Manna is a delightful 19th Century Farmhouse which has been cleverly restored to retain many of its traditional Greek features. This is one of Syros' hidden treasures with original tiled floors, wooden bread ovens and thick stone walls which keep the house cool in summer. The house is set amongst extensive gardens with pine trees and olive terraces surrounding the private plunge pool which is perfect for a quick dip. The two outside verandas are ideal for relaxing with a book, al-fresco dining or simply enjoying the spectacular views across the surrounding countryside. Reached by a small country lane, this is the ideal place to experience authentic Greece.
You should definitely visit Galissas and Kini beaches.The seashore is golden sandy and trees along the coast provide shade and lovely breeze. The beach has been awarded with the EU Blue Flag award, which assures the cleanness of its waters. Windsurfing is a very popular activity at this resort and there are also chances to practice other water sports. The sunsets here are the best on the island!
Ermoupolis isn't only the capital of Syros, but also the capital of the Cyclades and thus well-connected with Athens. The itineraries from Piraeus, the port of Athens, to Ermoupolis (Syros) are daily and the trip takes about 4 hours by normal ferry.
There is a daily morning flight from Athens (35 minutes) by Olympic Air. Regular hydrofoils connect Syros to Mykonos (1 hour) and Tinos (40 minutes).
Syros is unlike many of the better known islands. It is as yet unspoiled by tourism and has a large natural harbour in the local town of Ermoupolis (only 10 minutes away), which was once the main port of Greece and is lined with many impressive neo-classical buildings. The old town has a maze of traffic-free streets which are great fun to explore and to discover the city's charm. The great number of beautiful beaches will delight the sea and sand lovers - the nearest being only 10 mins away.
There are lots of local delicacies on Syros - Halva pie (a pie made of thyme honey and roasted almonds), loukoúmi (a delight made of water, starch and sugar), “loosa” ham, fennel sausages and the San Mihalis spicy cheese.
The nearest taverna is under 10 mins by car and the nearest large supermarket only 5 minutes away. A "must" is the closeby Ano Syros, a nice village almost attached to Ermoupolis. From the square of Ano Syros, you have a stunning view of Ermoupolis and the busy port. This is the coffee spot with the best vista on the island!
In the afternoon, go for a swim in Kini, a sandy beach about 10 km east of Ermoupolis. Lovely tavernas and cafeterias can be found by the beach and many tourist facilities. Although this an organised beach, it still remains unspoilt by tourism.
To the south of the island are two lovely fishing villages - Finikas and Poseidonia - both of which have lovely beaches and tavernas offering fresh fish and traditional dishes.
