Private Speedboat Cruise to the South Coast of Sifnos Island

Private Speedboat Cruise to the South Coast of Sifnos Island

As soon as your boat leaves the cape of Kontou, you will see the first bay, Fykiada, where you can swim. To the left you see the small church of Agios Georgios. The captain will anchor and let you have the first dive and enjoy the silver sand. Later, the boat turns to the east and after passing along Platis Gialos you will reach the bay of Apokofto and Chryssopigi. Here, you can visit the most famous monastery of Sifnos. According to the legend, during the times of pirates, nuns used to live in the monastery. During a raid on the island one nun stayed behind and prayed to the Panagia Chrysoppigi to help her. Panagia then responded to her prayers and split the rock in two, throwing the invaders into the sea. The split rock is a characteristic feature of Chryssopigi.  After Chryssopigi, you head east to visit the bays of Faros and the three beaches: Fassolou, Faros and Glyfo. You will see the old mines and have the chance to explore each of these beaches. Then, you will head straight to the famous castle, Kastro. Kastro was the first capital of Sifnos, a place that was inhabited even during the prehistoric times. Kastro is built on a rock and the construction resembles that of a fortress hence the name. As you leave Kastro, you will head north where you will discover the bay of Dialiskari. Here, you can swim in the crystal clear waters and visit the monastery. After a while the captain will take you back to the marina of Platis Gialos.

You can visit the old factory where the old machinery is still there. We can spend about 20 minutes there. After we enter the boat, we head southwest towards Gerakas beach which is only accessible by a boat and it’s probably one of the top 5 beaches in the Cycladic islands. The water is simply amazing, and the vibe of the place is incredible. We anchor and we can swim for as long as you like, you can swim to the beach where you can lay on a very soft type of pebbly sand that you simply can’t get enough of it! Usually, we stay there for about an hour, but even more, if you like. Afterward, we enter the boat and keep heading southwest towards Tsigrado beach, the only beach in Milos where people climb a big wooden ladder to visit it. Indeed, a special place. We swim right next to it, and away from the many people that visit the place, in a very secluded spot that fits just one boat and the water is so turquoise. We drop anchor and stay there for about half an hour. After we enter the boat, we keep heading southwest towards Gerontas beach, but just before we get there, we pass a big cave which we enter with the boat and go all the way in. Gerontas beach has magnificent dark brown and very fine sand with many small “private” kinds of beaches throughout the left part of the beach and behind a big rock, where you can jump in the sea from. We drop anchor and can stay there for about another half an hour swimming. After we enter the boat, we keep heading southwest towards the famous Kleftiko.

We drop anchor in many different spots there and we swim and explore all the caves, where we enter from one location and exit in a different one! We stay at Kleftiko for about an hour and 15 minutes, taking in all the unbelievable beauty that nature created for us to enjoy. Of course, we use our masks and snorkels to explore all the caves! It’s time to head back the same way we came from… We head east and follow the shoreline, we leave Milos behind and over to the strait of Kimolos and Poliegos, then pass outside Psathi which is the port of Kimolos island and turn Northeast towards Sifnos so we can reach Platis Gialos and finish off a simply incredible day full of memories that will last a lifetime!
