Sifnos: the beautiful Cycladic destination for every taste

Cyclades ● Sifnos ● 06 July 2017

Sifnos is a unique island of Cyclades, where you can combine both: relaxing vacations with your other half or fun and vivid nightlife with your friends. It is literally an island for every taste, a top destination, where white-washed houses, charming chapels at the edge of the cliff, cozy bars and golden beaches are prevailing.

The capital of the island is Apollonia Sifnos, which is built amphitheatrically around three hills. The village is picturesque, consisting of narrow, pebbled streets, elegant local shops, white arches and Cycladic houses with bougainvillea hanging on their walls. In Apollonia Sifnos, you can do everything. From morning coffee, lunch in a traditional tavern or a luxury restaurant to night walks, Chora of Sifnos is beautiful like a carte postal and interesting like a small town full of happy people. Early at night, there are many cocktail bars to enjoy romantic moments after having a stroll in the lovely streets of Chora, but after midnight, the scenery reminds of the liveliest islands in Greece, and the atmosphere is full of wild nightlife moments, alcohol and dance.


5 km from Apollonia Sifnos is located Kastro, the most beautiful spot of the island. It was the old capital of Sifnos and has been built in the ruins of ancient Sifnos. It has a strong medieval character, offers panoramic view of Aegean Sea and has as a symbol a lovely white chapel at the edge of the cliff. You can see there some ruins of the ancient city as well as Venetian wall fragments, and there is also a small archaeological museum that is worth visiting. In the area, there are many hotels, rooms to let, taverns and other tourist facilities to provide you the best holiday experience.

The main port of the island is located in Kamares Sifnos, a cozy seaside village with hotels, cafés and taverns. From there, you can take the boat and make the round tour of the island.

In many places on the island, you can admire the Ancient Towers of Sifnos, which were used from the ancient residents of the island as watch towers as well as protective buildings for women and children after several invasions during the 6th and 5th century B.C. that destroyed the island, while some date back to the Roman Times. The best-preserved towers of Sifnos are three, White Tower on the eastern side of Sifnos, Black Tower in Exambella Village and Tower of Katavati on the way to Vathy.

Chryssopigi Church

The beaches of Sifnos are not characterised by extraordinary beauty, but they are calm, unspoiled, lovely, relaxing, family-friendly and with golden sand. Chrissopigi is the most famous beach of Sifnos thanks to the amazing white monastery at the edge of the coast, while Vathy, Kamares, Platys Gialos and Heronissos are nice spots to spend your day under the warm sun and in the crystal waters of the Aegean Sea.
