Schinoussa (Island)



Welcome to Schinoussa!

This island is part of the “Lesser” Cyclades, called that due to limited ferry service and very small populations. They offer an alternative to mass tourism, plush resorts, and throbbing nightlife. However, they are being discovered of late, so you can expect to find some crowds (given their small size!) during the high summer months of July and August.

You will find on each of these little gems simplicity, sunshine, great beaches, and pretty walks. Just pack a couple of bathing suits, one pair of comfy walking shoes, a pile of books, and plenty of sun block, and come visit the “Lesser” Cyclades. On this page we profile Schinoussa. If we have piqued your interest to “discover” more about the other three islands, please check under their individual titles, Iraklia, Donoussa, and Koufonissia.

Schinoussa’s heavily indented coastline offers a wide choice of many excellent beaches on this small island of low hills. Boats arrive at the wee port of Mirsini, which is also one of the island’s excellent beaches. The main town, Chora, is located right in the center of the island, and from here you can walk to every beach along small trails and donkey paths, as well as to the tiny village of Messaria.

Total year-round population is less than 200, and all tourist services (!) are located here, including a few restaurants, tavernas, and bars. Other excellent beaches worth exploring (and within relatively easy walking distance), include Tsigoura, Livadi, Almyros, Psili Ammos, and Kiouliou. However, you must remember to take your picnic with you wherever you venture … these beaches are not filled with tavernas and sun beds!
