The anchorages on Serifos:
Livadi is a big and the only port of Serifos. Located in the southeastern part of the island in a bay protected from the wind, Meltemi, it has a good mooring pier for ships and facilities for yachts and tourists including a bank, post office, gas station, pharmacy, Port Police Station, travel agencies, shops and restaurants.
Around the S Coast, there is a visible lighthouse, Ák Spathi, along with the fish farm on the E side of the cape. From the N and E sides rise the white houses of Chora. Mooring is possible in the bay or jetty off the village on the SE side of the bay. The S side of the jetty is better in the summer because of the wind, Meltemi. N side isn’t preferable because of the sandy, muddy and weedy bottom. Anchor outside the swimming spot. Because the bottom is sand and weed it could be difficult to anchor so the second anchor might be a good idea.
Livadi port is the starting point for boats to beaches, buses to charming villages, mines and the historic castle of the Archangels, the White Tower. You can spot here cobbled streets and whitewashed houses of chora, one of the most beautiful choras in the Cyclades.
If you want to relax without walking for miles, head to the nearby Livadakia beach with sandy, stone-free entry to warm, shallow clean seawater. Thanks to the trees on the beach there is some shade. You can take a dive into crystal waters and admire whitewashed houses scattered around the island. It’s a perfect, not very crowded place for young adults and families with children.
Paralia Karavi beach
The beach is a bit further but still close to the harbor. Despite the hills surrounding this beautiful, quiet secluded beach, there is no shade so prepare yourself accordingly. Paralia has very coarse sand, and it’s a bit difficult to enter the water because of pebbles and a very slippery rock shelf in the shallow water.
