Scenically Serifos takes some beating. The huge sweep of Levadia Bay is backed by a sweeping staircase of whitewashed buildings stretching up to an imposing chora at its peak. Down at bay level, the jetty on the south side faces a low line of hotels and beach restaurants on the north where you can even find some low-key night life. Over a low saddle of cliffs to the south is the smaller bay of Livadakia with a line of tavernas backing a long sandy beach.

Serifos is quite small and its coasts, especially those skirting its southern half, are quickly reached by road. The terrain is heavily indented and in the resulting bays you find wonderful stretches of sand and, on several, tavernas to make them perfect for a quiet day on the beach. After visiting any of the west coast villages you can return via the inland road and stop for a wander through the stunning chora whence you can watch the sunset and then the lights coming on round Levadia Bay.

There are one or two roads serving the northern end of the island, but this is wild, mountainous, undeveloped territory though with a surprising large number of small villages making it good for walkers; but any beaches in the north are likely to be windswept during the meltemi season (mostly July/August).

A stay on Serifos may be easily combined with one on Sifnos and also with the two islands to its north, Kythnos and Kea.
