Sikinos, the cycladic secret island

Sikinos is a small and quiet Cycladic island in the Aegean Sea. With charming views of the endless blue sea, a few little places to stay, beautiful tavernas and some historical places to visit, Sikinos is a great destination for those who seek holidays away from the crowds.

There are plenty of beautiful beaches with pebbles or sand. Saint Panteleimonas beach is a small bay with a cave and crystal blue waters and is definitely worth a visit. You can go to the beach either by boat or on foot.

The Temple of Episkopi is probably the most important monument on the island. It is about an hour walk from the Chora, the island’s capital. The Temple was built in the 3rd century A.D. as a Roman tomb monument. During the years it has converted into a monastery. The views from there are just spectacular.

Tip: Do not leave the island without tasting the delicious and with exquisite aroma local thyme honey.

    Do you want to keep Sikinos such a secret that you have to have a photo of Oia on Santorini (Photo By eirinika) at the top of the page?
