ACTIVITY: Visit the island of Paros in the heart of the Cyclades, known for its hidden beaches, quaint villages and bountiful plant life. The countryside is filled with vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees while in the spring the scenery is dotted with bursts of colour from blooming flowers. Explore Livadhi, the small town to the east easily accessed from the channel between Paros and Naxos. Livadhi is a great place to sit back at a tavernas, enjoy the view and savour some yummy Greek food. History buffs tend to flock to the North side of Paros to Naousa to see the town’s historic port and Venetian ruins.

ACTIVITY: Visit the Antíparos and explore ancient sites like the Cave of Antíparos, used as a place of worship for the goddess Artemis. Hop on one of the hourly buses to the cave, travel 100m down using the staircase and take in the view of the stalagmites and stalactites. The capital is built around a 15th century Ventian castle and is also worth exploring. Wander the alleyways past the whitewashed houses, take some pictures of the homes with their blossoming pink and purple bougainvillea or visit the main square. Like all of the islands in the Cyclades, Antíparos also has lovely beaches along the coast perfect for diving or kayaking.

ACTIVITY: Stop at Ios island and get up close to the hillside clusters of blue-roofed white buildings, explore an ampitheatre and stand on the golden beaches. Look out at the sapphire sea while soaking in the Greek island ambiance. Take a scenic 25 minute walk up the hill to the old town of Charos. If there’s time visit the tomb of the famous poet Homer or head the famous Manganari beach on the south side of the island to enjoy the sun and clear water.

ACTIVITY: Walk around the island of Sifnos past snowy white houses, little churches with blue domes on green hills that lead to sandy beaches. Hike along the walking trails with spectacular views of olive groves and wild juniper. The island hosts a number of small, locally-owned and operated ceramic workshops, some of which are open to the public. Stop in and pick up a unique, authentic keepsake to take home.

ACTIVITY: Explore one of the must see islands in the Cyclades, Folegandros, and the beautiful city of Hora. The capital which is located up in the hills, boasts a traffic-free main street with plenty of green spaces to explore. Spend some time hiking the trails, taking photos of the classic whitewashed houses decorated with colourful bougainvillea or exploring under the waves while snorkeling.
