The only thing you should take into consideration is how to combine the islands in order to have vacation with variety and the optimum characteristics. With our suggestions, you can plan the perfect vacation in Cyclades on islands with extraordinary beauty.

Mykonos-Naxos-Santorini

When you start your vacation, you are in your best mood, full of energy and joy. It is the best time to visit a party island, such as Mykonos. There, you will dance and drink until the dawn, meet new people and explore what wild nightlife means. Partying all day and night long in the super cool bars in Mykonos Chora or the beach bars on one of the island's beaches by the sea, this is Mykonos.

After this experience, it is wise to go afterwards to an island, where you can relax without, however, getting bored. Naxos is the excellent option after Mykonos. You have many things to do and see, discover the traditional mainland villages of the island, taste the delicious Greek cuisine and visit significant historical sites, such as Portara on the hill above the port or the Archaeological Museum of Naxos.

Last but not least, you can feel the romanticism in your final destination, Santorini. After having spent vivid days and nights and explored interesting things, you can just find a boutique hotel on the caldera and admire the breathtaking volcanic view on an island that is a legend. Of course, Santorini is ideal if you want to learn about the history of the Neolithic civilisation on southern Aegean Sea or if you want to swim and sunbathe on impressive beaches in a lunar landscape, but remember that on this island, it is also ok to just relax, find your inner peace and enjoy its special aura.


Paros-Amorgos-Ios

If you want a cheaper island than Mykonos, you can start your island hopping in Paros, which is also a party island with young people and crazy nightlife, especially in Naousa. Paros is the meeting point of all travellers in their 20's, so it is the perfect spot to see and to be seen with the advantage of not being as expensive as Mykonos.

After Paros, Amorgos can be your next stop, an island where you can chill out, admire the endless blue and get lost in a world full of exotic beaches, white houses, chapels in the middle of nowhere and traditional taverns and cafés. Your day will be full of sun and sea, while your night will be spent in Amorgos Chora, at the squares with the cozy shops and the bars serving ouzo and rakomelo with mezedes.

If you want to complete your island hopping in Cyclades with energy and fun, after Amorgos, you can visit Ios, an island that combines both: nightlife with elegant atmosphere. Ios is the island to understand what entertainment in Greece is about, but also the island to relax on private beaches. This is why it gathers various types of travellers and guarantees to give you the variety you want.


Mykonos-Amorgos-Naxos-Santorini

An extended island hopping journey includes these 4 islands in order to have the ultimate variety in your vacation. Partying and stunning beaches in Mykonos, relaxing in a traditional atmosphere in Amorgos, tasting creative cuisine and hiking in Naxos and getting impressed by the romantic scenery of Santorini. Remember: with Greek Island Pass, you can see all these islands on a budget and feel the experience of taming the Aegean Sea and exploring various destinations that will offer you unforgettable memories.
