First of all this is an amazing community and a must Stop for someone like me who is travelling to Greece for the first time. I have already had most of my questions answered just be reading around in this forum so keep up the good work folks
I am trying to create an Itinerary to go around the Cyclades group of Islands. Since this is my first visit, Santorini is already on the list. However, since there aren't any great beaches and it seems quite touristy I am not sure if I would like to stay more then one day. Maybe two is enough?
From what I have read I seem to like Sifnos as another stop. Much calmer, less expensive, good beaches. I won't mind spending two days here.
Folegandros seems like another picturesque place to stop over.
Are there any other must visit islands or hidden gems or rare beaches around? I am also a little bound by timings on ferries since I am flying from Athens to Santorini and then trying to get back to Athens via ferry. So Only islands in same route which are not out of way would fit in. I have 6 days in hand and dont mind taking a 3-4 hr ferry to a new island every day if its worth it.
Your suggestions are welcome.
