General information

Orkos Beach Kea: Orkos is a large beach on the northeastern coast of Kea. There are no eating establishments in the area; however, for that reason, the beach is rarely preferred by tourists. Therefore, it is possible to spend most of the day alone on this peaceful beach. During the weekends and in August, the island tends to get more populated, and you may encounter a few people may on the beach. Orkos also boasts a small number of houses that function as summer residences. Those are located over the beach itself and along the road to it.

Orkos is very picturesque and counts on some trees providing shade from the sun, as well as a few straw umbrellas. Its crystalline blue waters are ideal for swimming and snorkeling, which allows you to appreciate the beauty found under the sea. Bringing a mask and a snorkel except for the basic beach gear is totally worth it. Obviously, this level of seclusion requires taking enough supplies of food and fresh water since there are no taverns or restaurants available.

Regarding the road to Orkos, it is advisable to travel by car or motorcycle. In the case of going two people on the same motorcycle, take into account that some points of the road will be a little steep during your return. Therefore, it would be ideal to have one motorcycle per person.

Fortunately, in spite of becoming a popular island, visited by many tourists on weekends and during the high season, Kea still counts on quiet places where you can enjoy its beautiful nature in privacy. When planning ahead regarding transportation and supplies, Orkos is the perfect place.
