The tour of Sifnos in one day
We depart from the marina of Platis Gialos heading southwest and we find ourselves in the strait between Sifnos and the uninhabited Kitriani Island with the church of great historical value carrying the same name.
Continuing our course we reach the Kontou promontory and as we enter we see the church of Agios Georgios to our left and the sandy beach of Fikiada in the background where we can enjoy our first dive.
From there we head to Vathi cove, a closed cove with traditional tavernas and a wind-protected beach. Continuing right we find other beaches and after a few minutes we arrive at the main port of Sifnos, Kamares. There, we’ll admire the churches of Profitis Ilias and Agios Simeon at the summit of the mountain.
Next, we get to Vroulidia cove, a small beautiful beach with aqua blue waters and there we can have our lunch. Next stop is the Heronissos cove, a quaint little beach with a multitude of fishing boats. Leaving Heronissos behind us we pass several bays like Vlihada and the famous promontory of Agios Sostis, known for its mines since antiquity.
In a few minutes we’ll see the church of Panagia Poulati and from there, keeping course south we continue to Kastro and the Seralia beach where we can stop for a quick dive in these sparkling clean waters.
Continuing southwest this time we come across the 3 beaches lined up one after the other, Pharos, Fasolou and Glifos. A stop here is a must for a dive in these 3, wind-protected beaches.
What we see next is the promontory with the stunning monastery of Chrisopigi perched majestically on the cut rock and to our right we see the Apokoftos beach with the sparking clean emerald waters.
Finally, after Chrisopigi we complete our tour returning to the marina of Platis Gialos!
