Sifnos has been blessed with many beautiful villages. The crown
jewel is Kastro, placed high on my top-ten list of the many beautiful
villages in the Cyclades. Another of my favourites is the small coastal
village of Heronissos far north. The main tourist resorts are Kamares
and Platys Gialos.
All the villages, except the capital of Apollonia and the small
villages in the surrounding area, stands on the coast. Sifnos' best, and
most popular, beaches are in the coastal villages and are therefore described
here, and not under the heading Beaches.
