Perched on the western edge of the Cyclades island complex, Serifos is just a two-hour speedboart ride away from the port of Piraeus. With her imposing main town of Chora, built at 200 metres above sea level, dozens of picturesque villages, wonderful beaches and a long history, the so-called “Iron Lady” of the Aegean is intriguing and inviting at the same time.
Here you will experience Greek summer at its best: the beautiful and unforgettable shades of white and blue, the people friendly and hospitable, the sea clear and precious as a sapphire. Serifos is full of sights and stories – to discover them, just visit a village, a beach or one of the many remnants of its times past, scattered all over the island.

TRAVEL TO SERIFOS
Serifos can be reached by boat by the port of Piraeus. During the summer period, there are itineraries operated daily both with regular ferries and speedboat carriers. It takes 5 hours to reach the island with the regular ferry and half that time with the speedboat.
Connection to the rest of the Cyclades is also regularly available, with Serifos connecting with many islands to the north (Kythnos, Andros, Tinos, Mykonos), the south (Sifnos, Sikinos, Folegandros, Milos, Anafi, Santorini) and the east (Paros, Naxos, Amorgos), as well as with the island of Crete via Milos.
During the rest of the year, there are routes available every other day with the regular ferry and more sparse speedoboat itineraries.The closest airports to Serifos island are those on the islands of Milos and Paros.
Serifos’ most beautiful sea bed is located just 10 minutes north of the port, at the entrance of Koutalas bay.
In Vagia you will find a natural haven from the Aegean summer winds, a lush sandy shore, crystal clear waters and a glorious sunset. The colorful pebbles at the bottom of the sea and the sweet water that streams from parts of the beach give Vagia a unique character, which has earned it a spot in the list of Natura 2000 protected sites.
With utter respect for Vagia’s natural beauty, COCO-MAT Eco Residences Serifos hotel blends in with the scenery perfectly, allowing you to make the best of your stay by the sea day and night.
ACCESS TO VAGIA AND HOTEL
The nearest airport is Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”. Athens’ port “Piraeus” is approximately 45 kilometers from the airport (50 minutes by taxi). Serifos is connected daily with Piraeus by high speed vessels (2,5 hour trip) and ferries (5 hour trip). When you reach Livadi port, just follow the signs towards Livadakia and keep going to the south west side of the island. Vagia is located just 6,5 km from the port and you can easily access the beach by car.
Distances in Serifos are rather short and you won’t need more than 35 minutes to travel even to the most remote spots on the island.
