A pictorial guide of Syros, in the Cyclades (Aegean Sea), featuring embedded maps, useful information, a lot of photos, and all points of interest including beaches and utilities.

Syros is like no other island of the Cyclades. Mix of urban liveliness, seaside resorts and wilderness, with relatively few tourists, it fascinates those who take the time to explore it.

No pretty Cycladic village, but a city considered as the most beautiful of Greece. No endless beaches, but some popular resorts and a multitude of secret places. And two very different atmospheres between the south and north of the island.

Southern Syros will satisfy lovers of well equipped and easily accessible beaches, but you will also find many secluded and unspoilt beaches.

Northern Syros, very wild, is a paradise for hikers as well as for lovers of (almost) deserted beaches.

In between, the double town of Ermoupolis and Ano Syros, scattered on two hills, will impress your eyes! And it's even more beautiful at sunrise, viewed from the sea...

To use this guide, you don't need to be connected, except to get a route. It is fully iPhone compatible, but to get the best of it you should use it with an iPad!
