Rudest owners

Sikinos is an amazing island and worth to go for a visit. I am a Greek that is living abroad and always enjoying my holidays back in the Greek islands. But last year we had a big problem and we had to cancel our trip to Greece. I called Lukas Hotel to cancel our reservation and hopping to get the deposit back (or to keep it for next year) but the owners were the rudest people I ever spoke with in my life. They hung up the phone lots of times, they spoke with the rudest language ever. I explained to them that I do not care about the 50 euro deposit but speaking like that to a tourist that was planning to visit their island for holidays was really bad. The island is really amazing, Greece is beautiful and Greeks are known for their hospitality. But I am sorry Greeks like that spoil the tourism and as I am Greek living abroad, I don't want to accept that. Please visit the island and stay away from rude people that can spoil your holiday. They are nice only if they will get their money otherwise they are terrible. Not to mention that it was definitely a tension in their restaurant as well. Everytime I was calling it was always an argument on the background... really not nice.

Pretty beaches to relax

Sikinos is a great island to visit. Two years ago, I took a couple of friends and we visited this Cycladic Island, after a wild week in Ios. We knew that Sikinos is a small island, there are only but a few places to stay, so we managed to book a great room in advance, Lucas Studios, very nice and organized. The centre of the island is lovely, with stone-made houses decorated with colored flowers. Hopefully, Sikinos has retained its natural quality along with traditional spirit. It is worth to trek to the Monastery of Episkopi, a Historical Byzantine monastery as well as the Folklore Museum which includes a lot of interesting products that depicted the old life of the islanders. You should know that Sikinos has a lot of pretty coves and secluded bays, but of course you have to explore the island in order to find them. The locals treated us very well and they were eager to help. Great vacations, my friends! Truly relaxing. I think we needed a couple of days in Sikinos after so much partying in Ios.

Sikinos in like a hidden treasure between Ios and Folegandros and it is recommended especially if you want to try a differend island for a while. Sikinoshas not so many taverns and clubs but those that already exist are just fine.

Regarding beaches, you must ask first since you can not find them all simply by going all round the port. Santorineika is the best to my opinion with crystal transparent water and there is only a path that can lead you there from Agia Marina where you can see also ancient city ruins. Just stay there to hear the sound of silence of a lost world that does not affront tourists as cash machine.

The locals are friendly in general, the current mayor is really a young joyful man with green thought for the development of Sikinos but maybe you will face problems in Agios Giorgis with some of them.

There is even free Wi-fi network (although sometimes the connection is lost) provided by the community and a couple of festivals are held in summer.

Refreshing holidays

Our week in Sikinos was the most refreshing holidays ever! We didn't do anything, we had nothing to see and the only we did was swimming, eating and sleeping! Sikinos is so small that you can go on foot (or on the back of a donkey as some locals do!) to beaches and everywhere. You will need a lot of walking on Sikinos, so go in early summer when it is not too hot. Get the boat and make the tour of the island. Step off the beaches, swim and wait for the next boat that will get you to the other. You will like especialy Malta beach but if it is too windy, the boat might not go there. If you are going for only a couple of days, stick to the beach at the port. It is sandy and safe. Do not expect any watersports on Sikinos, there is totally nothing, absolute calm. The only practise to do is walking. As for bars, forget about them... Go to bed early!

Romantic times

I have really nice memories from Sikinos as I first tried free camping there and I loved it since! We went there three summers ago by boat from Ios and stayed only two nights.

Calm Sikinos was a paradise after crowded Ios. Generally, I don't like big crowds but went to Ios following my friends. On the third day on Ios, me and my boyfriend packed our things and went on neighboring Sikinos to spend the last two days of our vacations.

We camped in the beach close to the port and could see the soft lights of Chora from there at night. Tried night swimming under the bright moon of August and woke up early because the sunlight awakened us. Aaaah, so romantic days! I miss them so much right now! Walking in Chora was also nice.

This is one of the most traditional Cycladic villages I have visited. Watch the sunset disappearing in the orange sea and eat ice cream. Such a romantic place for couples...

Just you and me

After two weeks of clubbing on Ios, we thought it would be a good idea to try a quieter island, so we picked up Sikinos. A friend of us had gone in the past and he said it was lovely. Indeed, it was a special island. No bars, no clubbing, no noise, no crowded beaches... Just you and me... and some old islanders... We spent only two days there and liked walking along Chora. This village had a very traditional vibe and some cafeterias with great views to the sea above. We go swimming only in Alopronoia, which is the port of the island. There are almost no means of transport on Sikinos, I don't know if there is a bus. We went from the port to Chora with out motorbike, otherwise we would walk or go by mule, as there are many mules on the island.

Our trip to Sikinos

We were on Ios for holiday this August and decided to rent a boat and go to the neighbourhing small island of Sikinos. Just an hour away. It was actually what we expected: a tiny, pure island with wonderful, isolated beaches and some backpackers. In fact, these backpackers had turned a beach into a nudist beach, so we avoided it! I believe the best beach was Malta and you can go by tour boat from the port or if you have your own boat, like we did. We didn't spend the night there, just went for a visit and in the evening we returned to Ios. I guess nightlife is not much on Sikinos, just a couple of cafeterias that we saw in Chora.

Pure nature and peace

Do not expect much from Sikinos, except for pure nature and absolute peace!! Our holidays there didn't last more than 5 days, which were enough to see all the sites of the island and relax. We did much walking on Sikinos to go to beaches and to go from Alopronoia to Chora and back. If you don't like walking, then take the boat from Alopronoia to the beaches and some islets nearby. We had rented a room in Alopronoia, which was surprising good and clean for such a tiny island. Sikinos is perfect for couples, not young people who like parties and nights out, as I don't think there is any club on the island.
