Sikinos is one of the Greek islands which forms the Cyclades, an island group laying to the south east of the Greek mainland. Many ferry routes depart the port each day, heading to neighbouring Greek islands and Piraeus on the east coast of the mainland.
Sikinos is quintessentially Greek; whitewashed house shine underneath the powerful rays of the Mediterranean sun and luxurious beaches decorate the coastline in a wave of golden sands and tropical foliage. Bouncing clubs and exuberant bars are replaced by quaint cafes and picturesque walking trails; Sikinos may not be the ideal destination for partygoers, but if you’re looking for a relaxing time amid peaceful surroundings – it’s the place to be. Comprised of just two small villages – Chora and Kastro – the permanent population houses just over 300 people, showcasing the heavily tourist focussed atmosphere. Head there in the summer months and it will embody a hive of families, friends and couples, enjoying the tranquillity.
The whole island affords an assembly of looking spots, offering breathtaking views of the stunning landscape, but there are seldom places more beautiful than the charming harbour. Small, colourful yachts line the docks, resting near cool, welcoming tavernas and cafes typically serving delicious seafood fresh from the waters. The pristine paradise of Sikinos has enough natural beauty to satisfy any type of visitor, however, for an insight into the cultural history of the island, The Temple of Episkopi and The Monastery of Zoodohos are impressive pieces of architecture.
A bus service covers the entirety of the island, running fairly regularly throughout the day. There are also motorcycles for hire, and the obvious choice of walking is popular.
