Kythnos Guide

Located in the western Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Kythnos lies between the islands of Kea and Serifos and is around 100 km from the port of Piraeus. The small island, with a land area of around 100 sq. km and a coastline of 100 km, has about 100 beaches although many of them are inaccessible by road. The main villages on the island are called Messaria or Kythnos (known as Chora to the locals) and Dryopis or Dryopida (known as Chorio to the locals). Both villages are characterised by steep, winding streets, often stepped, which are often too narrow for cars. The architectural styles of both villages are slightly different from each. Both are pretty but Chora's houses are mainly flat-roofed, typical of the Cyclades, while Chorio's houses tend to have sloping roofs. An interesting attraction in Chora is its large Greek Orthodox Church.

The island can be reached by ferry from Piraeus and Lavrio. The crossing from Piraeus takes around 3 hours by conventional ferry and 1 hour by high speed ferry. The crossing from Lavrio takes roughly 2 hours. Kythnos is also connected by ferry to the islands of Serifos, Sifnos, Milos, Santorini, Sikinos, Folegandros and Kea.

Kea Guide

The Greek island of Kea is one of the Cyclades group of islands although it is interesting in that the architecture of its buildings or its landscape has little similarities to the other islands of the Cyclades. The island is also called Tzia, and lies to the south of Attica and is opposite the town of Lavrion on the Greek mainland. Due to Kea's proximity to Athens it is popular with many Athenians who visit the island for weekend breaks. The island's port is in the pretty little town of Korissia which is also one of the island's most popular visitor attractions. The town is characterised with its white washed houses, complete with colourful roofs, its enamel factory, its winding cobbled streets and lovely churches.

The island is also popular with scuba divers who love the island's crystal clear waters and rich marine life and amazing wall dives. A popular dive site is to the wreck of the steamship Patris which sank in 1868. Also located around 1.5 miles offshore is the HMS Britannic, the sister ship of HMS Titanic, and is popular with Tec Divers as the wreck lies at a depth of around 120 meters.
