Vous (Greek: Βους; Translation: Ox) is a small island 2 kilometres off the coast of Serifos in The Cyclades, Greece. It received its name from its shape, which was an ox. There is no known populated place on the island, as it is too small in area for the creation of a village; the island has a perimeter of approximately 2 kilometres and is 570 metres at its longest points. The island is a popular attraction for tourists seeking a fishing holiday in the Greek Islands. Administratively, it is part of the municipality of Serifos.
