Sifnos

Ιndulge your senses

Sifnos, the island of flavors, is the birthplace of famous poets, as well as award-winning chefs, like Tselementés. Unique traditional villages, organized or secluded beaches, and 227 churches spread around the island are waiting to be discovered.

The capital town

Apollonía, the capital town of Sífnos (also called Hóra), is built in the shape of an amphitheater over three hills in the center of the island. During your evening walk, pay a visit to the Folklore Museum.

In every small taverna or classy restaurant in Hóra you can sample some of Sifnos’ exceptional dishes cooked by chefs who know how to tempt our taste buds. When the night falls, set out to discover fancy lounge bars and the hottest nightclubs in the island, and dance the night away!

Worth visiting

The historic settlement of Kástro (meaning “castle”), inhabited since ancient times, is built over the ruins of ancient Sífnos, on an abrupt rock with a breathtaking view of the sea. A beautiful outdoor museum and one of the most picturesque villages in the island, Kástro stands out for its old houses with the wooden balconies, the ancient columns and the narrow courtyards.
Admire the picturesque little church of “Eftamártyros” (Church of Seven Martyrs), perched on a rock that seems to rise from the sea, and don’t forget to visit the Archaeological Museum.

Gastronomic delights:

Chickpea balls, Manoúra (cream cheese), Mastélo (lamb cooked in red wine and spices), Amigdalotá (small round sweets with pounded almond, rosewater and caster sugar), Honeypie.

Pottery designs

Sífnos is the center of pottery in the Cyclades since the first samples that were found here are dated back to the Early Cycladic period. The island’s clayey soil in combination with the continuous sunshine resulted in the development of the art of pottery on the island. Throughout the island, there are many pottery workshops where you can buy ceramics for domestic use, utensils and decorative items.

Crystal clear waters

Kamáres, the port of the island, is a sandy beach with trees and beach bars; Platís Yialós is the most cosmopolitan and buzzing beach in the island, whereas next to it lies Vathí, a sandy beach with shallow waters and many tavernas where you can enjoy fresh fish. The rocks in Chrisopigí, where also the homonymous Monastery proudly stands, are ideal for diving. If you’d like to rest under a cool shade, head to the next beach which is surrounded by saltwater-loving trees. If you find yourself in Kástro, follow down the path to “Eptá Mártyres”, and enjoy a leisurely swim.

Ways to travel:

To get to Sifnos Island choose a flight “Kyiv-Athens”. You can also get to Athens by bus taking the same destination “Kyiv – Athens”. Transfer from Athens Airport to the Port of Piraeus using a city bus or take a taxi. Travel by sea from the Port of Piraeus to Kamares Port of Sifnos Island. Take a bus, use a taxi, and rent a car in order to get to other towns of Sifnos Island from the port-town Kamares.
