Sikinos belongs to the Cyclades complex and is located among the clearly most developed tourist islands of Folegandros and Ios. The island had three settlements: Alopronoia (port), the Village and the Castle (capital of the island). Sikinos extends at 41,676 square kilometers and has a population of about 300 inhabitants. It is a fairly mountainous island with the main mountains Troulos (553 m.), Agios Mama (549 m.) And Agia Marina (450 m.).
The name Sikinos according to Greek mythology comes from Sikinos, son of Thoantas, king of Lemnos, and grandson of Bacchus and Ariadne.
Sikinos in ancient times was famous for its vineyards and for this reason the island was formerly called "Oinoi".
Sikinos is just 100 nautical miles away from the port of Piraeus and the journey by boat takes about 8 hours.
