|THE BEACHES AND NATURIST BEACHES OF THE ISLAND OF SIKINOS IN THE CYCLADES IN GREECE|
There are several good beaches on the south coast of Sikinos (Agios Nikolaos Beach and Agios Georgios Beach) that can also be reached by caïques (traditional wooden boats) from the small harbour of Alopronia. Alopronia itself also has a nice large and sandy beach. This is the only organized beach of the island, with a couple of umbrellas and sunbeds and with tavernes. There are also trees if you want to lie down in the shade. For all other beaches it is wise to bring your own water and food.
Agios Georgios Beach in the southeast can be reached by car or on foot over paths leading from Alopronia and Chora. It is the largest beach of the island. There are no amenities (in high season I hear there is a taverna), but there are some trees where you can find shade.
In between Agios Georgios beach and Alopronia lies Agios Nikolaos Beach, which can also be reached on foot. A short walk north of Agios Georgios beach you can find Malta Beach, which is also the site of some ancient ruins. Malta is a small cove with sand and pebbles. Here there are no trees for shade.
