The island of Syros is just 2 and a half hours by fast ferry from the port of Pireaus (central Greek port), a 4 hour journey by onventional ship and only 25 minutes by plane. Situated only 11 km from Ermoupolis the capital city of Syros and of the Cycladean island complex, on the southern coast of Syros is the seaside resort “Megas Gialos” which is one of the most beautiful resorts on the island.


“Megas Gialos” is characterized by its crystal clear waters and idyllic sandy beach, which is lined with trees that provide shade for those who wish to avoid sitting in the hot summer sun. Family owned and operated, our well-organised complex of rooms and apartments to let “Manos”, is only 100 meters from the beach of “Megas Gialos”.


The island`s local transportation system, which consists of buses running every 30 minutes, provides safe and inexpensive transportation to and from all the resorts on the island for those who choose not to rent a vehicle.
