The cycladic island attracts couples and luxury travellers from all around the world. Although Santorini is a popular wedding destination and is rather an expensive island when it comes to accommodation and food, there are still options for the budget travellers. Even if you’re stopping in Santorini for a day only, it will be worth experiencing the iconic sunset and the view of Caldera cliffs. The beauty of Santorini is beyond description.

Crystal clear waters, moonscape and picturesque seaside villages- welcome to Milos. The famous cliffs of Sarakiniko beach can easily fit in the list of the most spectacular natural wonders in Europe. Milos is a very relaxed island, surrounded with dramatic coastline and endless coves.

Perfect getaway for party and pub-crawl lovers. Mykonos is a trending Greek island and it attracts travellers with its picturesque white and blue streets, boho-luxe vibe and vibrant nightlife. There are numerous world-class bars and restaurants around the island. Some of them have the sea at their doorsteps as located in the dreamy place called Little Venice.

White-washed houses, the most stunning beaches and insanely turquoise water- this is Ios. The island is very small, and not as popular as others which makes Ios a perfect Greek getaway. Although Ios appears to be less popular than other cycladic islands, it has a great social hub and nightlife. The luxury hotels are popping around the island serving panoramic views of the Aegean Sea.

Paros is one of the biggest Cycladic islands, located right next to its sister island-Naxos. It offers the same charming and dreamy narrow streets freckled with colorful flowers and little cafes. Paros is also home to virgin beaches and dreamy towns inviting the travellers with lively nightlife and delicious food.
