Schinoussa is located in the Cyclades island complex and forms a refreshing shadow of Naxos. It’s a quiet island, characterized by its low arable land but with a plethora of enchanting sandy beaches. Schinoussa attracts more and more visitors yearly who want to enjoy a peaceful yachting holiday in Greece.

During your yacht charter in Schinoussa, you can visit Chora, which is only 1 km away from Mersini marina. You will there discover the Folklore Museum of Schinoussa, featuring a collection of tools and ornaments used by the locals, as well as the traditional, everyday costumes of the inhabitants. It is also worth visiting the church of Panagia Akathi, built with traditional Cycladic architecture, famous for its icon of the Virgin Mary. According to tradition, Schinoussa took its name from the plant Schino, otherwise known as lentisk, which thrives all over the island.

 An important point of historical reference is the Venetian’s conquest during the Middle Ages. This was when the Medieval Castle was built in Chora, but remains still well-preserved today. The Castle was exclusively used to protect the population from pirates.

Despite its small size, Schinoussa has a total of 13 separate beaches, one more beautiful than the other. Mersini, with golden sand and tamarisk trees, is conveniently located next to the port. Gerolimnionas is a quiet beach with deep and turquoise waters, located at the northwestern tip of the island. Psili Ammos is located at the eastern end of the island, characterized by its turquoise waters and fine sand dunes. These are just three of the many options you have to include to your yacht hire in Schinoussa. The serene beaches of Schinoussa offer the perfect day cruise. Alternatively, by renting a yacht, you have the luxury of organizing a three-day trip or a weekly trip to a nearby island (such as Ios, Iraklia, Koufonisia, and Amorgos). Finally, if you intend to start your journey from Naxos and end up in Schinoussa, you have the comfort to book the ideal yacht of your choice directly from Naxos.

Each year cultural and traditional events are organized in Schinoussa, with dancing, singing, and plenty of food. If you are lucky to attend any of them, you will have the luxury to taste some traditional dishes of the island, such as braised goat, lamb with vegetables, scorpionfish with spaghetti, vine leaves, and, above all, the famous local fava beans.
