It has a picturesque port, and a pretty church dedicated to Agios Nikolaos.
There are no cash points in the village but there is a bakery, mini-market, and a few tavernas and bars. There is also a small museum of Ikarian art in Armenistis village.

The main north coast port of Ikaria is the settlement of Evdilos – about 40 kilometres northwest of Agios Kirikos.

There are several tavernas with lovely vistas nearby.
