Beaches

 

Agios Sostis

One of most scenic beaches on Serifos. It consists of two small coves, one of which is wind-protected. It’s quiet, with sand and shingles, crystalline waters and no facilities.

Livadakia

Popular beach with golden sand, clean waters, tamarisk trees and many facilities. It is located next to the port of Livadi (and its crowded beach Avlomonas), at the island’s camping site. If you fancy a more isolated cove, you can walk towards the neighboring beach of Karavi (non-organized and nudist friendly).

Sykamia

One of the longest beaches on Serifos, a northern one and therefore exposable to winds. It is a beautiful sandy and pebbly seashore with blue-green waters, a few trees and a tavern. It’s secluded and very tranquil.

Ganema

Azure waters, golden sand and tamarisk trees that provide nice shadow make this beach one of the island’s most beautiful and serene. It is located at Koutalas bay, next to the beach of Vagia (similar in looks, but treeless). Some taverns are available in the area.8.0

Psili Ammos

A long, sandy beach with lovely shallow waters, a few trees and many amenities. It can get windy and it’s also favored by yachts.8.0

Things to see & do

 

The old mines

: The coastal settlements of Megalo Livadi and Koutalas are deeply associated with the island’s long and turbulent mining history. The sights of the region include the remains of the old mine facilities, the impressive mining ladder, the former head quarters of the company who exploited the area, as well as the memorial dedicated to the workers who lost their lives during the great miners’ strike in 1916, claiming better working conditions.

Day trip to Sifnos

: It takes less than an hour to reach the nearby cosmopolitan Sifnos, one of the most popular Greek islands.

Activities in Serifos

: Hiking is highly recommended in the island’s well-marked routes (try the most popular trail: Chora-Kastro-Livadi). Cycling, diving, windsurfing, sailing and fishing are also on the agenda.

Local and delicious

: In Serifos you can have marathotiganites (fennel pancakes), sun dried tomatoes, revithada (chickpeas baked in the oven with rosemary), fava (also made of chickpeas), xinomyzithra cheese and louza (type of sausage).

More Serifos’ sites

: At the area of Koutalas, you can also see the Hellenistic Lefkos Pyrgos (White Tower), the remains of the Gria Castle and the throne of the Cyclops (known as Psaropyrgos). Also, the cave of Cyclops (Cave Koutalas), a former ancient religious centre, with remarkable stalactites and stalagmites.

Moni Taxiarchon

: A monument of great architectural and religious value, situated close to the village of Galini. This fortified monastery was built in 1572 and it’s dedicated to Serifos’ patron saints, Michail and Gavriil. It features beautiful 18th c frescoes and other important relics.
