WHERE TO STAY? FIND THE BEST LOCATIONS
Kea is a place intertwined with a laid-back attitude; many travelers visit the island for a short period because of its location near Athens, tasty food, and peaceful atmosphere.
For that reason, types of accommodation such as all-inclusive opulent resorts and luxury hotels are absent from Kea. However, the island is mainly villa-oriented, with several such lodgings at its disposal. Not only villas but also suites are available for visitors who hanker for a more deluxe sojourn experience.
Aside from high-end premises, the island offers lovely tourist establishments suitable for all budgets. These include traditional houses, hotels, apartments, rooms, and even camping facilities.
Most accommodations are situated in seafront locations, such as Korissia, Vourkari, and Otzias, to allow visitors to approach the sea directly or drive along the coastline to explore more beaches conveniently.
However, some of the most appealing lodgings lie around Ioulida, Kea’s capital, in the central part of the island. If renting a car is not an option, visitors can use the local bus to move around. Itineraries and destinations in terms of beaches and settlements are limited, though.
The seafront settlement of Korissia is the area that hosts the port of Kea.
It constitutes a popular location to stay in Kea because it’s close to the sea and features several establishments.
Guests can select from a variety of accommodation options depending on their budget since hotels, suites, traditional houses, and rooms are all available.

The quaint Ioulida comprises the capital of Kea. The village is perched on a higher altitude in the central part of the island, in contrast with most settlements, which are built along the coastline.
