History of Ormos Kini

Ormos Kini has about 200 permanent residents. Although it sees a flurry of tourists every year (July-August), it is busy with tourists all through the year. You can find peace during the winter season. 

The village is mostly inhabited by fishermen. As for the history of Syros, settlement started here 5000 years ago. Many years ago Syros was a hub of commercial activity. It was also under the rule of Minoan Crete, Phoenicians, and the Mycenae. During the Ottoman period, Syros witnessed a new era where anybody could practice their religion and there was a reduction of taxes. Syros has been under the harsh rule in the past and it also witnessed drastic changes. But over the years, it has managed to become one of the most popular destinations for tourist activity. 

Kini Bay was awarded the ‘blue flag’ for its clean and excellent water. Tourists spend their time lounging on sun beds and eating delicious Aegean cuisine. Syros has indeed risen from ashes and left a positive impact on Greece’s reputation.
