KITE & WINDSURF
Near Hidden Hill, at the Glyfada beach in an unspoiled location, with long sandy beach and crystal clear turquoise water you will find one of the best Kitesurf clubs in Naxos.
Naxos is well known in Europe for water sports, consistent wind conditions and specially during summer time because of the ”Meltemi” effect.
North wind is the most common and it’s side shore that makes the kite spot ideal to learn kite boarding, wind surfing or SUP.
Glyfada beach is never crowded so the kitesurfing lessons for beginners are very safe and comfortable as they separate from independent kiters. That makes the spot very safe for your first steps into learning kite boarding. Another unique feature is that it’s the only beach on the Island that combines relaxation and recreation.
Because of the size and shape of the bay, families or the individuals swimmers, can enjoy as much the beach as the kitesurfers.

Kitron is a citron liqueur produced on the Greek island of Naxos. It is made from the fruit and leaves of the citron tree, which is similar to the lemon tree but stronger and slightly different in taste.
Kitron comes in three varieties. The green variety is sweeter and contains less alcohol. The yellow variety is the strongest and has the least sugar. Clear Kitron is somewhere in between.
Citron fruits and leaf of Naxos, are used in the production of Kitron.
Until recently, it was difficult to find Kitron outside Naxos due to a shortage of citron trees , so you can’t miss the opportunity to visit the distillery in the village of Halki, which was established in 1896 and is still operating in the same way.
Enjoy iced old in shots after meal, with crushed ice as an aperitif and with mixers in cocktails.
