Sail through the Cyclades exploring the hidden islands so often overlooked by tourists. Forget paradise lost, it's waiting to be found on small islands like Serifos, Sifnos, Kythnos and Milos, where the blue and white buildings lean more towards authentic than aesthetic. Explore the white, lunar-like landscape of the Moon Beach, Sarakiniko, and dine on fresh seafood in the small, local tavernas, washed down with a glass of ouzo. Whether it's by boat, swimming or stand-up paddleboard, the Aegean is waiting to wrap you in its warm, salty embrace, as are the hardy locals who call these islands home.
