The island of Sifnos where we are today has an area of 28.3 square miles. That makes it a bit bigger than Skiathos where we were last week. This morning we went exploring in the south part of the island. We went up to a the archaeological site and church of Aghios Andreas. The Mycenaean wall found at the archaeological site is from the 12 th century BC. The church is much newer. They have a wonderful view.

Next we went down o the tiny coastal village of Vathi, walked on the beach and had a coffee it was all very peaceful.


This evening we drove up to the north end of the island to enjoy the sunset.


For dinner we walked down to the village and had a wonderful dinner at Okyalos.
