The island of Serifos is located in the West Cyclades island complex, between the islands of Kythnos and Sifnos. Its geographical coordinates are 37°09′45’’N, 24°29′12’’E.
It is a little bit more than 70 nautical miles from the port of Piraeus, with which it connects -daily during the Summer- with ferry schedules.
The easy access to Serifos from the nearby islands of Cyclades (Milos, Kimolos, Paros, Syros), and its short distance from Athens, make the island a favorite destination for hundreds of cruisers and sail boats every year, while occasionally the International Aegean Sailing Rally passes by.
The island spans 75 square kilometers, with a coastline of about 80 kilometers, consisting of bays, coves and capes that give to Serifos an almost round shape.
Three small islets can be found nearby: “Piperi” in the north, “Serifopoula” northeast and “Vous” in the east. The latter was named after its shape, which looks like an ox lying down (vous: ox), with its back and head raised.
The Municipality of Serifos belongs to the Region of Milos, its capital is Ermoupoli in Syros island and it belongs to the County of Cyclades, with which it shares the same mild and cool climate.
