This Spring was one of the hardest we've been through, as travel restrictions have affected the daily lives of all of us. So now, that the travel restrictions towards Greek islands have been lifted, we are ready for our first safe summer getaway. Here are some ideas for the best short getaways.

Kythnos, the island with 99 beaches 
Just one hour and a half away from the ports of Athens, Kythnos is the island of simplicity and hospitality. Kythnos is also known as the island with the 99 beaches; the most famous of them being Kolona where a strip of sand separates the sea in the middle. However, apart from the picturesque coves with the crystal clear waters, the visitor will be enchanted by the town of Kythnos with the intense Cycladic color, but also the traditional settlement of Dryopida with the tiled houses.

Serifos the authentic Cycladic island
With a trip duration of only two hours from Piraeus you can taste the wild beauty of Serifos. For sea lovers, Serifos offers an impressive variety of beaches. Thin pebbles, mild sandy beaches and rocky shores coexist on the island with small and large bays. For adventure lovers, some are accessible by picturesque paths and some by sea. While for those who just want to relax and enjoy their food and drink overlooking the sea or the beautiful Cycladic houses, the options will definitely not disappoint.

Andros, the "most beautiful in the world"
Just two hours away from Athens is Andros, the island which according to Andreas Empirikos is the most beautiful island in the world. The characterization of the greek poet is not accidental. In Andros, the second largest island of the Cyclades, the visitor can find everything. High mountains, ravines, rivers, waterfalls, extremely rich flora and fauna and of course beautiful beaches and traditional settlements. A weekend alone is not enough to catch a glimpse of the sights of Andros, but it will feel like you have been away from the city for weeks.
