The Cyclad islands derive their name from the Greek word for circle – Cyclos. The term refers to the ring-like shape they form within the island archipelago of Greece. If they are a ring indeed the diamond has to be Santorini. The island, actually being the caldera of a Volcano eruption in ancient times, is as beautiful as a piece of land within the blue mediterranean sea can get. Mykonos in contrast is a lovely party island, which never seems to sleep. Both make great motives for photography and are definitely worth a visit.
