I guess that my opinion about this island is too biased, because here is where my grandfather Apostolos was born. So, each stone, each olive tree, each sound and aroma has a deep meaning for me, then my eyes can only see the emotional beauty.

Sifnos don't belongs to the main "Touristic Track" of the cycladic islands. If you're looking for a shaked nightlife and crazy experiences this is not "your island". Choose another like Mykonos or Santorini and leave us alone.

The clean sky and the silent siestas inviting to the pleasure of solitude are a luring way of life if you're looking for this deserved rest for your body and your soul.
Wake up early and enjoy the generous sun of Sifnos, after a couple of hours at the beach, eat some fresh fish at the noon on this small table beside the sea and then back to the sand, for fun or just for contemplation of the lazy blue waves, almost lost with your inner thoughts.
That's the promise offered by this island, like a hidden treasury that only few people can appreciate.
