Finikas settlement is one of the most popular seaside destinations of the island of Syros. Named after the ancient Phoenicians who used it as a port, being protected from the north winds, just like Kokkina beach right next, has been granted as the second natural port of the island after Hermoupolis’ port. An organized marina provides shelter for many yachts whereas a variety of services can satisfy its visitors (restaurants, taverns and tranditional cafeterias as well as modern ones, bakeries and patisseries, super market, car and bike rentals etc.) The area has a pharmacy store and a community clinic.
Agios Pantelehimonas (St. Pantelehimonas) is the central church of the area, where a number of cultural events take place organized by the local cultural society. Nautical activities also take place held by the Nautical Club of Syros.
On the sandy beach of Finikas with its clear water, you can find natural shadow beneath the almirikia trees, which grow there. A number of taverns right next to the waves can satisfy even the most peculiar visitors.
If you prefer a smaller and quieter beach, Kokkina right next to Finikas will be your destination. Kokkina beach is in a very short distance and is named after the naturally red colored rocks and pebbles that surround it.
