Galissas Beach Syros: Galissas is the most popular beach resort on the island of Syros, located approximately 5 km from Ermoupolis, the island's capital town. It is actually a small bay; the waters are safe, thus ideal for families with small kids.
The seashore is golden sandy and short trees along the coast provide some sort of shade. The beach has been awarded the EU Blue Flag award, which assures the cleanness of its waters. Windsurfing is a very popular activity on this resort and there are also chances to practice other water sports.
Many accommodation options also lay by the seaside as well as traditional taverns, cafes and beach bars. Another beach, Armeos beach, is within a walking distance from Galissas and can be reached following a narrow path, after you pass the church of Agia Pakou.
