Amorgos ● Koufonisia ● Mykonos ● Santorini ● 18 July 2018

Every woman on this planet and a vast majority of the men want to sunbathe and get an amazing tan. Sun is beneficial for our health and psychology, but of course we need to take every necessary measure to protect ourselves. Sunscreen cream before we leave home or our hotel is exactly what we need in order to avoid get burnt until we arrive on the beach. Plus, a hat and plenty of water are sine qua non prerequisites during a hot day on the beach, especially on unorganised beaches without umbrellas. If you are careful enough, you can enjoy only the good things that the Greek sun can give to you.

The Cyclades is the best island complex to sunbathe, feel the warm sun on your face and get a tan without suffering from heatstroke. And do you know why? Because the sun is constantly shining in the Cyclades from April to October, but there is also one more useful detail: especially in July and August, in the Cycladic islands blows the north and cool wind meltemi. Thus, you can enjoy the sun without suffering from high temperatures. However, don't forget your hat and sunscreen in order to avoid burns and sunstroke!

These islands are the best among all the Cycladic islands if you want to sunbathe and get a tan. The super thing is that you can visit all of them paying the price of only one ferry ticket! How? Just book online the best Greek Island Hopping Ferry Pass of Hostelbay, go from one island to another on a budget and with great flexibility and enjoy the best sunbathing of your life on several islands!


Mykonos is worldwide famous not only for its wild nightlife but also for its fully organised beaches. Long exotic bays with golden sand and emerald waters have every facility you may need, beach restaurants, bars and clubs, water sports facilities, diving centres and top services. Everything you need to spend a whole day on the beach!


Santorini has a characteristic you can find only there. Its beaches have volcanic black sand. That makes them look wild, lunar and much different than the other Greek islands, but that doesn't mean they are not astonishing. Their landscape is something you haven't seen in your life before! Plus, the black soil reflects the sun and gives you the greatest tan you can imagine!


Amorgos is the best island to wander around and explore the wild, dry nature surrounding the beaches. Don't stay on only one beach. Discover hidden bays, caves and imposing rocks, sunbathe by the sea and feel the sun giving you a chocolate colour while you swim, dive or stroll around.


The island complex of Koufonisia has the most exotic and impressive beaches in whole Aegean Sea. The sand is white and the sea waters totally turquoise, exactly like swimming in the Caribbean. What makes Koufonisia the best destination to sunbathe and get a tan? The beaches are unorganised without umbrellas. They have beach bars and taverns behind the coastline, where you can find every facility you need, but if you want to stay by the sea, you have to wear your hat and enjoy the sun on your face and skin!
