PENSION AKROGIALI is located at the beach of Platis Gialos, the most popular beach of Sifnos, which is awarded each year with the blue flag of the European Union. It combines natural beauty and integrated tourist facilities. It is at the island’s south side and 12 kilometers from Apollonia. It is considered the most beautiful beach of Sifnos, and one of the longest of the Cyclades, which is why it has the highest number of visitors. It is located in a bay safely out of reach of the high northeastern winds.
The area of Platis Gialos is highly developed. Here there are many hotels, cafe bars and restaurants where you can savor the traditional recipes of Sifnos. Many potteries also operate here, which you can visit and learn the secrets of this trade which is an island tradition and also purchase beautiful hand crafted earthenware.
