Getting around in Sifnos
Sifnos is a wonderful island to discover independently. The road network is well developed, the roads are good and the traffic is minimal. You can reach almost the entire island, there are no distances to talk about, apart from the distance between Apollonia and Heronissos. If you - like me - like to discover the Greek islands with a scooter, you'll love Sifnos.
Heronissos is the village that is the longest to drive to.
BY SCOOTER AND CAR
Bus stop in Apollonia for all buses except to Kamares.
The bus services on Sifnos is a shining example: the buses run on time, they arrive on time and they operate almost the entire island. If there had been a championship for local buses in Greece, Sifnos had won easily. Timetables are posted at bus stops and outside all travel agencies.
There are two excursion boats In Sifnos, one that departs from Kamares and one that starts from Platys Gialos.
From Apollonia you reach all the island.
The taxi station is on the square in Apollonia, not far from the travel agency of Aegean Thesaurus. If you are in another place, just stop a taxi, or call for one. If you are going for a hike, you can pre-book a taxi to pick you up where you want, when you want. When you arrive by ferry to the port there are usually some taxis in the port, often they are booked, but generally you do not have to wait long for a taxi that is not engaged.
Sifnos is an excellent hiking island. And that is one of the reasons why we like Sifnos so much. So if you like to hike you will love Sifnos.
