We are spending a day in Syros in August as part of a cruise. We would like to spend a few hours on a beach and swimming in the sea. Can anyone please recommend a beach near to the port and how to get there, preferably by public transport. I believe we are docking at Ermoupoli

Thanks. JJ

Kini or Galissas. Both 15 mins by taxi. 12 Euro each way. Both have nice restaurants if you fancy lunch.

I love Kini too, but if you only have a limited time, you must explore Ermoupoli and Ano Syros thoroughly, as it is (Imo) a wonderful town.

For swimming in Syros, by far your best bet is to take the bus (ask; it is right there where the boats set the passengers out) and go to Poseidonia (Agathopes beach) or Galissa. Both have excellent beaches and well worth the half hour bus ride.
