Everything you need to know about your travels in Sifnos!

Η Sifnos is a Cycladic island with a fairly well-organized road network and short distances between its settlements. Below will βρεις όσα πρέπει να γνωρίζεις για τις μετακινήσεις σου στη Σίφνο!


As a first solution we will mention the most friendly option for you, road travel! The car / motorbike / scooter etc. gives you the greatest independence, as you can literally go to the edge of the island, any time with your friends. If you have not reached the island by your own means, you can of course rent a car! The cost is lower than you might think, and this option will save you a lot of time (since you will not have to wait for the local transport or a taxi). Also, if you have chosen the appropriate means (for example a 4x4 vehicle), you will be able to visit even the most inaccessible beaches of the island!


Taxi is still an ideal solution, if you want to go fast anywhere, but you have difficulty with orientation, directions or driving! It is also the perfect choice to return safely to your accommodation after your night out, because it is summer and you may have drunk a couple of cocktails! 


A more budget-friendly option is to travel by local means of transportation. From the moment you disembark at the port of the island, in Kamares, you can go by bus to the settlement you have chosen for your stay. The itineraries are frequent and circular and serve the settlements of Apollonia, Platy Gialos, Faros, Vathi, Kastro toni Kamares and Hersonisos.


Finally, for the more adventurous type of people, Sifnos is also suitable for hiking! The distances between the settlements are relatively short and most of the paths are paved. Without a doubt, this is also the most budget-friendly option. It will consume a little bit more of your time, but you will ear unforgettable experiences from your wandering on the island! Indicatively, the distances of the settlements of Sifnos in kilometers are the following:

  • Apollonia-Ano Petali: less than 1 km
  • Apollonia-Katavati: 1.2 km
  • Apollonia-Kato Petali: 1.3 km
  • Apollonia-Exabela: 1.6 km
  • Apollonia-Artemonas: 2.5 km
  • Apollonia-Castle: 2.9 km
  • Apollonia-Kamares: 5.2 km
  • Apollonia-Lighthouse: 7 km
  • Apollonia-Chrysopigi: 7.6 km
  • Apollonia-Platis Gialos: 8.4 km
  • Apollonia-Vathi: 10.4 km

Ό,τι και να επιλέξεις για τις μετακινήσεις σου στη Σίφνο, φρόντισε να γνωρίσεις όσο περισσότερο μπορείς την ομορφιά της, να δοκιμάσεις τις παραδοσιακές της γεύσεις και να σεργιανίσεις τις περισσότερες από τις ειδυλλιακές της παραλίες! Το κυκλαδίτικο νησί σε περιμένει να το εξερευνήσεις και να σου χαρίσει μοναδικές και ανέμελες στιγμές! Καλές διακοπές!
