Chryssopigi is situated at the southern coast of the island, within an impressive natural environment by the seaside. The fans of nature consider this place as one of the best in Sifnos. Chryssopigi is in fact a rocky peninsula between Faros and Platys Gialos, at a distance of 8 kilometers southeastern to Apollonia. The rock, the Monastery and the landscape of the area constitute the poles of attraction for the numerous visitors of the place.
Accommodation and food and drink in small coastal taverns are available in the area around.
The most important sightseeing and the characteristic of the area is the monastery of Panaghia, dedicated to Virgin Mary. The monastery was constructed in 1650, when the devout residents of the island found the icon of Zoodochos Pege (Virgin Mary, the Spring of Life), which, according to the tradition, had miraculously arrived there from the sea. If you feel like, you may stay for a few days in the Monastery; you will be housed in one of the few cells available for the visitors. If you are around on the eve of the Ascension Day (in late May or early June), you may take part to the great local religious feast (“panighyri”), taking place at the Monastery.
For any problem you should return to Apollonia, 8 kilometers far away to the northwest.
Access from the port of Kamares and from Apollonia is possible by taxi as well as by rented or private car and motorbikes.
