Sifnos - Σίφνος

Like a mountain in the middle of the sea, Sifnos doesn't have the beaches of the other west cycladic islands, but the scenery of the villages is breathtaking. The atmosphere is rather cosmopolitan.

Poliegos - Πολύαιγος

Half the size of, and just one mile from Kimolos, this islet has some magnificent beaches, as well as many sea-surface caves. Once inhabited, now mostly goats live here; its name actually means "many goats". Nice hike to the lighthouse, with a rewarding view.

Kimolos - Κίμωλος

The little surprise of West Cyclades. The pre historic volcano left its traces all over the island, forming amazingly shaped and colored rocks. The sea water is so clear, that makes you want to drink it! The port, the "chora", and the very few other little settlements are very scenic. A great hike is to "skiadi", there are plenty of beautiful beaches, and it is never too crowded.

Serifos - Σέριφος

Such a small island, so many incredible beaches! Plus one of the most scenic "chora" of Cyclades, and a few very interesting little villages overlooking the sea. Relaxing holidays for everyone!

Kythnos - Κύθνος

A mix of Kea and Serifos, this suprisingly less popular island has a lot to offer. Numerous beautiful sandy beaches - Kolona is simply unique! -, two very different styled scenic villages - Chora and Driopis -, and a few fishing villages. It does worth a visit!

Kea (Tzia) - Κέα (Τζια)

The surprise close to the shore has a style of its own! More colorful than the rest of Cyclades, and with enough plantation. Still Ioulis is a very beautiful and unique "chora", so is the port of Korissia. Magnificent sandy beaches all over the island, and plenty of interesting footpaths for hiking, and some famous shipwrecks for divers. Ancient cities, and my favorite; Kea's lion!
