Schinoussa beaches

Despite the small size of Schinousa it is strewn with beaches that are quite different from one another, large or small, crowded or secluded, all are wonderful with their Aegean blue sea and golden sands. In addition to the beaches there are many hidden coves with secluded beaches around the island that you can discover yourself if you like adventure.

The beach of Almyros is after Fountana and at a distance of about 2km from Chora. It is quite large and it is separated in two by a rocky outcrop in the middle. It is a very good choice for families with small children because of the shallow waters. At Almyros you will also see windsurfers due to the north eastern winds. Sand and trees compose the picture of the landscape. There is a small beach bar with snacks.

Avlaki tou Papa

A small beach only 15 meters long at a distance of only 3km from Chora which is approached first by dirt road and then by trail. This is a good sea bed for snorkeling spear fishermen.

Agios Vasilios

This is a privately owned peninsula where the approach is forbidden. It is perhaps the very best beach on the island. The owners have been accused of illicit trade in antiquities and there is a court case pending. It can be approached only by boat and it is really worth the effort.

Also a minute beach of only 15 meters with a rocky beachfront and no trees but has turquoise waters and a great seabed which makes it ideal for snorkeling spear fishermen. This is one of the most beautiful beaches of the island but a little difficult to approach because you have to walk along a dirt road and then a narrow trail to get there. It is 3km from Chora and the route is very scenic.


The third in-a-row cove following Aligaria and Gagavi and is about 40 meters long whose access is also by foot (about 25min.) it has a sandy beach surrounded by rocks with a good sea bed.

Mersini (Piso Amos)

This is a picturesque little waterfront at the back end of the harbour with a length of about 60 meters. Well protected from the winds with a few trees, a beautiful beach with crystal clear, turquoise waters which is not too quiet since it is the harbour beach.

Psili Amos

Psili Amos is one of the most beautiful beaches of Schinousa. Its wonderful fine sand covers the whole beach and even the surrounding hillocks; along with its crystalline waters these compose a magical picture. Its only minus is that it is exposed to the north winds.


This is a deserted cove with no beach sand at a distance of 2,2km from Chora. It is an old pirate hideout and nowadays a favorite spot to drop anchor. At the start of the journey there is an asphalt road followed by a dirt road and then a trail which gets progressively tougher to the end. This is a good route for those that love a walk.


Is the most popular beach of Schinousa it is about half a kilometer south of the capital and can only be approached by foot. It has a large, golden sandy beach, clear waters and many trees that grow the length of the beachfront which offer their shade to the swimmers. It is well protected from the north winds due to its position. It is far away from the road and is ideal for families with children. Here you will find a restaurant and café.
