The Cycladic island of Serifos is a combination of beautiful landscapes, traditional
villages, crystal waters and exceptional hospitality. This touristic island which
has preserved its character and its picturesque character offers calm and relaxed
holidays to its visitors. The golden sand beaches of Serifos and its beaches, hidden
behind tall rocks, will surely impress you. Serifos has certainly lots of beautiful
landscapes and places worth visiting. The island’s Hora, which is built high on a
rock, stands proud through the years with its traditional white little houses and
its picturesque, narrow alleys. One of the most famous beaches of the island is Psili
Ammos from where you do not want to leave even when it’s dark. Serifos certainly
possesses some other beautiful beaches as well, like Platis Gialos, Agios Sostis,
Sykamia, Koutalas and Livadakia. Although you will be tired by the time you reach
the Castle, the view will be most rewarding. It is also worth visiting some of the
caves with their stalactites and stalagmites and the Folk Museum of Serifos, of course.
Although nightlife on the island is not frantic, you can enjoy the cuisine of the
island at some seaside taverns and have a drink at one of the bars. Book your ferry

You can now book ferry tickets online for Serifos via Aktoploika.gr. If you plan
to travel during July and August, it’s best if you have booked several days or weeks
earlier to avoid hitches. You should also know that round-
Transportation from Livadi to Hora, Psili Ammos and Megalo Livadi is not frequent enough and you may need to wait some time in order to be transported. However, there are some taxis on the island that will take you fast and comfortably to your destination. In order to explore the island, which is relatively big so you cannot visit all the beaches on foot, you can rent a vehicle to move around comfortably and freely. You should, however, book the vehicle before your arrival on the island as, especially during summer, you may find it difficult to rent a car or a motorbike due to the increased number of tourists.
You can move around Serifos island in two ways, by bicycle or by taking one of the local buses, that connect the two main settlements, Livadi and Hora, as well as those between them. That’s because Serifos’ roads are too narrow and you’ll face difficulties to park your car, so local buses will untie your hands. Routes are not frequent, however you’ll save time and you’ll keep your nerves low, instead of vainly searching for a parking for your car. You can buy your ticket inside the bus, from the bus driver or the collector.

small openings in the walls and the only entrance (low loggia) at a height of 4 meters,
without a permanent ladder, to guard the icon of Seneschals that had to be saved
