Sikinos Island, Greece.

To reach Sikinos, it is generally necessary to change ferries at Ios or Santorini. Direct connections to Athens are only twice weekly with G.A. Ferries (from Piraeus), and once a week with NEL Lines (from Lavrion). Throughout the summer, however, there are connections by regular ferry (SAOS Lines) to Ios and Santorini five times weekly.

eating

Sikinos Island, Greece.
