Skhinoússa is located at the centre of the Small Eastern Cyclades island group, south of Náxos and north-east of Irakliá. It is a tiny island with three villages: Hóra, Messaria and Mersini. It took its name after the bushy plant lentisk (Schino in Greek) that flourishes on the island. Mersini, the island’s port, is a haven for small boats, preferred by many across the Aegean; during the summer it is a popular mooring spot for sailing enthusiasts. 

With Mersini as a starting point, follow a beautiful hiking trail around the island (it will take you only 2 hours!), enjoy the unspoiled natural landscape and discover beautiful gardens, exotic palm trees and sun-kissed beaches along your walk that will steal your heart away!
