The sea bed is this area has many plates, reefs, sand with rocks and holes. In Chrisopigi and in Faros’ Stavros you shall be impressed by the wealth of the sea bed! The fish that you will find here are pikes, bassfish, pandoras, streaked gurnards, blackfish etc. You can fish with a rifle harpoon, but also with trawl lines, fishnet, and fishing lines.

At the south of Sifnos a good area to fish is the small island Kitriani and Platis Gialos. The sea bed there has many caves, holes, plates and deepenings, where you shall find many fish, such as sarguses, lichia ammia, blackfish etc.

Coastal fishing in Sifnos

At the west side of Sifnos you can visit Vathi, the sea bed of which is sandy; however there are many fish and the bay Vroulidia, which is situated over Kamares. There, you shall find sarguses, pandoras, red mullets, parrot fish and many more fish species.

Of course in any case you can try your luck with the coastal fishing, especially during the less "tourist" months that the piers and beaches are quieter.
