Boat rental Sifnos: Here, you will find all the details you need to privately rent a boat to cruise around South Sifnos. 

At Sifnos Boat Cruises,

we exit the bay of Platis Gialos and head southwest. After about 10 minutes we reach the cape of Kontou, and enter the bay of Fykiada where we can swim. 

To the left we see the small church of Agios Georgios. Once we leave Fykiada we will turn back east and after passing along of Platis Gialos we will reach the bay of Apokofto and Chryssopigi where we can visit the most famous monastery of Sifnos. The split rock is a characteristic feature of Chryssopigi where a strip of sea separates the bay from the land. Panagia Chryssopigi is the protector of the island and there is the famous festival (panigyri) 40 days after Easter.

After Chryssopigi we head east and we shall visit the bays of Faros and the three beaches of Fassolou, Faros and Glyfo (or Vlycho). We will see the old mines and we can swim in each of these beaches before we get back to Platis Gialos marina.
