Cyclades Islands

Dazzling white villages, golden beaches and clear azure water are just the start of what the Cyclades have to offer


Within easy reach of Athens, these are the Aegean’s most precious gems. Their colours are blue and white like the Greek flag. The islands come in all sizes and, though the ingredients are the same – incomparable light, translucent water, lustrous white buildings and bare rock, each one has its own distinct character. The ancients gave this island group the name Cyclades because they viewed them as forming a hypothetical circle (kyklos) around the sacred island of Delos. According to myth, the islands were the scraps that remained after a battle between giants. In reality, they resulted from gigantic geological events like earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. 

The group’s stars, Mykonos and Santorini, need no introduction but the lesser-known islands, big and small, are just as rewarding. For starters, try aristocratic Syros, cosmopolitan Paros, the sculptors’ Tinos and big, generous Naxos. Whether you’re travelling with your family, friends or sweetheart, you’re bound to find your summer paradise in the sun in the Cyclades.

For decades, this gleaming white Cycladic island has been one of the top most popular destinations in the Mediterranean.

One of the most enchanting yet unknown islands of the Cyclades, Tinos is the religious centre of the country thanks to the church of Panayia Meyalohari (the Blessed Virgin Mary). Pilgrims from all over the country come here to fulfil their vows and to seek comfort.
Naxos is the biggest and the greenest island in Cyclades with impressively high mountains, fertile valleys, lush green gorges, stunning seascapes and traditional villages perched high on mountain tops, where the inhabitants still wear their traditional dress and live off the fruits of the land! Naxos is also an island of beautiful old churches, monasteries and Venetian castles coexisting harmoniously with Cycladic cubic houses.

The island of the film “The Big Blue” Did you know that the 1988 movie “The Big Blue” with Jean Reno was shot on the island of Amorgos, at the south eastern edge of the Cyclades? Parts of the island reach a considerable height above sea level, offering superb views out over the Archipelago, Amorgos is one of the most impressive Cycladic islands, boasting marvellous beaches with azure waters, gorgeous caves, ideal spots for diving, scenic bays and ancient footpaths leading through its steep rocky terrain…
The islet of Antiparos, lying southwest of Paros, is ideal for a relaxed and serene holiday and can easily be reached from Pounda or Parikia by boat. The ancient name of Antiparos was Oliaros. A major Neolithic settlement has been unearthed at the neighbouring islet of Saliagos and it is considered to be the oldest in Cyclades.
This is the island where Greek tradition and western influence come to a harmonious marriage. Ermoupoli (meaning “the city of Hermes”) is the island’s capital town and has been the first important trade and industrial centre of the country in the 19th century. Evidence of this glorious past can be seen on public buildings (the City Hall, the Customs Office, “Apollo” theatre), on the neoclassical houses and at the beautiful squares.
Ios has made a name for itself as the party capital of the Cyclades, and rightly so. What appears to be a quaint island, with pristine beaches and white houses perched on steep hills takes on a life of its own in summer. After dark, the streets fill with people, and the town starts to celebrate. The island has something of a reputation for not being a place for the faint hearted, or those wanting rest and sleep. It’s somewhat calmer in out of the summer months, it still provides those looking for sandy beaches and fun times in the cooler months.
Milos is found in the south west of the Cyclades Islands and is often overlooked by tourists, mainly because of its tucked away location. There is much to offer the modern tourist including pleasant views, archaeological sites and some of the most colourful scenery in the Cyclades. The dramatic coastline, with its oddly shaped rocks, wonderful beaches and places of interest make it a worthwhile place to visit.
Sifnos is tucked in between the more visited islands of Milos and Paros in the Cyclades Islands, and on first appearance at the port, there seems little to offer tourists, the bare, almost moonlike landscape warning visitors away. Beyond the port, the glory of the island’s true nature is experienced, with its surprisingly lush interior, olive groves and whitewashed towns. Away from the crowds and the trappings of mass tourism, the wonders of the real Cyclades are there to be enjoyed.
Ideal for a relaxed holiday, Serifos is a typical Cycladic island with white villages, quiet harbours, golden beaches, bare hills and beautiful landscapes. The mild tourism growth has not affected the island’s nature and traditional features.
Shining under the Aegean sun, Folegandros was named after the son of king Minos. This off-the-beaten-path destination captivates the visitors with the untouched beauty of its beaches, the luminous blue of its waters, and the unadulterated style of its architecture.
Also called “Thermia” on account of its thermal springs, Kythnos is very close to Attica; still, it is one of the less visited islands of the Cyclades.
It is the northernmost island of the group with a great naval tradition and no landscape like the postcards from the Cyclades: apart from the sandy beaches, there are rocky coastlines, mountain ranges alternating with fertile plains, lush vegetation and abundantly flowing streams. Andros is the most northern and second largest of the Cyclades Islands, just a short trip from Athens, and a mere 10 kilometres from Evia, a lush haven away from the touring masses, green, mountainous and often overlooked by tourists.
