The coastline from Kastro to Platys Gialos is exceptional and the high spot is the monastery Panagia Chrissopi which is a must see destination on Sifnos. The monastery is stunning, beautifully kept and very popular for local weddings.

Must see in Sifnos. Great scenery especially during sunset. Ask for monastery history. Easy access by car. Can even swim among the rocks.
