Syros Island

swimming in Ermoupolis

We are traveling next June with a few families - all with kids who love to swim. We are planning on spending some nights in Ermoupolis. Although we will take day trips out to the beaches is there any swimmable water in the capital? thanks

You can swim in the sea from the rocks below the Vaporia area of the town. There are steps leading down to a concrete area where you can sunbathe, and you can swim, as I did, in the sea there. There are steps leading into the sea - or it's deep enough for you to jump in from the edge of the rocks.

The water is perfectly clear and calm. You can see a photo on my Syros page:

It's the third photo on the main page, entitled: "Clear blue sea at Ermoupoli, Syros".
