  •  Destination

A few words about the Cycladic sanctuary…

The small Cyclades complex of islands are of rare charm and are frequently referred to as the gems of the Aegean sea.

More inclusively, Schinousa is conveniently located at the heart of the complex surrounded by islands such as Naxos, Koufonisia, Keros, and Iraklia which protect the petite island from the Meltemi winds of the Agean Sea, making it the perfect ground for our outdoor adventures.

There are just a few motor - vehicles on the island as they are basically of no necessity. All distances are short and trails are of such allure that you just do not want to stop hiking. Stone alleys, white houses and of course the Aegean sea make up a canvas of unique grace.

Furthermore, at the end of a day full of hiking its unique terroir, paddling the pristine waters, and exploring the remote corners, the island traditional cuisine definitely rewards you, offering dishes such as the renowned fava and other local specialties.

Finally, regular ship schedules to and from the island make it easy to access for those who wish to just make a short visit out of Schinousa, or experience it as the end destination of their summer vacations and dive into the island tradition, serenity, and exquisite natural beauty.

 

  • Accommodation

There are two - and three - bed rooms available for your stay located at the village of Schinousa Island, within a ten minute walk from the starting point of our daily activities.

 

  • Activities   

 

Sea Kayaking

The experience of a sea kayak tour is truly unique and it does not demand for any prior experience. During a short preliminary course you will be introduced with the kayak and necessary gear, paddling techniques and safety procedures, at the end of which you will be ready to start cruising. Our mission is to explore the island’s coastline and truly enjoy its remote beaches.

 

Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP)

All the way from cruising the quite waters of a protected gulf to the challenging crossing of rough waters and surfing of big waves, SUP uniquely combines athleticism and leisure. That is the reason why its popularity among water sports enthusiasts is rising at such a fast pace around the world. Easy and fun at its first steps but at the same time of infinite challenge and growth potential, SUP promises to blow your mind from the very beginning.

Right on the island Tsigouri beach and only a few yards from the seafront rises Schinousa spectacular rock - climbing site with 27 routes, of all difficulty levels.
