Which islands in Cyclades? Ferry schedules

We will be in the Cyclades for about 3 weeks in May. We want to visit islands that are more scenic, unspoiled, and traditional and have good beaches. We aren't interested in fancy resorts, night life or shopping. We are in our 70's, active, love to walk. We have been to Santorini and Crete - loved them both. On this trip we start in Mykonos for 4 days and haven't decided which islands from there. Milos, Sikinos and Amorgos look interesting. Also is there a good internet source of info on the ferries?

A good internet source for ferry schedules:


Aside from the islands you mention do read up on Kythnos. It is one of my favourites for walking and it certainly isn't full of fancy resorts. I am sure you will enjoy Amorgos !

Naxos, Paros, Antiparos, Ios, Folegandros the list goes on! Sikinos may be very quiet that early though.

If you like traditional look at Tinos. I found the island to be almost magical, with its intense religious aura (it's home to one of the most revered icons in Greece), its multitude of dovecots and its unspoiled villages like Pyrgos and Volax. Plus, it's only a half hour or so from Mykonos.

And yes, Naxos and Paros are also great choices.

Another vote for Tinos, it's beautiful.

i agree that Sikinos will be very (too?) quiet in May. It is a good time to visit Paros and Sifnos. Sifnos is accessible directly from Paros normally on a Sunday and Tuesday. You can go on from Sifnos to Milos on frequent ferries, including the Sunday and Tuesday ones.
