nice made up of golden sand.
