  • 1. Mykonos
    Mykonos, Cyclades

    Take the ferry from Athens to Mykonos and enjoy the lavish shopping mixed with fun nightlife that Mykonos has to offer. Make sure you stay at Paradise Beach camping and apartments- we got a fantastic deal on a gorgeous apartment with a balcony and breathtaking view! The beach parties are not to be missed- There is also a club there called Cavo Paradiso that is apparently outstanding- we never went there because it was 25 euro, but perhaps it may have been worth the hefty price??

  • 2. Ios
    Ios, Cyclades

    ios is a partier's paradise! Drinking all night and sleeping on the beach all day! There are fun beach sports you can pay for but it is not essential to enjoying the beach. There is a bus to the beach if you stay in town or you can take the 10 minute walk down a litle pathway for some exercise- it is a bi steep, but we wnjoyed the walk- and it saved us 2 euro 20 cents a day because we did not bus! haha- Make sure to befriend some of the workers at the clubs and bars, they are great people, and enjoy the crepes at Delicious or Porky's in the town next to all the bars...banana nutella..yum..

  • 3. Santorini
    Santorini, Cyclades

    Santorini, Greece is a wonderful destination that is too beautiful to be true! See the red beach and camp out there for a couple hours before heading into the town of Fira for a bit of Shopping and a nice meal. OR hire an ATV- or even a car if you so choose- and drive around the island seeing the black beach too and also Fira. If time allows, take the donkey ride for another memorable adventure! Do not forget to watch the stunning sunset in Ia- it will be the most memorable sunset oyu will experience with all the beautiful fishing boats and calm waters surrounding- not to be missed!
