Naxos - Νάξος

The biggest of Cyclades, Naxos combine a lot of things. The town and nearby beaches can be very crowded, but the southern part is full of quiet surprises! Unfinished ancient statuses as well as abandoned mine wagons, make you think that people that live here tend to be a little lazy. There is a remarkable castle, lots of ancient monuments, and don't miss a visit to Apiranthos village.

Andros - Άνδρος

A big cycladic island, close to the shore, sort of a family destination with a touch of cosmopolitan air. Its relatively green compared to the other Cyclades. Don't forget to taste frutalia, and don't miss the amazing "tis grias to pidima" beach!

Thirasia - Θηρασιά

A part of the same volcano, Thirasia is a lot smaller that Thira. A nice quiet little island, perfect for relaxation even during high season.

Thira (Santorini) - Θήρα (Σαντορίνη)

Much has been written about Santorini, but can never be enough. This is a very unique island, the volcano is just overwhelming, and the strange ancient civilisation is haunting. Wild beauty, magical atmosphere, great wine ...

Mykonos - Μύκονος

Although I'm not a Myconos type of person, the island is quite beautiful, with the windmills, nice beaches and of course Delos is nearby. Maybe there is a time of the year when it is more authentic to visit, who knows.

Folegandros - Φολέγανδρος

Another small Cycladic island with both an authentic "chora" and a beautiful harbour. Although much more touristic than Sikinos, it managed to maintain its colour so far.

Sikinos - Σίκινος

In this small island you'll discover the charm of simplicity. Its "chora" is one of the finest examples of Cycladic color. Most beaches are on the east coast and reached only by boats. Seafood here is guaranteed to be local and fresh.

Antiparos - Αντίπαρος

A little nice surprise close to Paros! Offers much more quiet and relaxing time in a very beautiful environment. Beaches are great, so is the cave, and a visit to the smaller uninhabited isles around the island is a must.

Paros - Πάρος

One of the most touristic Greek islands, full of people during peak season. Don't miss Naoussa. This is one of the islands for wind surfers. Sad, but express samina always comes in mind ...

Syros - Σύρος

The cosmopolitan island of Cyclades. Two worlds harmonically combined in Ermoupoli and Ano Syra, offering a variety of architecture and culture. Has a lot to offer, although the beaches are not particularly special. Vamvakaris is still wondering around ...
