KYTHNOS, A TRULY MYSTIC ISLAND
Where the deep blue of the Aegean meets the bright blue sky, a volcanic island with magnificently beautiful valleys, caves and Cycladic style all over, it appears.
The picturesque ISLAND of KYTHNOS, or Thermia is located between the islands of Kea and Serifos, 52 nautical miles from the port of Piraeus (2 hours and 40 minutes by boat and less than 1 hour and 30 minutes by speedboat) or 30 miles from Lavrio (1 hour 30 min by boat).
Lavrio is very easy accesible from the Athens International Airport by train and bus.
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 homes for the monachus monachus seal.
On the west part of the island of KYTHNOS, two enclosed gulfs are formatted, between which, a geological formation has been created, 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 springs and small waterfalls.
This unique scenery of water and land attracts all nature lovers, continually winning their interest.
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.
