Sifnos is a wonderful island to discover independently. The road
network is well developed, the roads are good and the traffic is minimal.
You can reach almost the entire island, there are no distances to talk
about, apart from the distance between Apollonia
and Heronissos. If you - like me
- like to discover the Greek islands with a scooter, you'll love Sifnos.
BY SCOOTER AND CAR
Scooter and car rental places are in Apollonia, Kamares
and Platys Gialos. The largest
selection are in Kamares. If you stay in Faros,
take the bus up to Apollonia when you want to rent vehicles.
The bus services on Sifnos is a shining example: the buses
run on time, they arrive on time and they operate almost the entire island.
If there had been a championship for local buses in Greece, Sifnos had
won easily. Timetables are posted at bus stops and outside all travel
The taxi station is on the square in Apollonia, not far from
the travel agency of Aegean Thesaurus. If you are in another place,
just stop a taxi, or call for one. If you are going for a hike, you can
pre-book a taxi to pick you up where you want, when you want. When you
arrive by ferry to the port there are usually some taxis in the port,
often they are booked, but generally you do not have to wait long for
a taxi that is not engaged.
Bus stop in Apollonia
for all buses except to Kamares.
