Little Cyclades

There are actually about a dozen of these “baby” Cyclades, but only four are inhabited: Donoússa, Páno Koufoníssi, Skhinoússa, and Irakliá. These islands offer a glimpse at the few remaining remote Greek islands, where the sparkling white beaches are pristine, with excellent opportunities for swimming and paddle boarding. Dotted with traditional tavernas, the local cuisine is exquisite, offering the best of the Mediterranean!

Famous for their exotic and untouched white beaches, the island is perfect for exploring and topping up your tan! For those a little more adventurous, the western coastline is ideal for wind and kite surfing!

The most well known of the Greek Islands, Mykonos boasts a host of attractions. From idyllic beaches and beautiful architecture to exhilarating nightlife and designer boutiques, Mykonos has been a must see island for decades and it is easy to see why! Just a short hop away is the incredible island of Dilos where you can admire one of the most extensive and important sites of Greek antiquity in existence.

Naousa

This beautiful fishing village is located in the northern part of Paros, offering picturesque surroundings packed with traditional character and charm. The white washed houses, ancient churches and labyrinth-like stone paved streets are set like an amphitheatre around the port, with friendly Tavernas and Ouzeries offering a warm Greek welcome! Naousa is also home to the oldest local winery, make sure you visit for a tasting!
