More about: Sifnos island
From the trips I have made in Greece, Sifnos gave me the most beautiful experience. I stayed in Apollonia, the capital where all the taverns, bars and coffee houses are. Anyone who has not yet visited the island, has no excuse because it is only 5 hours from Athens and it has it all, beautiful beaches, great nightlife, food for all tastes, villages for short excursions, interesting routes and historical settlements with a splendid atmosphere.
Once you are in Sifnos
, it is a pity not to explore at least the places close to you. Imagine that only a short breath away from the center is the gorgeous Kastro, the medieval settlement of Sifnos with the castle and the beautiful houses that surround it from the top to the bottom of the hill. A stroll around the romantic streets of Kastro is surely unpredictable, as you go there are some amazing bars sitting right at the edge of the cliff with a fantastic view to the sea.
One of the most picturesque places to visit is Chrysopigi, first of all you will love the crystalline and calm waters of the beach, a couple of taverns there make the area even more interesting, I ate the best fried pumpkin balls there and then you should not miss a visit at the monastery. There are many hotels in Sifnos but I prefer the rental rooms which are much cheaper and you will find some in great locations.
