Welcome to Serifos

In Greek mythology, Serifos is where Perseus grew up, bringing back the Medusa's head to save his mother from the unwanted romantic attentions of Polydectes, and where the Cyclopes were said to live. There’s some fine walking on Serifos, and plenty to explore below the waves too.
