What are the Cyclades

The Cyclades or the Cyclades Islands are an archipelago of Greek islands in the southern Aegean Sea. The name comes from the Greek word “kyklos” which means a circle. It is called so because the Cyclades form a circle around the island of Delos, which was considered sacred in antiquity. We have prepared for you the Travel Guide of Cyclades Islands.

The Cyclades includes over 220 islands, the main ones being Amorgos, Anafi, Andros, Antiparos, Delos, Ios, Kea, Kimolos, Kythnos, Milos, Mykonos, Naxos, Paros, Folegandros, Serifos, Sifnos, Sikinos, Syros, Tinos and Santorini. There are also many smaller islands, including Donousa, Irakleia, Koufonisi, Makronisos, Rinya, and Schinusa. Most of the smaller islands are uninhabited.

How to get to the Cyclades Islands

Travelling to the Cyclades by plane

The airports of Santorini and Mykonos serve international charter flights and local flights. The airports of Naxos, Paros, Milos, and Syros only accept local flights. So, most likely, it will be more convenient for you to fly to Athens International Airport and then fly to the island or take a ferry.

We suggest you use JETRADAR which is one of the largest online search engines for flights all over the world. This service helps to compare airfares from hundreds of airlines and dozens of travel agencies and systems and book the cheapest tickets available.

Travelling to the Cyclades by ferry

Ferries to most of the Cyclades islands leave from the main port of Athens – Piraeus. You can check the ferryboat schedule and buy your tickets here

The islands of Andros, Tinos, Mykonos, Paros, and Naxos can also be reached from the port of Rafina.

Kea Island can only be reached from the port of Lavrio.

Travelling to the Cyclades by private helicopter

Once you arrive in Athens we can pick you up directly from the arrival gate and take you to the helipad. This way you can reach your destination in the fastest possible way and have more time to enjoy your vacation. Especially helicopters have the ability to fly in high wind conditions, and even in cases where transfer by sea would be impossible. Also, the helicopter can take you to destinations that have no airports and where ferryboats have infrequent itineraries.
