Sifnos in detail



On the southeast coast, the fishing hamlet of Faros has fish tavernas and a couple of nice beaches nearby, including Fasolou, reached up steps and over the headland from the bus stop.

Platys Gialos, 10km south of Apollonia, has a generous sandy beach entirely backed by tavernas, hotels and shops. Vathy, on the southwest coast, is a low-key resort village on an almost circular bay of aquamarine beauty.
