Conde Nast Traveler, the world's premier travel magazine, paid a special tribute to four small Cycladic islands in a recent publication. In an article of the February issue entitled Pure Bliss, 4 Perfect Little Isles in Greece, the tribute focuses on the complex of the Small Cyclades, particularly the four tiny islands of Koufonisia, Donoussa, Schinoussa and Iraklia. According to the travel writer, these islands, which are presented with many photos, are getting more and more appreciated for their virgin nature and the relaxing atmosphere.
The writer himself had the opportunity to travel and stay for a long time in the Small Cyclades, and especially in Iraklia where the locals rumor a legend that Cyclops Polyphemus, who was blinded by Ulysses, used to live in a cave on that island. Furthermore, the writer recalls his amazement for the beaches of Finikas and Pori in Koufonisia, whereas he chooses Iraklia as the ideal destination to withdraw during summer vacations.
