On a quest to find the Greek islands of your dreams?
Named from the circle they form around the sacred island of Delos, the Cyclades are the “destination of a lifetime”
When you think of the Greek islands, there are a few images that probably come immediately to your mind: the azure blue water of the Aegean Sea, the whitewashed houses stacked on top of one another like sugar cubes, the bougainvilleas, the blue domes and the best grilled fish you’ll eat in the whole world. And you’re right!

The Cyclades are best reached by boat from the port of Pireaus or Rafina and you can of course, fly to Mykonos, Santorini and other major islands and then grab a ferry to your destination.
