Serifos Page 1
Serifos, with a population of 1,500, lies 73 nautical miles from Piraeus. Serifos has a land mass of 73 sq. km and its coastline is 70 km. long. Serifos' closest Cycladic neighbor is Sifnos.
In antiquity the island was a prosperous iron and copper mining center which minted its own frog-embossed coinage.
Serifos has sandy beaches but is quite barren. However, Serifos has its own unique species of the Carnation. Sirifos also grows olives and almonds. The sea around Serifos is clean and the fish fresh and relatively inexpensive. Livadi is the greenest spot on the island and where many Germans and French tourists like to visit in summer. Many yachts moor within the protection of the harbor. The islands hilltop village of Hora has a Byzantine-Venetian castle. There is also a stalactite cave and Greek Orthodox Monastery. Serifos makes it own wine from the hardy rhodites grape. All the beaches are accessible on foot and are unspoiled.
