Sifnos (Greece)

Sifnos Travel Guide and Trip Resources

Santorini-esque Sifnos

I like to travel off the beaten path, and one day I found myself searching for lesser known Greek islands to travel to. It didn't take long before Sifnos came up.

To get to this island in the Western Cyclades you need to first make your way to either Athens or (in summer time) Thessaloniki, fly to Milos island and take a ferry from there. It is a journey not many are prepared to make, but if they knew that what is on offer here is similar to other more famous regional islands like Santorini, they might reconsider.

We're talking about medieval Cycladic towns featuring whitewashed houses and churches. We are talking good food and fine beaches, great views across the many bays and olive groves inside the more mountainous interior. [Review by travelindicator]
