ISLAND OF SIFNOS

SIFNOS - KAMARES PORT

Kamares is the only harbor in Sifnos. While it provides good shelter from the meltemi, it seems to have a constant swell that can be uncomfortable. At other times conditions are good, although a seabreeze sets into the inlet during the day and a land breeze out of it at night, so set your anchor accordingly. Go stern-to the quay, where there is space for around 6-8 yachts. The bottom is sand and weed and sometimes the holding is not too good. Use plenty of spring lines. Alternatively anchor off in 3-5 metres. 

SIFNOS - KASTRO

Kastro is an old picturesque town on east side of the island. It can be visited by taxi or bus. It reprezents a mixture of Venezian, Byzantyne and Ancient Greek history. While it is open cove on the E side it is unsuitable as ancorage.

Anchor possible near the NW corner of the bay in 5-7 m. It provides good shelter from the meltemi but it is subject to very strong gusts. The bottom is sand and rock but the holding is not good everywhere.
