Sifnos Beaches are arguably some of the best beaches in Greece! If you are not yet familiar with Sifnos, I highly recommend adding this incredible island into your Greece Itinerary!

Sifnos often gets overlooked and sometimes forgotten about as it lies between two of the more popular Greek island’s, Milos and Serifos. But I am telling you now, Sifnos offers a mecca of adventures that are not to be missed.

I spent a short two days in Sifnos (I wish it could have been longer) and only got a taste of what this island has to offer. In saying that, I utilised my time well to see as many spots as possible and have put together this complete guide of the 7 Best Sifnos Beaches including where to find them and what to expect!

 

Have you got travel insurance for Greece? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents happen all the time and having travel insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. You can read more about why you need travel insurance.

I have been using World Nomads Travel Insurance on every trip and in my opinion, they are without a doubt the best travel insurance provider on the market. I always choose the World Nomads Explorer Plan as it covers just about everything.

HOW TO GET TO SIFNOS GREECE

The best way to reach Sifnos island is by taking a ferry to Sifnos from Athens or from other nearby Greek islands. I used ‘Book A Way’ to purchase my ferry tickets online in advance.

I have outlined the most popular routes and journey times below:

Athens to Sifnos ferry: 

  • Departures – five times a day with Aegean Speed Lines
  • Journey time – three hours

Click Here to search availability and rates.

 Milos to Sifnos ferry:

  • Departures – five to six times a day with Sea Jets & Agean Speed Lines
  • Journey time – one hour

Click Here to search availability and rates.

Note: Once you have purchased your ticket online for the ferry to Sifnos, you’ll receive an email confirmation and e-ticket. You must then arrive one hour before the ferry departure time and present the e-ticket to the staff at the Sea Jets or Aegean Speed Lines office at the Pireaus Port in Athens. They will then print you an official boarding pass for your trip.

 

GETTING AROUND SIFNOS

The best way to explore Sifnos Beaches and the island is to rent a scooter, ATV or a car for the day and make your way around Sifnos island at your own pace.

There are a number of places to organise a scooter, ATV and car rental in Sifnos which can all be found within walking distance as soon as you step off the ferry in the main harbour-side town of Kamares.

Scooter rental Milos:

I personally rented my scooter from 1 Moto Car and found them to be the most affordable and reliable. From €25 per day, 1 Moto Car offers scooter rentals and ATV rentals. They are located across the road from Folis Market near Kamares Beach.

Car rental Sifnos:

If you would prefer to rent a car in Sifnos, it’s best to book online in advance to secure a set of wheels for when you arrive. There are many small cars and SUV’s available to rent that will get you around the island safely. Click Here to check availability and prices.

Note: An international driver’s license is mandatory for renting scooters and cars on Sifnos island, so make sure to have this ready to present along with your passport or ID.

7 BEST SIFNOS BEACHES – COMPLETE GUIDE

#1 VROULIDIA BEACH

Vroulidia Beach is by far my favourite pick of all the Sifnos beaches. Vroulidia is a little further away than most beaches in Sifnos, but that’s what makes this beach so special and well worth the journey to get here!

Free ∼ $40 AirBnb Discount

WHERE IS VROULIDIA BEACH

Vroulidia Beach is located in the north of Sifnos island near Herrissos Village.

From the main city of Apollonia, it is a twenty-five-minute drive. If you are staying in Kamares, the journey to Vroulidia Beach takes around thirty minutes.

The road is tar-sealed for the majority of the way to Vroulida Beach though for the last two kilometres down the hill to the beach it becomes a gravel road.

You’ll see most people parking their cars and scooters at the top of the hill and walking down to the beach, though I rode my scooter all the way down to the bottom carpark and had no issues getting down or driving back up.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT VROULIDIA BEACH

As Vroulidia Beach is a little off the beaten track you can expect fewer crowds and a more relaxing atmosphere.

The bay is quite large and the shoreline is made up of sand and white pebbles with plenty of space to get your tan on. Otherwise, you can take refuge in the shade under one of the many straw umbrellas that line the beach.

Vroulidia Beach boasts crystalline water which is quite shallow in the bay and you can easily enter the ocean via one of the wooden piers.

Also located down on Vroulidia Beach are a few restaurants and a beach bar serving up thirst-quenching drinks, fresh seafood and local Greek dishes.

#2 SEVEN MARTYRS CHURCH & BEACH

The Church of Seven Martyrs in Sifnos is not your typical beach destination but it does have some pretty cool rockpools and cliff jumping. It is also said to be the most photographed spot on Sifnos island and well worth checking out!

See My ∼ Ultimate Travel Packing List

WHERE IS THE CHURCH OF SEVEN MARTYRS SIFNOS

The Church of Seven Martyrs is located in the village of Kastro which is situated along the eastern coastline of Sifnos.

From Apollonia, it is a short six-minute drive to reach Kastro. If you are coming from Kamares, the drive takes approximately fifteen-minutes.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE SEVEN MARTYRS CHURCH & BEACH

When you arrive at Kastro, follow the main road till the very end to where you’ll find a small carpark. Park your car or scooter here and then walk up the stairs and follow the path to the right-hand side through Kastro town which leads to the beach.

The streets of Kastro are beautiful, to say the least. Bougainvillea flowers line the walls of white-washed houses and there are a number of quaint terraced cafes along the pathway to the beach.

When you reach the end of the path, follow it around the bend and this is where the Church of Seven Martyrs will reveal itself. A traditional Greek Church painted white and blue which sits on top of a rocky islet that emerges from the ocean.

A winding cobblestone staircase leads right the way down to the Seven Martyrs Church Sifnos and it takes no more than five minutes to get from top to bottom.

