Perhaps the most famous group of islands in Greece is the Cyclades. The name derives from the Greek word “kyklos” which in English means circle (circular islands), hence the shape the islands form around the sacred island of Delos. According to Greek mythology, the God of the Sea, Poseidon, turned the Cyclades nymphs into islands from fury. Located in the Aegean Sea and comprised of some of the most well-known and particularly beautiful islands in Greece, the Cyclades have million of visitors every year for very obvious reasons: magnificent sandy beaches, Cycladic architecture in white and blue, traditional and authentic lifestyle, heartwarming locals and of course a cuisine that will not disappoint.
The “off the grid” Cycladic islands that deserve to be mentioned are Sikinos, Ios, Folegandros, Sifnos and Amorgos. Dip your toe in the crystal clear waters, have your stomach thank you after trying out the local cuisine and
