There are no historical sites, no ruins, no marble quarry, no temples, no monasteries. Instead, you have to thoroughly enjoy the small everyday events, like to meet the farmer with his cows down at Psili Ammos beach, like to try to get one of the donkeys to bray, like to try to find the way to that inaccessible beach that looks so fantastic from above, like to walk down to the port in the evening to drink a cup of coffee and a glass of Metaxa.

When you walk home to Chora in the evening it is usually pitch black outside, and extremely quiet. To walk the short distance and look up in the sky is absolutely amazing, the whole sky is full of stars. They are always there, but when it's dark, like it is on Schinoussa, one sees an infinite number of stars. It is magical!

The sunset is beautiful and may as well be considered as an attraction. Not to mention the beautiful sunrise. Another attraction is to walk down to the port when a large ferry approach. The harbour entrance is extremely narrow, so narrow that it seems to be impossible to go in with the big ferries. The ferries must turn in the roadstead and then reverse, it is only a few meters between the ferry and land, a real spectacle, whether you are on land or on board the ferry.

Ferries to Schinoussa.

To see the ferries arrive in the port is a real spectacle.
