  3. Great beaches! And that blue, crystal clear water you find in the Greek Islands!
  4. The history and culture of Syros is fascinating!
  5. Great restaurants and local specialty dishes.
  6. Syros is affordable– very affordable actually. Even luxury hotels are a fraction of the cost of its glitzy neighbors.
  7. Friendly locals.
  8. It’s clean and safe.
