In mythology, Serifos was the island that Danaë and her son Perseus ended up on after being set adrift by her father, Acrisius, who was warned by an oracle that his grandson would be the one to kill him. These days visitors arrive via the same natural harbour, ringed by cliffs, at the top of which the island's main town sits, all whitewashed and gleaming smoothly in the sun. The interior is dark and rocky cut though into stone terraces, but the coast is a ring of beautiful beaches.
