The second highest mountain is Agios Symeon, which is 530 meters high. In the western and southern coastline of Sifnos there are deep bays, such as those of Kamares, Vathy and Fykiada in the west, and those of Platys Gialos in the south. There are a number of smaller bays on the eastern coast, but it is difficult for boats to moor here.

Although Sifnos initially seems to be a dry island, it is actually a very fertile island. The inhabitants of the island are mostly farmers, fishermen, cattle farmers and certain crafts such as that of ceramic art are practiced on the island as a profession. On the island are olive groves, vineyards, lemon and orange trees.
