Best time to visit

The Cyclades can be visited all year round. The islands are warm and nice from April to November, when the beaches are at their best, but if you want to avoid the many tourists, it's better to go in the winter, when it's a bit cooler.

Special conditions

If you're looking for peace and quiet, then stay away Skiathos. The island is infested with young people in a party mood during the high season, and there's never a quiet moment.
