Island Hopping Sikinos


From :€

SIKINOS

The name of the island originated from Sikinos, the son of the king of Lemnos. In antiquity, it was called OINOE due to the production of wine.A coin was found in excavations; on one side, there was an engraved grape cluster, and on the other, a bee! A herb called ‘despoinovotanaki‘ grows on the island, and according to myth, if a couple in love tries it, their love will last forever!

The attractions of the island are as follows:

  • The CASTLE in Chora, built in the 15th century, worth exploring.
  • The women’s monastery of Zoodochos Pigi, built in 1690, located in Chora, which was a fortress and refuge for residents from pirates.
  • The Byzantine temple of Episkopi, built on a Roman mausoleum from the 3rd century BC. The temple is of great archaeological value and is protected by the “Natura Europa” network.
  • Windmills
  • Sea Caves in the northwest part of the island: Drakofrydi, Drakospilia, and Mavri Spilia. The largest is located below the monastery of Zoodochos Pigi. Access is ONLY by boat.
  • Manalis Winery for tasting local wine.
  • The unique bookstore “Simatologion” in Chora.

All the beaches have crystal-clear waters, even those within the harbor/Alopronoia.

Access by boat:

  • The beach of Agios Panteleimon is a tourist attraction with an open CAVE for shade.
  • Santorinika for diving
  • Agios Georgios
  • 3 neighboring rock islets of unique beauty such as: Kardiotissa, Kalogeroi, Adelfia.
