Serifos, typical Cycladic island

Ideal for a relaxed holiday, Sérifos is a typical Cycladic island with white villages, quiet harbours, golden beaches, bare hills and beautiful landscapes. The mild tourism growth has not affected the island’s nature and traditional features.

Perseus and his mother, Danae, were forced to reach the island locked in a trunk. Perseus took revenge on the king of Sérifos Polydeuces by killing the mermaid Medusa and by showing her decapitated head to him. Polydeuces became petrified in horror. The island used to be rich in the ancient times thanks to its minerals.

Apart from relishing the joys of sea, sun and sand on the 72 fantastic beaches of the island, one can go cycling or walking along the seven trails on the island, scuba diving in the old mines or in the WWII wreck, or sightseeing in the fortress-like monastery of Taxiárches, built in the 16th century.
For the romantic ones, the sunset at Áyios Konstantinos is one of a kind whereas the adventurous ones can take a trip to…the centre of the Earth! Follow the central gallery of a mine in Meyálo Livádi all the way through the mountain to the beach of Kalóyeros (in Koutalas bay). A run-down imposing picture of bridges, railways, and wagons will be etched on your memory once you have visited this underground mining museum.
