Stay on Sifnos Island in the western Cyclades to enjoy charming villages, churches and a delightful range of beaches. Find a good mixture of accommodation on Sifnos Island, from boutique hotels and guesthouses to more luxurious four-star resorts.
Full of the traditions of the Cyclades, a visit to Sifnos promises you an idyllic island retreat.
At the heart of Sifnos Island, you’ll find its capital, Apollonia, a collection of villages packed with historic churches, restaurants, bars and typical Cycladic architecture.
Near Apollonia is the fortified village of Kastro with its beautifully preserved Medieval streets and buildings. This was the island’s capital until 1836 and the churches here are quite breathtaking. The beautiful Church of the Seven Martyrs is well worth a visit.
For a good variety of shops and places to enjoy authentic Greek food, head to Kamares, the port and largest coastal village on Sifnos Island.
With beautiful golden sand and restaurants and bars nearby, Platys Gialos is the most popular beach on Sifnos Island. It’s also one of the largest in the Cyclades. Take a break from sunbathing to explore Platys Gialos village’s ceramics workshops and some of the local pottery.
For a quieter beach experience, visit Vathi Beach to the east of Sifnos Island. And for a truly authentic Greek island experience, make your way to Herronissos beach and its picturesque cove to the north of Sifnos.
Watersports, diving and hiking are all popular activities on Sifnos Island. For a truly spectacular walk, begin at the beach of Faros and cross over to the monastery of Panagia Chrysopigi. Dedicated to the patron saint of Sifnos, this extraordinary monastery stands on a rocky headland and dates back to 1650.
For scuba diving and snorkeling, the Sifnos Diving Centre offers courses for adults and children.
Most accommodation on Sifnos Island is in and around Apollonia and the main coastal villages. Choose from delightful three-star hotels and apartments with family-friendly amenities. Or you could go for a beautiful villa in Artemonas, a little further up the hillside from the centre of Apollonia. For beachfront apartments, stay in nearby Poulati Beach.
To the east of Sifnos Island, you’ll find a good choice of two- and three-star guesthouses in Kamares as well as studios with balconies and family-friendly hotels with sea views.
On Platis Gialos Beach, there are some great budget hotels, studios and beachfront apartments. And for a little more luxury, check out the four-star apart hotels with outdoor pools here or villas a little further afield. To the north, there are some lovely places to stay on Chernoissos Beach.
Whether you enjoy hiking across island terrain, exploring shops and historical attractions or relaxing on the beach, Sifnos Island has it all. From staying in a traditional Greek village or right on the seafront, you’ll find there’s plenty of choice of accommodation on Sifnos.
