Cyclades travel guide

Beaches · Landmarks · Ruins
Located southeast of the Greek mainland, the Cyclades island group constitutes part of an archipelago containing over 2,000 islands. Quintessentially Mediterranean, the islands feature varied landscapes that include sun-drenched beaches, bare mountains, olive groves, ancient ruins, lush vineyards, and whitewashed villages. Santorini and Mykonos remain the Cyclades' main tourist attractions, luring vacationers with golden sands and lively nightlife. You can easily avoid the big crowds by settling on less-frequented Antiparos or Anafi, small islands with quiet beaches and picturesque coastal walks. If you're not married to the idea of staying in one place, use one of the bigger islands as your base and spend time touring the remote islets, which provide plenty of privacy and tranquility.

Wine Island
Known for dramatic views and romantic sunsets, the island of Santorini draws visitors with its long string of black, white, and red beaches. The largest and most significant of a small group of volcanic islands located just 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini boasts just over 15,000 permanent residents. Created by a massive volcanic eruption that likely destroyed a single large island, the archipelago still features an active volcano, which saw its last eruption in the 1950s. The easiest way to explore Santorini's craggy coastline is on foot. Start by visiting the archaeological sites on the island's southwestern side, which offer a chance to discover the area's ancient past with unobstructed views of the famed volcano.
