Folegandros is a beautiful hide-away for the Greeks who want to stay clear of the large volume of tourist visiting the other Islands.

Naxos is the largest Greek island in Cyclades. The capital town, Naxos Chora has a lively environment and is often a personal favorite for some. The town is full of shops, tavernas (small restaurant or cafes) and archeological museums. Naxos has a sacred destination which is called the “Portara” an entrance to a temple that is unfinished and faces directly toward Delos, Apollo’s birthplace. Naxos is not a very attractive greek town but it does have awesome beaches and amazing villages.
Mykonos isn’t much of a island to see. However, Mykonos has the best beaches in Greece. You can partake in visiting the bars, drinking the cocktails and eating the food. However, it can be very an expensive holiday experience on the Island of Mykonos.
You can visit the Island of Ios to see the uniqueness of the people and the environment. The mainland is very beautiful with golden sandy beaches, B&B (Bread & Breakfast) and hotels that you can explore. In the 1990’s and 2000’s the Island of Ios had a poor reputation because it was consider a party Island and was known to cater to the younger crowds. Even Though, the the Island had a tarnished reputation it still is a lovely place to stay and visit.
