SIFNOS ISLAND

If you are looking for that perfect Greek island with a balance of beautiful beaches,

low-key nightlife, white Cycladic villages, low-impact tourism

and maybe the best food in the Cyclades, then look no further than Sifnos. 

It is a mountainous island with fertile valleys, beautiful beaches

ancient villages and several towns and has been inhabited since 3000 BC. 

Great for adventure and hiking seekers, pottery collectors, beach lovers  

and those of us who appreciate excellent food! 

Sifnos was the first island in Greece to hook up their plumbing to a purification and waste treatment plant

which makes Plati Gialos one of the cleanest beaches in Greece.

LOCATION

Plati Gialos beach annually receives the European Union’s “Blue Flag” award given to

the cleanest and safest coastal areas that protect the environment.

Situated on the south side of the island, the surrounding hills of Plati Gialos break the prevailing northern summer winds, making it a sanctuary with calm waters on windy days.

“Plati Gialos” means “wide seashore” in Greek and is considered one of the longer beaches of the Cycladic islands. It is one of the finest and sought after locations in Sifnos.
 

The beach is your backyard and you will find anything you may need.
A wide array of quiet traditional and contemporary restaurants, coffee shops, seafood bars,

mini food market, traditional bakery, little shops for your beach or fashion needs, pottery shops,

beach chairs and umbrellas, water sport rentals and sailing boat rentals

and all this is just a short barefoot walk from the house. 
 

There are many hiking trails starting at Plati Gialos,

providing ancient footpath access to the rest of the island: the best way to see the island. 
 

White-washed houses with traditional ceramic chimneys and small churches with blue domes, built on hills that lead to sandy beaches, this is Sifnos, the jewel of the Cyclades.
