This is my dad's favorite island I think. He has been
coming here for 20 years and has lots of friends here. I like the beach
here. It's long and shallow. We stay in the Stavros hotel. My dad took

This is Chrysopigi where we go to swim sometimes. It
is really an island. A long time ago some girls were running away from
some pirates and they ran here and prayed for a miracle. Suddenly there

the pirates. Then the pirates got scared and ran away.
This is Vathy where we stay sometimes. You can go by
boat or by car. When we stayed here we lived in a church with no electricity.
My dad went snorkling and caught fish every day.
Sifnos has 365 churches. They are everywhere. Some big
some small, some on the sea and some on the tops of high mountains.
Kastro is the oldest village on the island. This is the
main street. Stick close to your parents because you can easily get lost
here but it is small so they will probably find you again.
