Activities

It’s worth visiting Sykia village (meaning “fig tree” in Greek), located 2 km away from the beach, among rocky mountains, which has retained its traditional character. Its architecture is strongly influenced by Mount Athos. The old school, the church of Saint Athanasius, the prehistoric castle, and the ruins of a Byzantine church are sites of unique beauty.

Simply visiting this beach is a sufficient excuse for a vacation in Sykia. There are several excellent coves nearby, including Linaraki, which is only 3–4 minutes away by foot, Limanaki, which is 2 minutes away, and Tourkolimnionas, which may be the greatest of them all.

Last but not least, the beautiful windmills on the beach, built in the mid-19th century, are definitely worth seeing. Hiking in the wonderful forest is a must.
