Ayios Yieryos is an anchorage in Sifnos.

Sifnos is a charter location in Cyclades, a yacht charter area in Greece.

The anchorages on Sifnos:

Overview

Ayios Yieryos or Agios Georgios is one of the most beautiful beaches on Sifnos island. The narrow cove is located at the North-West of Sifnos island. Tranquillity becomes a necessity after a certain point, thus this island offers a peaceful environment. 

 The location is surmounted by the great Saint George’s Church. The small cell at this chapel operates once in a year at the Great Martyr. There is no hustle bustle in Agios Georgios, but you can visit the neighboring villages to explore the artistic pottery work.

Navigation

The cove is sheltered well from Meltemi except for W. The little dock is situated on the S side where all the tour boats can moor. There is approximately 8-10 meter water at the elbow and about 3-4 meters at the middle. The cove’s bottom is shallow. 

General Information

The beach does not offer many activities, but there are two ceramic workshops and two tavernas on the land. The handmade giant amphorae were made here. Sifnos is popular for pottery work, and anywhere you go, you will find an impressive display. 

The beautiful Ayios Yieryos beach witnesses big waves and is also exposed to the gushing northern winds.

Beaches

There are a few beautiful beaches on Sifnos Island. These include:

Kamares Beach 

Sunbeds are available for EUR 10 for the whole day. The water is sparkling clean and is surrounded by mighty mountains. Take a short walk at the beach and fall in love with the peace it offers. This is the first beach you will encounter as the port is located within walking distance. 

The water is shallow, thus safe for children and non-swimmers. Look above and you will find a monastery on top of a mountain. Spectacular views and peace – Kamares Beach is a must-visit.

Vroulidia Beach 

Vroulidia is a pebble beach on Sifnos island. There are two popular tavernas here and sunbeds are available for rent. Indulge in good seafood like octopus and calamari or swim in the turquoise waters.

Places of Interest

Kastro 

Prance around the alleys and eat traditional Greek food. Kastro is excellent for hiking and you can witness the magnificence of the Seven Martyrs Church. The path is well-paved and offers majestic views of the Aegean sea. 

Panagia Poulati Church 

Hiking is one of the most popular activities in Sifnos. The Poulati Beach offers great scenic views, but since it is rocky, you may find a better beach to swim.  

Places to Eat

Food holds a very special place in Sifnos. Tradition meets experimentation on this island. Try out the famous dishes made with local cheese and chickpeas. 

Try the sun-dried fish, Greek salad, freshly-made bread, and mizithra. In addition, watermelon and wine are quite popular on Sifnos island. The freshness of watermelon will charge you up for a long hike or a swim in the sea. 

Lobster spaghetti, chickpeas salad, and salads with a dash of manoura (local cheese) – all these are classics from the island.
