Apollonia (island’s capital) is an unspoiled traditional town, renown for its magnificent architecture. Staying here puts one in the Apollonia village, Sifnos, Cyclades, Greece heart of Sifnian life. Apollonia has a very active nightlife, which is nice to be near-by, nevertheless, hotels and pensions in the area are mainly on quiet footpaths. In Apollonia there are many great tavernas, all the island’s facilities and a general feeling of the island life. Most of the town is situated off small old footpaths, minimizing traffic disturbance and creating a timeless feel to the town. This is a nice place to explore the island by foot.

Essentials
Although there is a supermarket in Kamares that you can buy anything you need, I would suggest if you have a car and you need more things for a week to visit super market Arades which is 5 km away and has more variety, and better prices. It is open until late in the evening.

Sightseeing
Artemonas is a beautiful old village with traditional Cycladic architecture interspersed with impressive Neo-classic mansions. It is the Artemonas village, Sifnos, Cyclades, Greece most traditional village of the island with over 100-year-old pastry shops and bakeries. It is the island's largest villages although also the quietest one, since it is almost "a pedestrian only" village. From Artemonas the views of the sea and of the hill side villages are wonderful. Also, Artemonas is connected by footpath to the main village of Apollonia (a 15 minute walk) so one is not too far from all the islands facilities (banks, market, restaurants, post office, and nightlife).

Arts & Culture
Kastro is the island's most historical village built on the summit of a small peninsular hill and surrounded with views of the Aegean Kastro village, Sifnos, Cyclades, Greece Sea. Until the 19th century Kastro was the island’s capital and its significance as a defensive town designed to protect its inhabitants from marauding pirates is visible today in its uniquely fascinating architecture. It is a village with a 4000 year old history and remnants of its heritage are visible everywhere. Part of its defensive wall was built about 800 BC. This remarkable village is surrounded on three sides with views of the Aegean Sea.

Archaeology lovers should definitely visit the Mycenaean Acropolis at Agios Andreas. The Acropolis lies on the top of a hill, known as the "Kastro tou Ai-Dria" (St. Andrew's Castle), and it located on the way from Apollonia to Vathi. Recent excavations brought to light a town that was built in the 13th Century B.C and was inhabited for a hundred years before being abandoned in the 12th Century B.C. It was once again occupied in the Geometric Era in the second half of the 8th century. The inhabitants of that era were responsible for the later developments of the town. The town was naturally fortified by the steep hill that also allowed for an excellent view Myceanian Acropolis.

Entertainment & Activities
Kamares is located in a deep bay. This is where the boats arrive and depart from, but we don’t like to use the word Kamares port, Sifnos, Cyclades, Greece harbor because this may paint a different picture from the accurate one, which is really of a small village on a long sandy beach. This sandy beach has actually been awarded in 2002 with a Blue flag for its cleanliness. There are many tavernas, cafes, pubs and shops here as well as many traditional ceramic workshops. Best of all in Kamares are the beautiful sunsets and the sea side restaurants and cafes. Kamares is the only area in Sifnos that combines the beach for the day and restaurants and cafes for the nightlife.
