The Cyclades are an island group in the Aegean Sea, south-east of mainland Greece. There are 220 islands in total, most of them uninhabited. The islands are peaks of a submerged mountain range; two of them, Milos and Santorini, are volcanic. They are distinguished by their unique cubic architecture, which is not found anywhere else in Greece.
These are the islands I visited this summer.**
Syros - the capital of the Cyclades
Paros - windsurfers love it
Naxos - the largest of the Cyclades
Ios - Backpacker central
Mykonos - party island for people with money
Santorini - ideal for honeymooners and lovey doveys
** OK, so I didn't set foot on each one of them, but the boat stopped close enough for me to take photos from the deck, which is almost as good. I've actually been to all of them over the years, except for Ios. Maybe next year...
