Passengers traveling by ferry to Sifnos are welcomed by barren mountains at the entrance to the port Kamares!
There is a traditional Cycladic church on top of the highest peak. Houses, shops and hotels are located on the other side of the bay. There is also a nice long beach in Kamares. The nearest settlement is Kastro. It is a small medieval town that has to offer the beaches Faros and Platis Jialos on its backside. Those beaches are included in the list of the most beautiful beaches of the Aegean Sea.
Tourists traveling to the destination Sifnos can decide on where to stay, either in an apartment at the seafront or in a hotel in the city center. Both options exist. In both cases, they will experience a wonderful vacation. Those who depart with the ferry from Sifnos or might want to visit another island should not have missed visiting the small villages that are about 6 km away from Kamares, which certainly is a beautiful place with a large bay and a long sandy beach. These “white” villages stand so close together that they convey the impression of being one single village. That is quite unique for Cycladic architecture. There is a plain full of olive trees near those villages, which is also worth seeing.
Sifnos covers an area of 74 square kilometers and its coastline is 70 km long. The island is located between Serifos, Kimolos and Antiparos. Approximately 2000 people live on the island.
