Kythnos: What to do when you get there?

The picturesque island of Kythnos is located between the islands of Kea and Serifos. The boat ride from the port of Piraeus lasts 2h40 and is less than 1h30 by speedboat. On the other hand Lavrio is only 1h30 bus or train ride from Athens.

Kythnos island is one of the most beautiful island of the western Cyclades, featuring the famous landscape of all Cyclades islands, traditional architecture, colorful alleys, archaeological sites, countless churches, scenic coves and perfectly clean sandy beaches. The 22 km long coastline offers many small creeks (125 beaches have been recorded, from which at least 60 are at least easily accessible) and many sea caves serving as home for the mediterranean monk seal

On the west part of the island a geological formation has been created between two enclosed gulfs, joining the island with the islet of Agios Loukas. This kind of formation is very rare in Greece. The largest part of the area is covered by a complex water system with water-springs and small waterfalls. This unique scenery of water and land attracts all nature lovers.

The island has two villages, Kythnos (the capital) and Dryopida; every village has its seaport: The capital has Loutra, and Dryopida has Mericha. There are also the tourist settlements of Panagia Kanala, Agios Dimitrios, Flampouria and Episkopi.

In the island you will love going hiking and swimming after, or taking scubad diving courses.
