A few words about Schinoussa beaches
Schinoussa has 18 very beautiful beaches unspoilt by human intervention, each so different from the other that they will satisfy even the most demanding traveller. Out of the 18 beaches 7 are the main ones which are also accessible by car. The others are accessible either by foot, swimming or by boat. The crystal clear waters and the diversity of the seabed are ideal not only for holiday-makers but also for snorkelers, fishers, swimmers and free-divers. If you like walking then you don't need a car. All beaches are no longer than 3km walking distance from The main village (Chora).
