For the walker, Sikinos has reserved its best part: remains of ancient settlements, remote beaches, hard-to-reach caves, routes that reach the edge of towering cliffs, passages lost inland between small gorges, Byzantine churches scattered in the Sikinian countryside, as well as a rich flora and fauna protected by the Natura 2000 program. The hiker will get lost in the endless paths that plow the island and will discover that the old history of the place is written by the hand of nature and people all over Sikinos . A good way to start is to get the Sikinos hiking map.
Some typical routes are:
Castle - Alopronia: taking the old cobblestone that connected Chora with Alopronia. The cobblestone begins its descent behind the old Primary School. It meets the asphalt passing behind the "Thimonies" center. From there another path continues on the other side of the road.
Castle - Episkopi - Agios Panteleimonas - Alopronia: 13 km hike (around 4 hours).
Kastro - Malta: the path starts from the monastery of Zoodochos Pigi, passes near the helipad and reaches the Prophet Elias, whereupon the descent to the beach of Malta begins (6.5 km, less than 2 hours).
