Sikinos Page 1
Sikinos lies between Ios and Folegandros (Pholegandros). It has a land mass of 41 sq. km. and 41 km. of coast line. Its population is 300. It's a mountainous island about 110 km from Piraeus. You can stand on the western shore of Ios and see Sikinos.
Sikinos is a non-touristy island and an ideal spot for serenity. It has quiet beaches and little night life. The island is rated an "Ecosystem of European Importance" because of the wild pigeons, black-headed hawks, sea birds, monk seals, cat vipers, sand snakes and other animals. Wheat is grown here. Vines grow is the terraced valleys and there is fishing along the coast. This is a nice choice for a day trip from Ios or Folegandros, especially if you are in need of a rest after the night life in the more touristy spots.
