The island is very small and compact, so the best option is to explore Serifos by foot.
The smallest island belonging to the Cyclades often has the largest appeal; steep mountainside and verdant hillside encompass the charming streets and simplistic character – creating an experience that is authentically Greek. The hotels and apartments are basic and the infrastructure is typical of the environment, but you don’t come to Serifos for the architecture; the golden sand beaches next to deep blue waters are among the most beautiful in Greece. Psili Ammos Beach is perhaps the most beautiful, decorated in tropical foliage and hosting water that is clear and safe to dive, many tourists choose this as their haven for the holiday.
The beaches are the obvious highlight of the island, drawing in numerous visitors each summer, but there is much more to Serifos than the alluring shoreline. The harbour is an idyllic spot of picturesque scenery and quaint cafes, perfect for whiling away a few hours amid stunning surrounding. The cuisine at the restaurants gracing the harbour is quintessentially Greek, serving seafood fresh from the waters.
Serifos is a small Greek island laying in the Aegean Sea, laying to the southeast off the mainland of Greece. The port is very busy all year round, offering crossings to neighbouring islands, as well as sailings to Piraeus on the south east coast.
