The Evening Standard, the UK’s free daily newspaper, recently included Sifnos, an island of the Cyclades complex, in its section of Dream Destinations.

“…while most tourists descend on Mykonos to party or to Santorini to watch its famous sunset, those in the know are heading to its lesser known Cycladic neighbour, Sifnos, instead,” journalist Laura Hampson notes.
