MORE ABOUT SIKINOS GREECE
Sikinos in Greece is a secluded island of the Cyclades, situated between Folegandros and Ios. Tourism has yet to gasp itself upon this island, thus it remains unspoiled and suitable for relaxing holidays away from the crowds.
The island's capital is Chora. Built on the slopes of a hill, Chora boasts a beautiful setting and a breathtaking view of the Aegean sea. Chora is a great sample of traditional Cycladic architecture, as it has whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and narrow alleys.
Most of the island's hotels are located in the area around Sikinos port, where there are many shops and taverns as well.
At the port you will find the most popular organized beach of the island, while the rest of its beaches are rather secluded and can be reached either on foot or by bus.
