Sifnos HolidaysSifnos holidays will be memorable for a lifetime! Sifnos is a small island in Cyclades. It can be reached by boat or high-speed from Piraeus which will take approximately 3 to 5 hours. Sifnos will begin to take over your senses the minute you arrive. It’s magical…

Arriving at Kamares port you will encounter a lively town, which will turn into a picturesque promenade with a beach and some quaint shops as soon as the boat departs. If you decide to come by yacht the port is an ideal place for you to anchor, with all the essentials that you would need for your holiday.

There are plenty of rooms to choose from here, otherwise you can make your way to the capital of Sifnos, Apollonia named after the ancient Greek god of Apollo. Apollonia together with it’s surrounding villages, such as Artemonas, named after the ancient Greek goddess Artemis, are connected and you must take the time to walk around the town. Everything in your Sifnos holidays will be found here. Comfortable traditional accommodation, exciting nightlife for all ages, unique Sifnos cuisine, a variety of shops.

For those of you in the mood for culture, Sifnos has a small variety of interesting museums. Stop at the pre-historic acropolis of Agios Andreas, with a newly opened museum. From this place they would light fires and send smoke signals across the highest points of the island informing the neighbouring islands of sea attacks from pirates.
