This beach is excellent, with fine sand and many tamarisk trees for shade. Definitely one of the best on the island. It is also an unorganized beach without sunbeds, so it’s recommended for you to have the necessary things with you. Please take note that the access here is also a bit difficult.

2. Agios Sostis Beach

Another magnificent beach on Serifos that’s full of tamarisk trees that serve as shade. From the beach, you will see a small church which is very beautiful and if you are on the beach, do not miss the opportunity to visit it. The view from there is very wonderful!

3. Monastery Evaggelistrias

Above the large Livadi is the monastery of Evangelistrias or otherwise Panagia Akrotiriani. In this small monastery, admire the wonderful hagiographies. It is isolated and can be reached via an unpaved road. A short stop here is absolutely worth it.

4. Ganema Beach

Probably one of the best beaches on the island. It has a traditional tavern at the end of the beach behind the trees. This beach is relatively protected when strong winds blow. The waters are clear and have a shade of green.

5. Livadakia Beach

A large sandy beach that also has many tamarisk trees that offer shade to everyone. One of the few organized beaches with bars and taverns that operate. It is located very close to the port and the waters are crystal clear and it’s usually doesn’t have waves so it’s safe for small children.

6. Kastro

It is not possible to go to Serifos and not visit Chora. Uniquely built on the rock of the Aegean, imposing, with amazing positive energy, it is the best place to stay on the island. Through an easy path, you can go up or down to the port. Wander its alleys and enjoy the imposing view from every point!

7. Moni Taxiarchon Monastery

A purely Cycladic monastery cared for by an abbot together with a monk. A temple that dates back from the 17th century. It is worth seeing the icons and the iconostasis of the past. Take some time to browse. It is definitely rewarding.

8. Kalo Ambeli beach

One of the most beautiful beaches on the island with absolute tranquility, in an idyllic landscape that you will be very lucky if you’re there during sunset. Compared to other beaches, Kalo Ambeli Beach is less crowded so you’d have a great time relaxing here.

9. The Mines of Serifos

If you are in Serifos, do not forget to visit the old mines in the bay of Megalo Livadi. You will be transported to another atmosphere, allowing yourself to travel several decades back in time and take the place of miners. Search and read the shocking history of mines and labor mobilizations you will never regret it.

10. Agios Ioannis Beach

On the Livadi side and not far from Psili Ammos, it is similar to the latter but wider and even more shaded by tamarisks. It’s very silent here because it’s almost deserted, however, it has the defect of being stony and having large stones, making it uncomfortable and not suitable for long stays. But for a short time of relaxation, this is recommended.
