Faros, Sifnos Island

The cute scenic settlement of Faros is situated at a distance of 7 kilometers southeastern to Apollonia, at the inner part of a cove, well protected from the northern winds. The settlement owes its name to the big lighthouse standing at the entrance of the cove, just beside the monastery of Stavros. Until the end of the 19th century it served as the main port of Sifnos; even today this port is the safest of the island. The village counts some 100 permanent residents occupied mainly in tourism.

This nice village of fishermen offers some accommodation facilities, good food at the fish taverns by the seaside and some shops for the necessary provisions. For swimming you may go to three nice and scenic beaches, successive to one another. They are: the beach of Fassolou, the beach of Faros and that of Glyfo. All of them are pretty quiet and ideal for relaxing. From Faros you may also go to the beaches of Chryssopege and Apokofto, following the footpath.

At the western part of the cove you may see the ruins of the old constructions used in the past for the loading of the ores. The ships brought the material to Lavrion, in Attica. At the very depth of the cove you will see a beacon.

Access to the beach from the port of Kamares and from Apollonia is possible by rented or private car and motorbikes. The small safe port of the settlement is available for mooring as well as for water and fuel supply of small boats and yachts.
