One of the islands of Western Cyclades, Sifnos, a balance of beautiful beaches, nightlife, white Cycladic villages, low-impact tourism and maybe the best food in the Cyclades, is listed in the Top Ten Islands under the Sun.
According to the world-class magazine “National Geographic”, Sifnos is one of the ten most charming and exotic islands, included in the list with destinations such as Bahamas, Seychelles, French Polynesia, the Netherlands Antilles, etc.
The luxury edition “Journeys of a lifetime – 500 of the World’s Greatest Trips” distinguishes Sifnos by giving it the 9th spot in the Top Ten list of “Islands Under the Sun”.
According to National Geographic “it’s just a spot on the ocean that someone could hardly notice on a map. Yet if you find yourselves there, you’ll know there’s no other place of equal beauty in the whole world”. Forbes magazine recently published an article titled “The best of Greece – But should you go?” in which Sifnos is characterized as one of the quietest and least discovered islands but simultaneously one of the most chic ones for 2012.
The Forbes journalist can’t help remarking that Sifnos is one of his favorite islands in Greece, while he points out that riots often occurring in big Greek cities are extremely unlikely to take place in Sifnos and other similar peaceful Greek islands.
