Sifnos belongs to the Cyclades islands group and sits in the heart of the Aegean sea, close to Milos and Serifos islands.
Boasting its authentic Cycladic architecture, Sifnos island is dotted with cubic whitewashed houses, over 300 (!) beautiful churches, dovecotes, and little earthenware shops.
The island oozes a fairytale charm that makes it feel like it’s a world away from the mainland!
What it is mostly famous for is its gastronomy! Home to the famous Greek chef Nikolaos Tselementes, Sifnos has undoubtedly amazing food! You can taste the yummy local recipes, such as capper salad, chickpea soup, and mastelo at its excellent restaurants and taverns.
One of the best things to do there is to visit its quaint villages, especially if you want to experience the essence of the island. Kastro, Artemonas and the capital town Apollonia are total musts!
Get lost in the narrow alleys of Kastro, eat the best local pastries in Artemonas and have a taste of the cosmopolitan side of the island in Apollonia… Every village is unique!
And what can we say about the island’s beaches? Their beauty is unreal!
Escape the summer heat and take a dip at Chrisopigi beach, under the homonymous whitewashed church, at the cosmopolitan Platis Gialos or at the sandy Vathi beach, followed by a seafood meal, or visit Kamares beach, where the island’s port lies!
Ideal for families and couples, Sifnos in Greece is one of the best holiday destinations to chill out and relax!
