Sikinos on Google Maps.
Sikinos, a largely uninhabited island whose inhabitants live by fishing. An island that lives with slow and simple rhythms. It is certainly not the island for those who search nightlife and crowded beaches. Sikinos has only one road that connects the four villages of the island. The tourist life takes place in Alopronoia port of arrival of ferries that connect it with the rest of the archipelago. An island for those who love simple things, unspoiled nature, an island for peolpe looking for traces of the ancient Cycladic atmospheres, excellent dinners in restaurants and long walks to enjoy the island in all its harsh beauty.
