Considering Sifnos next year
Save

Hi everyone. Our family loves the Cyclades (Naxos is our favourite island) but for next summer we would like somewhere relatively quiet. We have two teenage boys (15 and 12) but they are happy going to relatively quiet beaches. I just have a few questions for the experienced Sifnos travellers!

1. Is Kamares the best place to stay on the island and offers the best balance of town and beach?

2. Roughly, how many tavernas are in Kamares?

3. Other beach recommendations?

4. What is the bus service around the island like? For example, is it easy to go to Applonia in the evening and get a bus back to Kamares?

5. Other top tips would be highly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance

1. Kamares is lovely place to stay - enough going on, pleasant beach and bus service.

2. Have a look at restaurants on TA - there are some good places and depending on how long you plan to stay, sufficient to give variety - but also a bus / taxii up the hill to Apollonia adds to choice - lovely plac3 for an evening visit - great atmosphere

3. We hired a car and visited Plati Gialos and Vathi - lovely beaches and pleasant eateries

4. Yes to both questions - but would also recommend a

Hiring a car for wider and mor flexible exploring - even if just for a day or two

5. Sifnos is a lovely island with relaxed and unspoiled atmosphere - we love it. Enough to explore and visit, good walking options and beaches for relaxing. Has a growing foodie reputation but I doesn’t carry the premium costs that some other islands have. We stayed up the hill above Kamares ina lovely place with a great view of the bay and a small pool - enjoyed a couple od afternoons just watching ferries come and go from the terrace - can highly recommend xerolythia - delightful welcoming owners . If you go - Enjoy
