Amorgos
The movie "The Big Blue" and the views immortalised by director Lick Besson drew in visitors from all around the world. Start walking up to the Monastery of Hozoviotissa, the white Monastery of Virgin Mary that stands out like a glittering gem among steep cliffs. The Aegean blue stretches in the background and just below is the small port of Agia Anna. In this tiny beach of Amorgos, you will always find people sunbathing and diving off the rocks.

Anafi
Whether you are here for the view or to simply add another mountaineering destination to your list, climbing Europe's second tallest rock is a must. Kalamos is also known as the "Gibraltar of Greece" and has a height of 460 meters. Here you will find the Panagia Kalamiotissa Monastery. No matter how many photos of it you see, no matter how many filters they have, the real beauty of the Anafi landscape cannot be captured. Turn your visit into an experience, follow the example of many visitors before you and spend a night in the courtyard of the Monastery. Pack a set of clothes, water, food and a sleeping bag and follow a sunset far more impressive than the famous one in Santorini. The climb is a piece of cake, as long as you do not carry a lot of things with you, and it takes about an hour.

Patmos
The island has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and many believers flock here every year, since this is considered a site of major Christian pilgrimage. But Patmos has another side to it, one that simply loves action. Kastelli is the ancient Acropolis of Patmos and once you find yourself at its archaeological site, you will realize that you are standing on a privileged balcony to the Aegean. To the west the blue waters let the wind create beautiful ripples, while to the east you can see Lipsi, the islet of Chiliomodi and Arkioi. To the north lay Naxos and Ikaria.

Rhodes
Once you find yourself on the island of the Knights, travel to the village of Monolithos to visit its Castle. Story has it that the Knights of the Order of St.John renovated this Castle in 1476. Due to its location and its effective fortification, it is one of the four castles of Rhodes that was never conquered. The view from the top extends to Halki and Alimia, stretching far until the shores of Asia Minor. Another location to relax your gaze is the hill of Monte Smith, built above the city of Rhodes. It is named after the British admiral Sidney Smith who used the site as an observatory to oversee the movements of Napoleon's fleet in 1802. The locals visit the hill to go walking or running. Since you are here, don't miss out: explore the Palace of the Grand Master, travel to the symmetrical city of Lindos and its Acropolis, go to Faliraki for a swim at the Marine Park and to the beach of Tsambika to sink your feet in warm, golden sand.

Santorini
Every afternoon Oia is packed with visitors who want to witness the most iconic Greek scenery: The sun dives into the sea to rest, leaving behind a bouquet of purple and orange shades. Cameras flash, hands hold one another and all kinds of music sets the soundtrack. Santorini has the most famous sunset that is worth seeing even once in a lifetime. If you ask the locals, however, they will tell you where you can enjoy the same view, minus the crowds. The lighthouse in the Akrotiri area ​​is 10 meters high and it is one of the most beautiful ones you will find on any Greek island.

The Monastery of Panagia Kastriani is the patron Saint of Kea, and you will find it 12 km from the port. The view to Andros and Karystos is undoubtedly impressive and visiting the spot is one of the best things you can do once on the island.
