Cyclades

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  South Aegean  /  Cyclades
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. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Cyclades and add them to your vacation plans using our Greece day trip planner.
