GREEK ISLANDS SIFNOS
The main port of Sifnos is the town of
Kamares that has developed to accommodate a plethora of small hotels and
apartments for rent. The architecture of all these recently constructed
buildings has conformed to the cubist Cycladic style, while the number of
available lodgings is conducive to good availability and reasonable prices.
Some of the highlights of our trip included our visit to the town of Kastro, swimming at several beaches around Sifnos, dinning at Faros, and strolling the streets of Apollonia.
Visiting Kastro on the East coast of Sifnos on a clear evening at sundown was like stepping back in time. The narrow pedestrian streets wind around the medieval houses leading the visitor through several archways and a wind-swept promenade high above the sea. The view from this eastern end of the town is breathtaking with the wide expanse of the Aegean being punctuated by the little church of the Seven Martyrs.
Swimming at one of the numerous beaches around the island is a joy as one can always find a quiet spot either in Faros, Vlyho, or Fasolou. Other nice beaches include more crowded ones, at Platis Gialos, Vathy, or Kamares.
