Schinoussa Beaches

Schinoussa is endowed with many beautiful beaches.

Sandy or pebbly, they are all easily accessible, at distances requiring no more than 20 to 30 minutes on foot.

They are suitable for water sports (especially windsurfing) and spear gun fishing, while the coves on the southern and southeastern coast are considered good anchorages.

The nearby islets of Ofidoussa, Agrilos and Aspronissi have been designated as areas of particular natural beauty and are good for excursions and scuba diving.
