Naxos, at the mercy of winter

The Greek islands are known for their moderate climate but during the last 3 years they have been experiencing some really cold winters. Snow has been falling on Naxos like never before, reaching its shores and taking the locals completely by surprise.

Luckily, it doesn’t last for too long. In only a few days, the sun is up, shinning in all it glory, restoring the climate to its usual state. Still, the northern winds are blowing, smashing the waves onto the sharp rocks of Grotta of Naxos Town, a sight much appreciated by all nature lovers.

This photo was taken yesterday (January 20th) and our photographer enjoyed not just the view but also the thunderous sound of the crashing waves.

Although I have been visiting the Cyclades islands for years, my first visit to Milos took me completely by surprise. Why? Because everybody talked about Mykonos, Santorini, Paros and Koufonissia but no one discussed about Milos.

It was a friend who convinced me to go there, claiming that I would find the best beaches in Greece. And he was so right! Continue reading Visiting breathtaking Milos
