Cyclades Islands

Guide to the Greek Islands

The Cyclades is the most famous group of Greek Islands, primarily because it includes the famous islands destinations of Mykonos & Santorini (Thira). The Cyclades are named after the Greek word “Cyclos” which means “circle” because they occupy a somewhat “round” area in the middle of the Aegean Sea. They can be accessed by ferry boat or catamaran speedboat from the port of Pireaus and the port of Rafina, which are both located in Metropolitan Athens.

The beauty of the Cyclades is not limited to the nightlife and popular beaches of Mykonos and the magnificent sunset views off the cliffs of Santorini. The rest, less well known of the Cyclades Islands offer many options to enjoy an authentic Greek vacation.
