Glyfo is one of the three beaches of the small fishing village of Faros
. It is located on the south coast of Sifnos
island, in a curved bay with view to the Monastery of Chrisopigi
Glyfo is next to the main beach of Faros, and you can only access it on foot via a short path among the houses. It is sometimes called Vlycho by the locals but both are one and the same place. Many consider it one of the best beaches of Sifnos because of the silky sand, the shallow blue water and the sheltered location. Unfortunately, due to the small size, it often gets crowded in July and August - in some days it looks almost empty and in others you can hardly find a spot to put your towel.
From Glyfo starts a hiking trail which leads to the church of Agios Charalampos, the neighbor beach of Apokofto
and the Monastery of Chrisopigi. The trail is relatively short and pleasant, as it runs parallel to the sea, and you can meet people both during the day and in the evenings.
