Path 8: Sklavogianni (Saint Thekla) - Church of Saint George - Karavas - Church of Saint George of Watchtowers - Sykamia

Serifos is ideal for hikes and trails. Eleven (11) paths have been mapped on the island; 1, 1A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 are sufficiently marked, and 7, 8 and 9 partially signposted. About 6.8 kilometers long, Path 8 is the longest of the numbered paths on the island and perhaps the most beautiful. It begins on the right, below the point (at the closed gate) where the path to the church of Saint Thekla ascends straight ahead. Along the way, we will descend to the little church of Saint George (Agios Georgios) with the circular stone base of a tower next to it; we will pass the beautiful beach of Karavas; we will ascend to Pyrgi and the area of Vatoudi, reaching the little white church of Saint George of Watchtowers (Ai Giorgi tu Vigli), which overlooks the sea from above; and we will continue on a fascinating path along the coast, ending up at the southwest end of the wonderful beach of Sykamia. Estimated walking time: 150 to 160 minutes.
