A half-day boat trip in southern Sifnos

Σύντομη περιγραφή

We exit the bay of Platis Gialos and head southwest and enter the strait of Kitriani-Sifnos. As soon as we leave the cape of Kontou, we soon see the first bay Fykiada where we can swim. To the left we see the small church of Agios Georgios. There we can anchor and have our first dive and enjoy the silver sand. 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. According to the legend, during the times of Pirates, nuns use to live in the monastery. During a raid in the island one nun stayed behind and prayed to the Panagia Chrysoppigi to help her. Panagia then responded her prayers and split the rock in two throwing the invaders in the sea. 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. We will see the old mines and we can swim in each of these beaches.

Then we head straight to Kastro (the castle). Kastro is the first capital of Sifnos, it is a place that was inhabited even during the prehistoric times. Kastro is built on a rock and the construction resembles that of a fortress hence the name. The reason for this construction has been pirates who would siege the islands of the eastern Mediterannean for centuries.

As we leave Kastro and the beach Seralia we head north and after about 1 NM we reach the bay of Dialiskari and we can see the monastery of Poulati where we can swim in the crystal clear waters and visit the monastery.

* During the trip, we offer water and refreshments. Meals aren't included in the price.

BON VOYAGE!!!!
