General Information about Sikinos Island, Cyclades
Sikinos, one of the most secluded islands of Cyclades, is geographically located between Ios and Folegandros. This is an alternative summer destination that attracts few visitors, even in high season. The port of Sikinos is only 4 km from Chora. The picturesque village of Chora amazes visitors from first sight with the white houses on the hill, the lovely chapels and the traditional kafenions.
The combination of colors with the natural beauty creates an ideal place for calm vacations. Explore the coasts of Sikinos and the secluded bay, either on foot or with the small municipal bus. A very interesting sight to visit in Sikinos is the historical site of Episkopi, which is actually a Byzantine monastery built over a Roman mausoleum.
