Sikinos, Greece

Sikinos is located about midway between Ios and Folegandros in the Cyclades island group of Greece. Sikinos has so far remained quiet and relatively undeveloped in contrast with more popular island destinations. There are two villages located on Sikinos, Alopronia, the harbor for the island, and Kastro, which is considered one of the most beautiful villages in all the Cyclades.

There are many ancient ruins to be seen on Sikinos, as well as many taverns. The Zoodohos Pigi is a monastery that was built on the peak of a rock, and looks much like a castle from a distance.

Sikinos has, through the centuries, held on to its peacefulness and traditional culture, and makes a wonderful visiting spot for those looking for serenity and authentic Cycladic culture and tradition.
