The most likely time for someone to visit a Greek Island is during summer when the weather is hot and you spend most of the time on a beach. Especially in the Cyclades one might feel that the land is barren and will find the scenery dull and full of rocks and dried weeds. But in spring things are quite different. Green yellow and purple are the colors that cover the hillsides and reach the beaches. Smells from thyme, oregano and wild flowers are overwhelming. So whenever I get the chance I love to visit an island during spring to enjoy the colors and smells.
