"When I Saw The Water Lapping..." Serifos Island by johngayton

Serifos Island Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 56 photos

...up to the table legs of those beachfront bars..

...I reckoned I'd kinda like this place ;-)

And disappointed I certainly wasn't (apart from the laundry room at the campsite not being open - bejeez I was starting to kick-up a bit after a week on the road).

This was a cracking little island with its beaches, its beachfront bars and the fact that it is not overly developed. There are of course all the tourist bits but subtly done; nothing, certainly in late May, to take away from the laid-back Greek charm and friendliness of the place.

Yep, when the sun is hot and the beers are cold, well worth a visit!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great Beaches
  • Cons:Laundry Not Open (Phew still stinky!!)
  • In a nutshell:There are worse places as the water cools your toes ;)

    All your commentaries are making me want to do this again! Anyone else? Could be some extra special low prices this coming season? Different islands to visit and new beaches to explore.

      Unfortunately can't do next year Janet but 2014 should be possible.
