Serifos is located 80 nautical miles from Piraeus. Nearby islands include Sifnos, Milos and Kimolos. It has a land area of 75km2. The capital Chora is impressively built high above the port, with leeward beaches extending to a combined length of 10 kms.
Serifos is an island with great history which began in the first Cycladic period (3rd millennium BC). It experienced a great economic growth during the 6th century BC due to its rich minerals. The island was occupied by the Romans, later by the Ottomans, and finally joined the newly established Greek state in 1830.
The tranquillity of the island is very much in evidence but it equally offers modern amenities and facilities including bank services, helipad, yacht marina, car rentals, modern taverns with delicious food and excellent nightlife.