Once you’ve visited the church and taken some photos, head a little further down to the rockpools in the small cove for a dip. There is also a number of cliff jumping spots at the beach, though I recommend checking the depth of the water before you jump.

#3 APOKOFTO BEACH

Apokofto Beach is one of the more popular Sifnos beaches that lies in a picturesque bay and a must-see on your lap around the island. I spent a few hours swimming and exploring at Apokofto Beach and have included it in my Sifnos blog so you can check it out too!

WHERE TO FIND APOKOFTO BEACH

Apokofto Beach is located on the southeastern corner of Sifnos island.

From Apollonia to Apokofto beach it is a fifteen-minute drive. If you are staying in Kamares, the drive to Apokofto beach takes around twenty-five minutes.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT APOKOFTO BEACH SIFNOS

The drive down the mountainside towards Apokofto Beach is a scenic one that will have you stopping along the way to take photos at a few of the roadside viewpoints.

When you reach the bottom of the road there is plenty of parking spaces available for cars and scooters.

Apokofto Beach lies in an idyllic bay boasting crystalline water and a mixture of soft sand and pebbled shoreline. There are some shady trees that line Apokofto Beach and a perfect place to set down your belongings and head into the ocean for a swim.

Also down at Apokofto Beach, you can find a few restaurants and taverns to grab a bite to eat and drink.

One of the most iconic landmarks at Apokofto Beach is the Chrisopigi Monastery that sits out on the tip of a rocky headland on the southern end of Apokofto.

Around the bend from the Chrisopigi Monastery is another secluded swimming cove worth checking out!

WHERE IS PANAGIA POULATI BEACH

Panagia Poulati is located along the eastern coastline of Sifnos Island Greece.

From Apollonia, the drive to Poulati Church and beach takes around ten minutes. From Kamares, the journey over to Panagia Poulati is approximately a twenty-minute drive.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT POULATI CHURCH & BEACH

When you arrive at Panagia Poulati, there is a small carpark in front of the church to park your car or scooter. From here you can find a staircase on the left-hand side of the building that leads down to the beach. The walk down should take you no more ten minutes from top to bottom.

This little bay is one of the most secluded Sifnos Beaches and fewer tourists flock here, which means you’ll most likely have the beach all to yourself.

This beach features a rocky shoreline and turquoise water fills the bay. If you swim out and shift your gaze back towards land you’ll have sweeping views of a vividly green valley that frames the beach.

There are no facilities down at this beach, so if you wish to spend some time down here be sure to pack plenty of drinking water and snacks to take with you.

A number of sunbeds and beach umbrellas are dotted along the golden sands at Platis Gialos Beach, but best to arrive early to score one before the crowds of beachgoers start rolling in.

#6 POLYAIGOS ISLAND & BEACHES

Polyaigos, also spelt Poliegos, is a small uninhabited island that boasts pristine beaches, large sea caves and exotic nature! Poliegos island is a short boat trip away from Sifnos and I highly recommend slotting it into your Sifnos itinerary.

Find All ∼ Hotels in Sifnos

WHERE IS POLYAIGOS & HOW TO GET THERE

Poliegos island is located directly south of Sifnos and it takes approximately thirty minutes to reach Polyaigos by speed boat.

The majority of the Poliegos island boat tours operate out of Platis Gialos Beach.

I personally booked a Poliegos island boat tour with Bloomarine Sifnos and highly recommend booking with them for a safe, enjoyable and unforgettable journey to Poliegos.

Bloomarine also offers a range of different watersports activities and boat rentals.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE POLYAIGOS ISLAND TOUR

I met the guys from Bloomarine at the Platis Gialos boat harbour at around 7am to begin the thirty-minute journey over to Polyaigos island.

The first spot we checked out was an enormous sea cave along the northern coastline of Poliegos island and the captain drove the boat right inside for a closer look. This spot is absolutely phenomenal, boasting crystal clear waters and a natural hole in the top of the cave.

After visiting the sea cave on Polyaigos we visited a few more secluded coves and exotic beaches that were mind-blowing and I guarantee these spots will leave you jaw-dropped!

Before heading back to Sifnos, the captain anchored the boat in an idyllic bay to go for a much-desired swim.

Honestly can’t recommend this tour to Poliegos island enough. Money well spent and an experience that will last a lifetime!

#7 KAMARES BEACH

Last but not least on this list of the best beaches in Sifnos is Kamares Beach. A  large bay, sandy shoreline and turquoise waters are more than enough reasons to visit Kamares Beach during your visit to Sifnos Greece.

WHERE IS KAMARES BEACH

Kamares Beach lies on the western coastline and it is also where the main harbour is located on Sifnos island.

From the main city of Apollonia, it is a ten-minute drive to reach Kamares Beach.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT KAMARES BEACH

A long golden beach set in a large bay surrounded by mountains is what you can expect to find at Kamares Beach Sifnos.

The shoreline features beach umbrellas dotted across the sand and the bay boasts some of the most turquoise water I have ever seen. Kamares is rated one of the best Sifnos Beaches by locals and tourists.

Kamares is quite a busy little town because of the daily arrivals and departures of visitors at the main port.

You can find many hotels, retail shops, convenience stores, cafes, seaside restaurants and bars dotted throughout the town, with Kamares Beach just a stone’s throw away.

Kamares Beach faces west making it one of the best places to watch the sunset in Sifnos.

For sunset, I recommend heading to Foli Bar which is located at the northern end of Kamares Beach. Foli Bar offers seaside dining, great cocktails and live music. It’s one of the best restaurants in Sifnos and a perfect place to relax and unwind after a full day of beach hopping in Sifnos Greece.
