DAY 2 - July 7 - Serifos
Our arrival on the island of Serifos was.... adventurous! Upon arrival at Piraeus Port, we were told that our boat was delayed. Finally we sailed off on a different boat with a two-hour delay. We arrived in Serifos at 8:30 pm. The hotel's mini bus which would drive us to Coralli Bungalows as we had agreed wasn't there! We called the hotel several times but there was no answer. So, we tried to find a taxi and walked to the taxi station about 1 km carrying our luggage. No taxis!!! Our last resort was to hire a car. While I was keeping an eye on our luggage, Alkis went to the car rental office, but he was told that there were no cars available at that time and that we could have one in the morning! I was beginning to believe that we'd spend our first night on the street when a man at the car rental office asked us where we were going and we told him that we had booked a week at Coralli Bungalows. "Well," he replied, " I am the owner of Coralli Bungalows." He called the mini bus driver who was there for us in 5 minutes. The driver said that Seaways Company hadn't informed them about the delay. He was there for us at 6:30 pm and seeing that there was no boat, he left! By 10:00 pm, we were having a romantic dinner at Takis Restaurant - right on the beach! All's well that ends well.
DAY 3 - July 8 - Serifos
After a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast, we couldn't wait to swim in those crystal-clear waters just a few steps away from our bungalow. It was sheer bliss! We spent the whole day at the beach, had a great lunch at the hotel's restaurant and, in the evening, we walked to Livadi where we enjoyed dinner at one of the many restaurants of the area.
DAY 4 - July 9 - Serifos
Serifos has an area of 75 m² , 70 km of coastline. and a population of about 1200 inhabitants. It is a small, peaceful island that hasn't experienced yet the dizzying tourist development of many of the other islands of the Cyclades such as Mykonos, Naxos or Santorini. Serifos makes time stand still and offers a unique feeling of harmony and relaxation. It was yet another great day at the beach.
