Beautiful Crystalline Waters

Lovely water to frolic in, delicious tavernas sprinkled about to dine in. What more could you ask for?? Spend a day or three here lingering under the splendid Greek sun.

We came to Vathi to experience the feast of Taxiarchisin. The feast started and the friendly people of Vathi showed so much hospitality. The church bells , priests singing the music and the dancing was so wonderful. This place is a paradise. We will return this summer and this time we will stay for a few days

The beach sandy and the water has large patches with shallow water (great for children to play) and deeper areas. There are plenty of good restaurants along the beach and a couple of places wih deck chairs.

By far our favorite beach in Sifno. it is about a 25 minute drive from Apollonia and absolutely worth it. The water is crystal clear, the beach is sandy, with plenty of restaurants.

Driving down to this beach, you get a fabulous view of Vathi Bay. Absolutely gorgeous. I visited mid-September, and it was not very crowded. This is a beautiful, sandy beach. Some nice tavernas, and interesting ceramic shops. And local houses which are very beautiful. And, of course, the swimming is fantastic!

Lovely beach with fine sand in a beautiful bay. Was perfect for us in early october because it was almost empty. It's probably not so nice in full season.

Sifnos is renowned for its sandy beaches. Vathy is not the largest one but the more attractive, especially at sunset when the sun seems like plunging in the sea. Add to that a charming small village, a XVIe century monastery along to a bunch of small taverns scattered on the other side of the bay, and you have the perfect... More

Follow the track from the bus stop or car park and you are on the beach. Everything leads off the beach, even the church. It is a great little bay with a sandy beach, well worth a visit.

After beeing to several beaches in Sifnos My conclusion is that Vathi beach is one of the best beaches in Sifnos. It is a typical sandy beach, but as it is ofte windy at Sifnos the wind is not often a problem in Vathi. You can choose the big beach in the midle of the bay or the smaler beach... More
