The sandy beach of Delfini (“dolphin” in Greek) is a wonderful beach with a unique exotic atmosphere, situated almost at the middle of the western coast of the island, northern to Kini, from which it is some 2 kilometers far away. The distance from Hermoupolis is some 11 kilometers to the Northwest. Well protected from the northern summer winds, this lovely beach, one of the most famous of the island, has safe and calm sea and is rather well organized, offering sufficient facilities. No accommodation facilities are available at the beach, but it is for swimming, sunbathing and sea sports within a beautiful landscape that you will choose it. Eating is not a problem here; a few taverns at the sea front offer gorgeous fresh fish and a variety of local dishes.
The industrial museum of Syros is located next to the neoclassical buildings of Ermoupoli, close to the industrial zone. Visitors can see pictures of local painters depicting the island in the 19th century, products of the women’s association from the early 20th century and a digital representation of public and industrial buildings.
The beach of Kini is extended along the homonymous tourist resort situated at a distance of 9 kilometers western to Hermoupolis. The settlement offers many alternatives for accommodation and other high quality services and a wonderful environment to those who choose the place for swimming or for a longer staying.
The long sandy beach of Galissas is extended in front of the homonymous popular and cosmopolitan resort situated at a distance of 9 kilometers southwestern to Hermoupolis. The settlement offers many alternatives for accommodation and high level facilities to the visitors and swimmers.
Going northwards from Delfini you will find the beach of Grammata, an ideal place for solitary swimmers and for those wishing to relax in an atmosphere of calmness and discretion. Of course is not organized; no umbrellas, no taverns, only the sea and the sun.
The tiny beach of Lotos, in front of the small homonymous settlement southern to Kini, is situated at a distance of 10 kilometers western to Hermoupolis. This sandy and pebbly beach is not organized at all, but is very close to Kini which offers any kind of facilities.
