Serifos is an island with a quaint beauty, preserving at the same time the traditional Aegean character. The whole island is a balcony to the northwest all blue and sunny Aegean. Bare, undulating hills interspersed with small, fertile valleys cover this picturesque island. The rocky coastline is deeply indented with a succession of coves and bays. The curious rock formations resemble human figures. What will surprise every visitor is that Serifos has an 84 km of coastline and 12 km of those are sandy beaches.
The capital of the island, Hora, is built on a vertical rock creating an amazing picture with its small white houses crawling up towards the top of the castle and its windmills gloriously watching the port. The Venetian castle is a beautiful and attractive dazzling white washed village on a steep hillside. Hora offers breathtaking views and the scenery to the island and the sea is magnificent. The village is divided into two districts, Epano Hora and Kato Hora. In Epano Hora the square with the Town Hall and the churches of Agios Ioannis and Agios Athanassios are places for a visit. In Hora there is also a small Archaeological Museum. Surrounding it, you'll have the opportunity to see, many small churches of classical island architecture. The most important of them is the church of Agios Ioannis Theologos (St. John), which is carved on a rock, on top of the ruins of the ancient temple of Athina (Minerva).
The Cave of Koutalas (Cyclop) is something to see. Its walls had crushed down and it was accidentally discovered when its entrance became connected to the galleries for purposes of mineral extraction. It features oddly shaped stalactites and stalagmites, while various findings that have been unearthed from the cave suggest that the latter was used as a place of worship in antiquity.
The village of Panagia (which takes its name - meaning "Our Lady" - from the dedication of a fine 10th century church) commands a panoramic view of the whole island. There are many cafes, bars and a few discos available to you. Having a meal on the beach is an experience.
Galani is a nice village with the fortified Moni (Monastery) of Taxiarchon, which contains 18th century frescoes and Byzantine manuscripts.
Livadi the island's port set in a wide bay with a horse-shoe-shaped tree fringed sandy beach. There are plenty of hotels, rooms to let and tavernas available, and is handy for the nearby beaches. Western to the port is Livadakia bay, an expansion of Livadi. It has a secluded sandy beach, a campsite, water sport facilities and tavernas.
