Highlights of the island of Serifos

Serifos used to be a mining island; the iron mines were operating until 1964 since the ancient times with shorter and longer breaks. Today, they are nothing but a tourist attraction. You can find them on the southwestern side of the island. There is also a monument here commemorating the victims of the 1919 miners’ strike. If you visit the mines, you must definitely see the mine of Koutalas as well. Unfortunately, you have to stop at the entrance, as entry is forbidden due to the risk of collapse. If you would like to get to know the history of Serifos better, we recommend that you visit the Folklore Museum and the Archaeological Museum in the capital.

You should also taste the locally-produced, sun-dried tomato. If you like fish, you will love this place!

Livadakia Beach

The long sandy beach is located next to the port of the village Livadi. Livadi is among the most popular tourist destinations, so there are a lot of services offered on the beach. You can find bars and restaurants 20 metres from the beach, and there are sunshades and chairs as well. The part of the beach near Livadi might be crowded, so if you would like to relax in a more peaceful environment, you should go further towards the other end.

Sikamia Beach

Should you prefer perfect relaxation, the beach of Sikamia is the place to go. This spot can be found in the northern part, far from most establishments. The only town nearby is Galani, but people rarely visit from there, so you can enjoy the beach practically in complete isolation.

This is also a family-friendly sandy-pebbly beach with slowly deepening water. It can be found on the southwestern side of the island. Its great advantage is that it is protected from the winds; the summer wind Meltemi hardly ever reaches the place. There are some beach bars here as well.
