Deciding Which Cyclades Islands to Visit in Greece


If you are looking for some of the scenic views in the world, then you need to take a trip to the Greek Cyclades Islands. If you could see what it looks like from above, then you would be mesmerized by the turquoise waters with bits of earth scattered into a natural mosaic presented by the universe itself. 

Nobody can visit a Greek island without considering Greek mythology. In terms of the Cyclades, it is said that the God of the oceans expressed his anger towards the people of Cyclades that he transformed all of them into mere islands. 

The Cyclades mean ‘the sacred islands’ – and we assure you that the place is mystical enough to leave anybody in awe. The islands are a great place to visit from the beginning of the year to the later summer months. Once September hits and winter is just around the corner, life does begin to slow down in this part of the world. 

If you are planning a trip to the Greek Cyclades, then we suggest the month of May for your trip. Since it would be impossible to discover each area of the Cyclades, here are a few islands that you can visit during your trip: 

1. Koufonisia

The islands of Koufonisia are rather large, with an upper area and a lower area to discover by travelers. If you are a fan of secluded spaces that are peaceful yet not abandoned, then the Koufonisia islands can be a great place to enjoy the scenic views of Greece. Although you may find other travelers here as well, the island continues to maintain an authentic image with the quietest of beaches and natural sea caves that are a treat to discover. If you are a fan of hiking, then the Koufonisia island can provide for great entertainment. 

2. Anafi

The only reason why the beautiful island of Anafi has not been damaged by tourism yet is due to its location. Being at the far end of the Cyclades, Anafi remains rather secluded and remains untouched by the destruction of mass tourism. If you are looking to enjoy the turquoise waters with a rather magnificent scenic view, then Anafi is a great choice for your travel to the Cyclades. 

3. Kimolos

If you are looking for some of the most unique beaches in the world, then the Kimolos island should be a top destination on your list. This small island provides some of the best scenic landscapes to discover for travelers, including the stone mushroom. Not only does the island provide Greece with a wide variety of minerals, but it also has clear sand and beaches with impressive pebbles to enjoy. 

4. Donousa

If you truly want a foreign experience in the Cyclades, then look no further than the northernmost island of Donousa. While you would be able to enjoy some secluded beaches that give you privacy, you can also take a trip to traditional restaurants to enjoy authentic Greek cuisine. More than anything, the island of Donousa is extremely popular for its scenic emerald-green waters.
