Although Sifnos is one of the most beautiful islands of the Cyclades, it has yet to be discovered by tourists. Its many picturesque villages, monasteries, hiking paths and clear water beaches are very well known in Greece. The island is also famous for its traditional pottery and delicious food.
Apollonia, its capital, has lost nothing of its traditional charm. You are just five minutes away from many shops selling local jewelry and pottery, as well as clothing and home furnishing. The town also offers restaurants serving regional or broadly ‘Mediterranean’ food, and a great nightlife with a full range of cafes, bars and clubs.
Kastro with its breathtaking views and Artemonas with its beautiful traditional architecture are two villages well worth visiting.
The monasteries of Profitis Ilias and Aghios Simeon offer a panoramic view of the whole island from above. The famous monastery of Chrissopigi, built on a rock by the sea, is another must! You can swim in the crystal clear waters of the sandy beach of Apokofto, next to Chrissopigi, or visit Platy Yialos, Vathi, and Fasolou. Afterwards, lunch at any of the local tavernas found on every beach.
There are numerous old paths that set out from this area towards the hills or the sea for those who love trekking.
If you are interested in the hiking trails of Sifnos, please ask us; we would be glad to provide more info.
