Long weekend in Serifos

By mycountry In Travel
Why Serifos ? Because is part of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean sea. Which means: white cubic houses settled on sculptural rocks, surrounded by the crystal clear  waters of Aegean pelagon. It is only 2,5 hours from Piraeus and the distance between Livadi (port of the island) and Chora is only 20 minutes by car. Those are the two main places of the island, which you can eat, drink, shop local goodies, find accommodation, taxi, stroll, do some cloth and souvenirs shopping 😉
So, how I am spending my days in Serifos...
As soon as I arrive I am going straigh ahead to ''Yacht Club'' coffee/bar and have one of its famous sandwiches, greek homemade  bread stuffed with local ingredients, accompanied with greek coffee. It is Also famous for the cocktail list variety and quality. It'a way to gain time time until my room is settled up. 
First day I choose ''Psili ammo'' beach (thin sand) to dive. It's near the port where I am staying, has wonderful turquoise waters and a taverna to grab some lunch afterwards.
For a night drink i am visiting Chora, arriving before the sun goes down, and have the chance to gaze the amazing view from the top of the island.
Gathered around at the town hall's piazza you will find traditional and also modern bars and cafes, where you can have a coffee (what else), finger food, greek cuisine and drinks.
Another wonderful beach, which is close to Serifo's port is ''Agios Sostis''. Quiet small golf with trees to lay under their shade, essential thing for those who have fair skin, like mine, and get burn easily.
Since there is no canteen nor tavern near the beach, I usually visit ''Rizes hotel'' which is it on my way, and have some cold coffee or refreshments on the go. 
My basic intention is to spend as much time as possible on the beach. So I do not hesitate to go a bit far away, just to enjoy the calmness of Ganema, Vagia or Koutalas beach until the sun goes down! 
On the way back I choose to have dinner on a sea side tavern, like ''Kiklopas'' (Cyclope in greek... Serfios is said to be his home town in the ancient greek history) at Megalo Livadi (southwest of the island).
Where to eat : ''Marathoriza'', cute little place on the stairway to Chora. Greek local cuisine. ''Aloni'' for the amazing view!
Where to stay: ''Coco-mat Eco residence'' located in of the wonderful beaches of the island. ''Astrio'' for the panoramic view to the port and Chora. ''Studios Agaion'' (close to the port) value for money, lovely view to the beach of Livadi. Or from Air b&b ''The Yellow side b&b main house'', located in a tranquil area opposite the port, great view.
