There is a bunch of reasons to pack your bag right away and hop into Serifos. Here are a few to get you in the track.
1 The exoticism of her beaches is simply irrefutable
The reason why this one comes in the first place falls by its own weight: Serifos beaches are a pa-ra-di-se-on-Earth. The majority is non-organized, so you are welcomed to place your beachy stuff wherever you please and bloom into the sea, and the beauty and nature of the place is free of visual pollution. Waters are clean and crystal-clear. The hues of blue diversify from marine ones to turquoise with white bottoms, allowing you to enjoy the sea fauna, an authentic pleasure for snorkeling lovers.
2 An epic Hora
It shines at sunset up in the mountain like a white garland over the naked hills. Serifos Hora is the capital of the island, bright and proud she tells her own story. Horas all around the Cyclades were built in an astonishing hard way. Locals had nothing more than their donkeys and steep pebble stairways in order to protect themselves from the pirates.
3 Hidden spots waiting for audacious travelers
Villages barely inhabited, beaches only reached by boat or hiking paths and off road routes are just a clue of what Serifos hides.
4 Serifians wandering peacefully
Keeping alive their roots, they are simply authentic and always ready to help. They usually occupy themselves as small farmers cultivating local products. Potatoes, fleshy tomatoes, red onions, fresh eggs and cheese, all you can imaging Mediterranean stuff. Not to mention the gorgeous fresh fish from the fishing boats (called ‘kaikis’ in Greek) arriving early in the morning and selling their stunning pieces right in the port.
5 Rocky Mountains and golden hills
Discover her dozens of hiking paths. Its mountainous reliefs are a real challenge for the sport lovers. A natural paradise, arid like dessert in summer but exploiting in life during spring. When riding, Serifos is easy to wander around, her almost circled shape makes it handy and easy to travel.
Religious festivities, called ‘panigiria’, are a great opportunity to live first-hand the local tradition. It’s the best way to socialize and share moments with a summer festive air. Serifians’ generosity expresses itself by cooking serving and offering their wine and food to neighbors and foreigners. The biggest celebration all around Greece takes place on the eve of August 15th, where the down of Virgin Mary is honored.
7 Way of living
A chilled out, bohemian vibe is in the atmosphere. Once you step in Serifos you feel how time moves flawlessly. You will forget about time and phones even without realizing it. The easiness of salty haired beach people walking bare footed back and forth in the port and the white linens and vaporous dresses and espadrilles are mixed in a festive air of beautiful people.
8 Find your peaceful place even in high season
Serifos still offers you the privilege to find beaches where you are almost alone. There is no airport neither cruises docking so this obviously diminish the people that arrive in Serifos.
9 Taste of local shopping
You would not ever imagine finding such exquisite pieces of high quality linen, handmade ceramics or delicate pieces of jewelry. Tiny stores, sometimes hidden among the narrow alleys of Hora and the Port, open every season with their enchanting goods hanging on the walls.
