Skepsi beach in the south lies below the road from Agios Kirykos to Xylosyrti. It takes its name from the statue placed right beside the beach.
Designed by an Ikarian artist, it depicts a mother sitting pensively, holding her head as she gazes out to sea, yearning for her child to return from foreign lands. The thought is always in expatriated Ikarians.
Tip! The beach has rocks and some sand. It is very long, without umbrellas and sun loungers. There’s a shower for people on the beach. The location is ideal for easy and quick access from the centre of Agios Kirykos.
Access is easy on foot, by bicycle or with your own transport, as it is located below the main asphalt road, a short distance from the island capital, where there are many shops, restaurants, cafes and accommodation.
