DINE IN AN UNFORGETTABLY SERENE SEASIDE SETTING

Sample an array of dishes made from extraordinarily fresh ingredients, including harbour-dried octopus, flavourful Greek salads, and sea-urchin spaghetti. Tuck into a refreshing ice cream dessert just as the sun sets, for an incredibly magical and romantic experience you won’t forget in a hurry. With a wonderful variety of locally produced wines to accompany your meal, every dining experience in Syros is a true delight.

EXPLORE ERMOUPOLI ON YOUR SAILING GETAWAY

Bursting with old mansions, white houses, and neo-classical architecture, a stroll through Ermoupoli is intriguing; you’re never quite certain what lies around the next corner or down the next winding, narrow street. Enjoy wandering around the town’s Archaeological Museum and taking in the atmosphere at some of the beautifully constructed churches before stopping to enjoy a leisurely drink and a bite to eat underneath the palm trees outside one of the cafes on Miaoulis Square.

RELAX ON ONE OF THE WHITE SANDY BEACHES

Lounging on one of the island’s many sandy shores and taking in the spectacular views over the ocean is always an indulgently relaxing experience, best enjoyed with the company of a great book and a late afternoon cocktail. Stay ocean-side until sundown to enjoy a sweeping panoramic Greek sunset, filling the sky with rich orange and pink tones.

ENJOY LIFE AT YOUR OWN PACE

The beauty of Syros is that, however you choose to spend your time, you can enjoy the island at your own pace. With tranquil beauty at every turn, from the spectacular Apollo Theatre, to which opera companies travel from the world over to perform, to the informative and wonderfully curated museums detailing the island’s rich history and culture. Wherever you choose to go, Syros will pique your interest and ensure this region of Greece cements itself in your memories for years to come.
