Sifnos Island

Family trip to Sifnos Island with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Sifnos Sifnos is often called the real pearl of the Cyclades archipelago. It’s hard to say whether this is true or not but a large number of historical monuments and natural wonders on the island is undeniable. Here, as in most of the Greek islands, recreation with children includes walks through the cities and forests, viewing historical wonders, playing active sports, and not going to water parks or having fun on the amusement playgrounds. There are no water parks and entertainment complexes on the island at all, and rides can be found in small numbers at tourist places or near hotels.
Sifnos is ready to offer tourists about a hundred of attractive hotels, inns and apartment complexes that are sure to surprise guests with their unique hospitality. Discerning travelers … Open
You can get acquainted with the Cycladic style in architecture while walking with your child through the streets of the main port of the island, Kamares. From time to time, you will see here medieval buildings and especially curious children can watch the work of potters. Unexpectedly, there are a lot of pottery workshops in Kamares, and they produce their pieces using the same technology as a century ago. A rare child won’t want to try himself in pottery or buy some jug after walking through the streets of the city. However, for a fee, in some workshops, there is an opportunity not only to observe the manufacture of pottery but also to participate in it yourself.
In Apollonia, the capital of the island, it is worth taking your child to the museum of ethnography and folk art, which can be found right on the central square. It contains a fairly large collection of ceramics, paintings, household items, folk instruments, and traditional costumes of the inhabitants of Sifnos. In the capital, you can find a local history museum. However, the streets of Apollonia are worth a stroll with the child and just for the sake of it: there are not many other places, where the child can see so many beautiful Cycladic buildings lined with white marble.

Be sure to bring at least one product from the local potters from Sifnos. Pottery has developed here since time immemorial, and to this day masters use some techniques exactly the same as a … Open
Not far from the capital, there is the medieval city of Castro. Here you can see a large number of artifacts of the Roman, Hellenistic, and later periods in the Archaeological Museum, where you should also definitely take your child. In Castro, everything is literally imbued with the spirit of the Middle Ages, and children of any age will like it here. Kids will be able to feel themselves as princesses or knights, and older children will appreciate the opportunity to touch the real, materialized history.
You can walk with your child in the archaeological park of St. Andreas, where you should definitely see all the sights. The child will be able to get acquainted with the customs of the indigenous people of Sifnos in the village of Artemonas, where the Folk Exhibition of Yannis Atsonios is located. In its essence, the exhibition is a house-museum, furnished in accordance with the local traditions. The village itself is famous for its large number of buildings in Venetian and neoclassical style. If your child loves art, then you can take him to the local church of Panagia-Gurnia. It is usually closed but the key is kept in the next house, and the temple is shown to travelers quite willingly. It attracts attention, first of all, for its frescoes, which are of great artistic value.
Sifnos is one of the most popular Greek islands from the tourist point of view; the small island is annually visited by thousands of travelers from all over the world. Active colonization of … Open
The teenagers who prefer privacy and the opportunity to watch the underwater inhabitants at great depths will like the bay of Agios Georgios. Not far from the bay you can find the monastery of Agios Georgios, next to which there are magnificent views of the island. The road to the monastery is not too tiring, so even a small child will manage it. You can sunbathe with the child on Platis Gialos and on Faros. One of these days that you stay on Sifnos, you should hire a boat and take your child either to the neighboring islands or around the coast – the child will remember this trip for a long time.
