  This Cycladic island lies between Kythnos and Sifnos, 73 nautical miles from the port of Piraeus, with which it is linked by daily ferries. It covers an area of 73sq. km., and is hilly with rocky terrain, the highest peak being Tourlos (alt. 585 m). In the tiny valleys tucked amongst its stony slopes, the islanders manage to cultivate a few fruits trees, early vegetables, citrus friut and vines. Its subsoil is rich in iron ore, which has been exploited since antiquity. Its coastline, measuring some 82 kilometres, punctuated with superb sandy coves and bays in some places, steep cliffs and tumbled rocks in others. The climate of Serifos is healthy, with mild winters and cool summers thanks to the Ā«meltemiĀ», the prevailing northerly wind which blows through all the Cyclades. The residents are chiefly employed in fishing, shipping and, more recently, in the growing tourism industry.
