For visitors to the island looking for a vantage point to take in the island's magnificent scenery then the Church of Panaghia is located on the top of a hill and offers great views of Chora and the island's west coast. There are a number of great beaches on the island but visitors should note that all of them are fairly difficult to reach. Some can be reached after a bit of a walk whereas others can only be accessed by boat. The two beaches that can be reached by car are the beaches at Karavostasi and Angali.
The island can be reached by conventional ferry, Highspeed ferry or Flying Dolphin from Piraeus, Rafini, the other islands of the Cycladic islands, Crete, Rhodes and the rest of the Dodecanese islands and the East Aegean Islands.

The Greek island of Sikinos is one of the Cyclades group of islands and lies between the islands of Ios and Folegandros. Unlike many of its Greek island neighbours, Sikinos does not attract large numbers of visitors and therefore has managed to retain a great deal of its Greek charm. Chora is the island's capital and is one of the smallest and most picturesque villages in the Cyclades and has traditional Cycladic architecture and is built on the slopes of a mountain and comes complete with stunning views of the Aegean Sea. Popular attractions on the island include the Monastery of Episkopi which was first thought to be an ancient temple of the God Apollo but is now known to have the signs of Roman mausoleum architecture. It was built in the 3rd century AD and was modified to a Christian church, complete with a dome and bell tower, in the 17th century.
From the port is Sikinos, ferry services operate to the port of Piraeus with a crossing time of around 3 hours and 30 minutes by high speed ferry and 7 hours and 30 minutes by conventional ferry. Sikinos is also connected by boat with the islands of Folegandros. Ios, Santorini, Serifos, and Sifnos.
