Best Sifnos Beaches to Explore
There are many hidden treasures on the island, when it comes to swimming and indulging in water sports. It is up to you to decide, whether you feel like getting at a crowded beach or searching for something more secluded. Either way, you will not be let down, we promise!
One of the most popular beaches in Sifnos is without a doubt Platys Gialos. Its name means “Wide Coast” and is a common name, frequently used in other islands such as Mykonos. This is a fully organized beach, stretching for miles and miles of pure, silky golden sand. There are cafés and restaurants along the shore, with sunbeds and umbrellas offering splendid convenience.
A little further away, you will find Chrissopigi beach. The scenery is amazing, with tall trees and an inviting shore. But what makes this beach even more special is the Monastery of Chrissopigi. Built on the edge of a cliff right above the sea, the monastery seems to be heading towards the water. Like it wants to submerge in the eternal bliss of the sea and sky far away…
Unlike the previous Sifnos beaches, Kamares beach lies in the west and not the south. Another marvelous beach of fine sand and welcoming nature all around. This is partly organized, providing guests with the necessities for an entire day out in the sun. Besides the restaurants and cafés here you will also find beach bars that can turn your evenings into a unique experience.
Vathy, on the other hand, is a beach that allows travelers to relax and think of nothing else. Its name means “Deep” and the waters are eloquent proof of that. But the atmosphere at Vathy is truly transcendental, with the Church of Taxiarches standing proud by the small harbor.
These are just few of the best Sifnos beach you will have the pleasure of discovering, during your stay on the Cycladic island. Faros and Apokoftos, Vroulidia and Cheronissos, Fassolou and Seralia are also worth enjoying, as well as literally any tiny cove in Sifnos. Gear up for the summer and have fun in the Greek islands!
