Travel to Serifos

Serifos is a charming island, with rugged mining sites, a long history and its own distinct Cycladic flair. The calm atmosphere puts your mind at ease from the moment of arrival. Despite its arid and wild landscape, Serifos is gracefully embraced by the deep blue colors of the Aegean Sea and has some great beaches for relaxing and swimming.

According to Greek mythology: When Acrisius was warned by an oracle that his own grandson would kill him, he cast his daughter (Danaë) and her infant son Perseus adrift at sea in a wooden chest, which came ashore at Serifos.

Serifos, an island of strong contrasts with an active magnetic field created by its metalliferous rocks, is an ideal proposal for relaxing holidays in a Cycladic environment with an intense nightlife. It will captivate you at first sight.

The enchanting Chora is the capital of the island with white houses, windmills, and stonepaved walkways, built on an almost perpendicular rock. With its breathtaking views over the Aegean sea it is classified among the most beautiful capital towns of the Greek islands. Serifos is with its charming paths and astonishing views an obvious choice for hikers.
