3. Private Speedboat Cruise to the South Coast of Sifnos Island

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.

Fantastic crew who made the trip really enjoyable and fun. The food was really good and there were a lot of vegetarian options for people (like us) who didn't want seafood. The drinks really were unlimited and the crew always made sure everyone had everything they wanted. We stopped off for a swim and jumping off the boat was so much fun - there were so many fish to see in the sea too.

unbelievable views!!! crew was so accommodating. "light fare" was a meal fit for a king & queen!! more than I expected and much more beyond that. loved it!! highly recommended when visiting Mykonos.
