    Things to see and do

    Sikinos Episkopi

    The island of Sikinos, in Greece, is one of the Greek islands of the Aegean Sea and it belongs to the Cyclades islands group. This is a quiet and remote island, which is why holidays in Sikinos are wonderfully secluded. The capital of Sikinos island is Chora, constructed on the slopes of a mountain and offering amazing view to the Aegean Sea. Chora is a great sample of Cycladic architecture, with paved streets, white sugar houses and blue-domed churches.

    A small village is gradually developing around the port, but this is mostly a place with tourist facilities and accommodation. The sandy beach at the port is the most popular and organized beach of Sikinos island. The other beaches of the island are more secluded and can be reached on foot or by bus. Worth a visit are also the old Monastery of Episkopi and the small but interesting Folklore Museum.
