Even though being a small island, Serifos is very impressive for those who sail in the Aegean with its numerous lacy beaches and the numerous beautiful bays that lead to sandy beaches with crystal clear waters. The mining activity has ceased many years ago, though in many beaches remains of facilities for ore loading in the ships are distinguished rendering them a special character of outdoor industrial museum. There are many moorings and some of them are safe in all weather conditions –such as the bay of Koutala.
The capes of the Cyclops and Spathi will easily lead you to the only organized port of Serifos, i.e. Livadi (VHF: channel 12), with a depth of 2-6m. Mooring is safe in all weather conditions, except for the south ones. Entering the bay, particular attention is needed across the beach of Karavi, where there is a reef. You can moor at the western side of the pier or off shore without worrying about ‘meltemia’ (north winds). The pier is usually noisy. The yachts moor at its northern side as well.
Other moorings. Kalo Ampeli, which is relatively protected during ‘meltemia’, Koutalas, the best mooring on the west of the island even when the strong northern winds blow, neighboring Vagia, Malliadiko which is safe during the western and eastern winds, Megalo Livadi, where there is a jetty for fishing and touristic boats, Avessalos and Platys Gialos, where you will find a small dock only for boats with small draught.
