Sifnos, being a more intellectual and hip island, is considered to attract the most exciting and interesting crowd of the Aegean.
Foodies will have an unforgettable experience combining holidays with exceptional traditional Greek cuisine. Even though it is as dry as most of the islands in the area, it is quite unique being sophisticated, elegant  and relaxed.

Stay

Elies Resort: minimal Cycladic architecture which has been built to make sure its visitors have a memorable holiday! Their restaurant is fantastic, their breakfast is unforgettable and their hospitality is worth noting. Vathi, tel 84003, from 240€
Verina Suites: located in Platys Gialos is an exclusive complex comprised of apartments and a couple of separate suites in line with the traditional architecture and a modern design. Tel 2284071525, from 92€

Eat

Okyalos: the best restaurant in Sifnos with innovative cuisine and a touch of Sifnos cooking. Apollonia, tel 2284032060
Odos Oniron: situated in a beautiful courtyard, it offers excellent Mediterranean cuisine. Apollonia, tel 2284032002
Capetan Andreas: on the beach of Kamares offering exceptional fish. Must-try is the  “astakomakaronada”. Kamares
Lembesis: one of the best tavernas in Sifnos, with traditional “Sifnaikous” mezedes. Chrysopigi, tel 71295

Beaches

Platys Gialos: the most popular beach with quite a few cafes and “ouzeri”! Don’t go if you don’t like “to see and be seen”
Vathi: our favourite as we stayed at Elies Resort with a lots of tavernas and fantastic clear waters
Chrysopigi: quite over crowded even though very pretty, so it is recommended to go in the afternoon

Tips

– Try “mastelo” and “revithada”, some of Sifnos’s local dishes
– It is quite near Milos and Folegandros so one could combine a couple of more islands on their island hopping
