Cyclades Islands

The Cyclades islands are located south west of Athens and mainland Greece and are home to probably the most iconic and well recognised islands in the country if not the world.

Famous for the quintessential blue and white sugar cube architecture as well as magnificent beaches, azure waters, rugged landscapes and ancient ruins its easy to see why the Cyclades islands are so popular.

The Capital of the Cyclades is Ermoupoli which is on Syros. The most popular islands are Santorini and Mykonos but it is possible to visit several islands in a short time due to the extensive ferry network and a high number of airports.

The largest island is Naxos and many believe the most important, perhaps in all of Greece, is Delos, which is said to be the birthplace of Apollo although it is uninhabited.
