Cafe
“The oldest and most famous bar in Livadi. I always like it here. It's a breakfast place, a café and bar at night!!! Highly recommended...Has a great view of the port”

Restaurant
“This restaurant is not on the port by the sea but diagonally across from the post office on the road behind the port. It is more of a 'chic' restaurant (as chic as it can get in Serifos). Only open in the evenings and does not have many tables”

Kafenio
“On the main square, this is the 'oldest' and most populr cafe in Chora! Some savoury stuff to nibble on, sweets and check out 'rakomelo'. A warm alcoholic drink from Crete (raki) with honey!”

Restaurant
“This is a taverna with homemade food and a great location overlooking Platis Gialos beaches (there are 2-3 next to eachother). The beaches aren't amazing but the overall location is great!”

“Amazing place (the photo btw has nothing to do with the place). This taverna has THE most amazing view of the port. Food is traditional Greek cooked food + grilled. Portions are big. Obviously very popular early evenings so go early (they do not make reservations)”

Church
“A lovely beach with thin golden sand and only a few trees. We suggest you go early there so that you get the chance to have some shadow. There one can find also a traditional cycladic church that shares the name of the beach.”

Natural Feature
“This beach is the typically the favourite with kids. It has Super fine sand and the waters are super shallow until quite far in, so really safe and fun for kids. Sometimes it has some nice small waves which again the kids (and parents) love. It has 2 tavernas. (If it gets really windy, don't go there. You'll be whipped by the sand.) ”

Natural Feature
“This is the village on the mountain also knows as Chora. Lots of tavernas, bars cafes and an amazing view from the very top. You can take car (but difficult to park during peak season) or take the bus”

Beach
“Another long amazing sandy beach with amazing blue water. There is a taverna at one end (also the beach has big pebbles at this end of the beach in case it gets windy). Good for kids. There is also a taverna that is on the hill overlooking the beach. There are trees for shade but you need to go early to 'reserve' one”

“The oldest and most popular taverna in Serifos. We don't typically go there because it's always packed but don't let that stop you from going”
