Why to visit Sifnos

It is a Cycladic destination where you'll want to bring your wellies as well as your flip-flops to go discovering the Island's natural beauties and communities. If you're ever here, make sure to check out the Sifnos trails, which are the biggest in the Aegean and comprise a system of paths that have evolved in just a few years. In fact, there are almost 100 kilometres of trails to explore in this lovely area. You'll pass by charming churches, temples, towns, country houses, and more along the trails. You can appreciate all this with the Aegean Sea as a backdrop. It is one of the most captivating holiday destinations in Greece.

The first thing that will strike you on most Greek islands is the light, reflecting off burnished rocks or colouring the horizon a fuzzy peach. It's the scent of magenta cookies drifting down whitewashed roads; enclaves of sage and oregano in wind- chiselled valleys; bursts of saltwater when sea organisms are prised open, orange spawn scooped up with fingertips on outrageously beautiful Sifnos in the Cyclades.

The Sifnos is all about swimming, snorkeling and wandering. Some beaches are equipped with loungers and umbrellas, but no water sports or games are available. There are numerous hiking trails that cross Sifnos island and lead to monasteries, little churches, old castles, and hidden beaches for those who enjoy walking. Spring and fall are the finest times to hike in Sifnos since the weather is cooler and the scenery is more colourful.

The best and most popular way to get to Sifnos is to take a ferry from Athens or another nearby island. Passengers are dropped off at the port in Kamares by all vessels.
