With every beach, every rock, every building narrating its own story, the most fashionable destination enchants not only with its legendary parties and vibrant night scene but also its unique energy and unbeatable Cycladic charm.
The Parian traditional villages, particularly Naoussa, Parikia and Lefkes, are perfect samples of Cycladic architecture, with whitewashed sugar houses, paved streets and blue-domed churches. The beaches are famous for the exotic water and the golden sand. Golden Beach and New Golden Beach, are particularly popular for windsurfing. A nice day trip from the island is the small island of Antiparos, with the crystal beaches and the relaxing atmosphere.
Naxos is the largest island of Cyclades and it is located in the center of this complex, between Paros and Mykonos. According to mythology, this was the nuptial isle of the god Dionysus, god of wine. This is why there is a sanctuary dedicated to Dionysus in the inland of Naxos island. Ideal for families and romantic couples, Plaka, Agios Prokopios, Orkos and Mikri Vigla are among the most beautiful beaches on the island, while the entire western coastline is ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing due to the strong winds that blow there in the afternoon. A drive to the inland will bring you to picturesque villages and interesting sightseeing.
The Island of Polyaigos is the largest uninhabited island of the Aegean Sea. It is one of the most beautiful destinations for lovers of sailing with numerous pristine beaches with emerald waters. The Lighthouse of Polyaigos lies on Cape Maskoula on the east side of the island. The remnants of the Church of Virgin Mary are located on the northwest side of Polyaigos. Today, the island is uninhabited and it has been declared as an area of outstanding beauty and an important natural place.
Known as the "Island of Colors" thanks to its jewel-colored waters and building painted in vivid primary tones, the horseshoe-shaped island of Milos floats serenely in the Aegean Sea. It was here that the world-famous Venus de Milo statue was discovered. Though she now holds court at the Louvre, Milos has other beauties to admire. There are dozens of beaches, all different colors and all different combinations of sand, stone and shell. Explore the ancient theater, catacombs and windmills in Tripiti village, then cap off your day with a cinematic sunset.
In the morning we will cruise back from Milos to Athens and end our unforgettable journey of the Cyclades!
