The Greek island of Serifos is located in the Cyclades group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea to the south of Kythnos and to the north west of Sifnos. It is also around 170 km from the port of Piraeus. Greek mythology has it that the island is where Danae and her infant son, Perseus, were washed ashore after her father Acrisius set them adrift at sea in a wooden chest. When Perseus returned to the island with the head of the Gorgon Medusa, he turned Polydektes, the King of Serifos, into stone as punishment for the King's attempt to marry his mother by force.
Home to the island's port is the town of Livadi and is the main centre of tourism on the island. There are many restaurants, cafes bars and clubs in the town and is where most hotels are located. The town's beach is long and sandy and has crystal clear water. During the summer, many of sailing boats and yachts can be found anchored in the calm waters of this naturally protected bay.
The island is accessed by conventional and high speed ferries. During the summer months, there are ferries that connect Serifos with other nearby islands, such as Sifnos, Naxos, Paros, Santorini and Kythnos.
The Greek island of Sikinos is one of the Cyclades group of islands and lies between the islands of Ios and Folegandros. Unlike many of its Greek island neighbours, Sikinos does not attract large numbers of visitors and therefore has managed to retain a great deal of its Greek charm. Chora is the island's capital and is one of the smallest and most picturesque villages in the Cyclades and has traditional Cycladic architecture and is built on the slopes of a mountain and comes complete with stunning views of the Aegean Sea. Popular attractions on the island include the Monastery of Episkopi which was first thought to be an ancient temple of the God Apollo but is now known to have the signs of Roman mausoleum architecture. It was built in the 3rd century AD and was modified to a Christian church, complete with a dome and bell tower, in the 17th century.
From the port is Sikinos, ferry services operate to the port of Piraeus with a crossing time of around 3 hours and 30 minutes by high speed ferry and 7 hours and 30 minutes by conventional ferry. Sikinos is also connected by boat with the islands of Folegandros. Ios, Santorini, Serifos, and Sifnos.
