Church of Agios Filippos

Agios Filippos is located at the north west of the Island, certainly the most eccentric place at the far west side of the coast. The most convenient is to stop at Kambanario ancient tower (that you can see on your right when you start walking from the asphalt road) and the path which directly drop you on the right direction, then on the other side of the hill. This is the same way I have taken to go to Tsoudhales a couple of years ago. Some very nice black and white cows will meet you. After a while, you can leave on your left the bay... [Lire la suite]

Hard escape to Vlichadhas bay

This trek is one of the painful I have ever done on the island. After having parked my car closed to the road of Katavati (start of walks to Profitis Ilias Monastery, the first part of the trek is ok. Good marking, paving stones, the path follows the Taxiarchis Skafis (church) on your right and then shows how to reach the church called Panaghia Tou Nighiou. Normally i'm struggling to find an easy way to go down and reach a beach without too many difficulties. In this case, it was a nightmare : 400 m of vertical change with no... [Lire la suite]

Panagia ti Poulati

In a few weeks, we will be back in Sifnos for 15 days and we are waiting for this since we booked our flight in January! One more time, we have decided to stay the entire holidays on our favourite island despite the attraction of the neighborhood! We found more practical to take benefit of one day cruise to do some island hoppings. That explains we will insert some snapshots of Serifos, Kimolos and Milos in the future just to show you some alternatives. The today update is a short promenade we are using to do every year from Kastro... [Lire la suite]

Living in Kamares

We have chosen to stay in the port of Kamares to take benefit of the special attraction provided by the situation. For any new tourist, Kamares proposes various type of accomodation. Moreover, many restaurants in the port or in Aghia Marina (facing the port) compete in quality to offer traditional and local greeks specialities. Despite we are faithful to Hotel Afroditi and O Argiris for our evening restaurant, we have also tested others tavernas at lunch. See upated photos in new kamares gallery.

Unknown and quiet places to swim

Some outstanding places like beaches that force you to walk a couple of hours and use the Sifnos map (scale 1:25.000). Sometimes, especially I remember for Kalamaki, topography knowledges can be useful to complete the map support. But wherever you go, the recompense is the same at the end ! This first gallery I will frequently update is dedicated to the "outstanding beaches", tourists are not used to going. As an example, Dhialiskari is the continuation of the pathway to go to Panaghia Ti Poulati (Monastery, see photos... [Lire la suite]
