Photographer's Note

Vathi, one of the 12 villages on Sifnos, is on the SW part of the island.
Vathi, meaning deep, takes its name from the depth of the sea in the bay/harbor, as well as from the fact that the harbor here is situated at the low end of the surrounding area. A quiet and picturesque village, accessible till a few years ago only by boat or a trail, now also by land through the newly built road, The old trail as well as the new two-lane “highway” reaches Vathi through Katavati
On the right end of Vathi's beach, the shape of the horseshoe, the church of Taxiarchis (.of Archangel ?) with the originality of double dome is built litteraly on the sea.

Vathi has rooms for rent, restaurants, and grocery shops. In the old days, Vathi was famous for its exceptionally well-made ceramic pots, which were exported to the nearby Cycladian islands, but also as far as Crete, Cyprus and Alexandria. This old tradition of pottery making is still alive in Vathi. Make sure that you will visit the pottery workshop and gallery.
