Jewels in the Crown of Greece: Sikinos

sikinosparathiro1(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   Although unspoiled by mass tourism, Sikinos is anything but a tiny, forgotten island. On the contrary, it has opted for an alternative development.  It offers few, small beaches, while in the town of Hora, local architecture is exemplarily preserved. As a mode of transport, cars are not fit for Sikinos, so one must try riding donkeys, or just hiking.  Last but not least, residents of Sikinos contribute to the island’s magic: an active community, which has revived the old vineyards, has set up a beekeeping cooperative and even operates a recycling programme.  Kathimerini Daily: Sikinos opts for a different way to develop; TheGreektravel.com: Sikinos
