Sifnos is a real gem studded with innumerable churches and offering many hiking trails. It is an island that delights the senses of the gastronomes and, of course, offers beautiful beaches, bustling or a little secret.

We have created 360-degree strolls around the Bay of Kamares and along the "Steno" of the capital Apollonia, with virtual tours of local companies that we personally recommend.

We also display the beautiful seaside destinations of Faros and Vathi, the Mycenaean acropolis of Agios Andreas and many other spectacular places, from Chrysopighi to Cheronissos through Agios Simeon and Kastro.

This beautiful church is built on the road connecting the port of Kamares to Apollonia, the capital of the island. Nestled in the shade of tall trees, it's an ideal place for a meditative break.
A beautiful chapel that stands on the first slopes of the mountain facing the port of Kamares. It offers a superb view of the beach and the bay.
Ruins of a Mycenaean acropolis of the 13th century BC, on a hill that offers a breathtaking view. The archaeological site and its small museum are open from Tuesday to Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. (except holidays).
A small chapel that stands on the road leading to Chrysopighi and Platis Ghialos. Nothing really extraordinary... except that, curiously, it opens on the landscape with large windows!
The forecourt of this ancient monastery perched above Kamares is one of the most beautiful viewpoints of Sifnos. Don't hesitate to visit the church too, it's really magnificent!
The capital of Sifnos stands on the heights of the island, in the heart of a group of villages with rather fuzzy limits. Its picturesque central alley (nicknamed "steno" because it's quite narrow) is very lively in high season.
The tiny fishing port north of Sifnos, at the bottom of a picturesque bay. A small sandy beach, taverns on the waterfront, small grocery store, rooms for rent. No mobile network, total tranquility, the perfect place to disconnect from the world!
The most famous monastery of Sifnos, between the popular seaside resorts of Platis Ghialos and Faros. The beautiful beach of Apokofto and its taverns are just next door. The monastery and its church stand on a peninsula that offers exceptional views.
Our favorite café in Kastro, the picturesque village of the east coast. Beautifully decorated terrace with a nice view, cool jazz music, friendly atmosphere.
One of the most beautiful seaside resorts of Sifnos, at the bottom of a bay with crystal clear water. Some scenes of the movie "Nicostratos the Pelican", with Emir Kusturica, were shot here. Two nice sandy beaches, and others nearby, in a magnificent landscape.
Close to the village and the beach, Hotel Kamari offers large renovated rooms for 2 or 3 people, as well as 2 apartments for up to 8 people.
The port of Sifnos, at the bottom of a bay facing west, sheltered from the north wind (meltemi). Very good restaurants, nice bars, a beautiful beach, spectacular scenery all around.
The ancient capital of Sifnos is the most picturesque village of the island. It stands on a hill overlooking the Chapel of the Seven Martyrs (Eptamartyres), one of the most photographed places in the Cyclades. Its alleys inlaid with ancient remains invite to romantic walks.
The only campsite in Sifnos, vast, shady and very well equipped. It also offers some spots for motorhomes, as well as very comfortable studios.
One of the best restaurants in Sifnos, located in Apollonia, capital of the island. It is very easy to find: just go up the "Steno", the lively alley where the night life of the village is concentrated.
This tiny jewellery shop is actually the Kamares branch of the Pleiades Jewellery and Workshop, which you will find in Apollonia, capital of the island.
A jewellery and workshop you discover while strolling along the "Steno", this long and lively alley where are concentrated the shops, bars, cafes and restaurants of Apollonia.
This small travel agency is located in the main street of Kamares, a short distance from the port. It will help you find an accommodation and rent a car.
One of the most beautiful seaside destinations of Sifnos, but also a perfect starting point for hikes in the wild areas of the island. On the beach, the Chapel of the Archangels (Taxiarches), built in the 16th century, is the setting for festivities in July, September and November.
