Faros is the main beach and there are tavernas/cafes around. It is semi-organized. At the right hand, there is Glyfos beach, with clear blue water, one of the best in the island, shade under the trees. You go on foot.

Faros itself is a lovely little bay with 3 nice beaches. There are some basic facilities for shopping and some tavernas where you can eat some traditional Greek food. I found that the beachside tavernas were great if you have small children

Nice little beach with good fish tavernas, and shaded by a few pine trees. Bring your own chair and umbrella as none for hire.

The only shade is a tree near some bins, this area is used by boats fir fishing so the sea is not so clean. There are better beaches than this in Sifnos.

The Faros beach is a very graphic, romantic, warm place. The beach is usually very calm. The ea is very clean and a visitor can combine , swimming and good food.
