Where to stay

We will be visiting on 9th June for about 3 nights. Is it best to stay in Kamares?

1. Re: Where to stay

Hi Carol! That's a tough question, as you don't say what sort of holiday you're actually looking for! But you've only got three nights, so it is probably a good idea to base yourselves in the port, so you can make the most of the time you've got. ''Early June'' is still quite early for beach pursuits, but if you're thinking of swimming, the sea does warm up more quickly in Kamares, where the bay is quite shallow, and sheltered by the hills. There's a huge variety of accommodation in Kamares, and as you're coming early in the season, there will be lots available. Some of the other beach places, like Vathy, won't really have got going yet, so they're probably better for visiting during the day: Kamares will have more going on in the evening. If you're thinking of hiring a car, you can cover a lot of ground in a few days, but the buses won't be running full timetables yet. It's a pity really that you're not staying for a few more days, as on the 12th-13th June there's the most important of the island festivals, which is well worth seeing. Some of it takes place in Kamares! I suggest that you take a look at the Sifnos Forum: it's not huge, and if you read some of last year's posts, especially the ones similar to yours, you'll find lots of information. But anything you need to know, just post a question here and I and other people who love the island too, will try to answer it. Enjoy!

Thank you for the information, we may be able to change our plans and go a bit later to take advantage of the festival.
