It is a quaint, remote cove, with no shore, ideal for underwater fishing and trekking. In the old days the cove and the nearby Marousou Cave, were served as a shelter for pirates. Sifneiko is situated 2,2 km. away from the capital, twenty-five minutes by foot. The road is half-way asphalt, half-way dirt and ends to a path. The access becomes rather difficult at the last 800 m. The nearest shops are found in the Mersini harbour.
Gerolimnionas is a beautiful untouched beach located 3km from Chora and can be reached after almost a 30 minutes' walk following the dirt road and then the narrow scenic path. It is sandy and its turquoise waters make it ideal for snorkeling and spear fishing.
