Nature did art creating these islands from the minimal "painted" Myconos to the moonlike beaches of Milos !!!
Because the islands are set up in a circle around Delos the islands are named Cyclades, Kyklos is the Greek word for circle.
Bare rocky islands decorated with brightly white villages high on hills above the blue sea and fringed with the terrific beaches. The Islands' attractions are worth the large number of their visitors, especially in summer.
Each island allocates its own charms. By plane or by ferry the approach is very easy and amusing.
