Kamares ( Sifnos ) is the port of the island which is 6 km from Apollonia. It is the largest village. With its unique natural beauty and picturesque settlement, it attracts many visitors each year who prefer to make it their base while on the island. The destination (Arches), took its name from the many caves that were previously in the region and specifically the rocky south coast. Today, in place of these arches and caves, they have built a small, picturesque village and "sirmata" - underground warehouses that keep the small fishing boats safe in winter. The central settlement extends on the right side of the bay, which is the port of the island.
