Beaches and distances


The lovers of the sand will find that Sifnos is the ideal destination for them. Kamares, Heronissos, Faros, Fassolou, Glifo, Apokofto, Platis Gialos, Vathi, Tsopos, will be like heaven on your feet! Fikiada in southern Sifnos is one of the most beautiful beaches, but doesn’t include road access. With the majority of the beaches being sandy and the depth of the sea in many areas being shallow, you can let the children play carelessly.

For those who love pebbles, you will find what you want in Spilia beach, which is next to Kamares, Vroulidia, Seralia and Lazarou.

Most of the beaches of Sifnos are organised and provide umbrellas and sun-beds, as well as natural shadow from the tamarisk trees, if you prefer that option.

As for the food? There are tavernas almost anywhere that await for you to visit them or some mini market, for the essential supplies.


Sifnos covers an area of just 74 km². Its size allows the visitor to explore it from one end to the other without exhausting themselves. Imagine that, in order to go to the most isolated village or beach, you will not need more than 20 minutes!

The kilometric distance from Apollonia, which is the capital and is situated in the centre of the island, to Heronissos is only 14 km. It is just as close as needed, in order to combine a peaceful holiday with a taste of a cosmopolitan one!
