The most famous, and quite possibly most photographed islands in the Aegean Sea, the Cyclades are known for their whitewashed hillside houses soaring high above an azure bay or the wine-tinged sea. Here the architecture is cubist and mixed with bright blue domes, heritage windmills and white churches. The romance of the area has not been lost on travel lovers, who frequently make these islands a wedding or honeymoon destination. Each rocky gem has its own unique flavours and feel, lending itself to Island-hopping — one of the area’s most popular past times. Whether you’re catching a vibrant Caldera sunset on Santorini or hiking to a hidden chapel on a hillside on Tinos, there’s a reason this region has inspired so many legends, and why we all just love Greece.
