Livadi (meadow) is the only harbor in the island. There are two alternatives here. You can either dock stern-to on the south side of the quay or anchor off. Either way there is good shelter from the meltemi (the Etesians) (the Etesians) despite the strong gusts. With a strong south-east wind there is considerable swell into the bay.
The docking area is usually very crowded and noisy. Yachts also anchor moor stern-to on the north side of the quay, but it is not to be recommended in strong northerlies as the holding is not good.
Many cruisers prefer the alternative of anchoring off. Anchor at 6 meters towards the north-west of the bay but stay clear from the area where the ferries maneuver.
Livadakia is one of the most popular sandy beaches on Serifos, situated on the south-western side of the island below Chora, the beautiful capital. This area has many beaches as well, like Livadi, and Avlomonas beach, but usually Livadakia is the most crowded.
Lia is one of the very well reputed beaches on Serifos on the north-eastern shore at 5 km east of the harbour of Livadi and is surrounded by great scenery. The road leading to Lia beach begins at the end of the harbour of Livadi, so it is not difficult to find.
Psili Ammos is one of the most popular beaches on Serifos located on the east coast, at about 8 km north from the port of Livadi. The available options for reaching Psili Ammos are on foot, which takes around an hour from Livadi; or by moped, which rentals are available at the port as well.
The Serifos Scuba Divers school was established in early 2008 by people who love the sea and spend much of their time there. In addition to their extensive CVs and rich experience, the training staff are mainly known for their consistency and patience with difficult tasks.
