General information

Kolona Beach Kythnos: The beach of Kolona is basically a narrow strip of land that connects Kythnos to the islet of Agios Loukas. However, it has a particular charm, partly due to its fine, golden sand and the sea lapping at both of its sides.

In addition, the beach is surrounded by gentle, quite infertile slopes. Kolona beach is situated approximately 3 km to the west of Chora village and can be reached by taxi boat from Merihas, the main port of Kythnos. It can also be reached on foot, which takes a couple of hours from the port.

This trip is advised only if you like hiking, otherwise this option is not recommended. If you want to drive there, have in mind that the road is pretty rough and you will probably need a jeep to go. If you own a private boat, it will be necessary to land directly on the sand, as there is no quay. Among the few facilities of Kolona beach, we can mention a tavern, which opens in the daytime.

On the other hand, although it does not have any umbrellas, there are two large trees providing shade. Kolona is reputed as one of the most beautiful beaches on Kythnos and has a great romantic vibe. It is one of the locations that cannot be missed when visiting Kythnos island.

    Soft sand and few trees for shade
    Probably the most beautiful beach in Kythnos is Kolona. A long hike from Chora or a short motorbike ride, you choose the way. We had rented a bike for a couple of days to see the island and we spent both days in Kolona. A very lovely beach with few trees for shade and a tavern at one side. Soft sand, clean water and maybe a bit more yachts than expected. From the hill above Kolona, it looks like the sea is divided in two parts by a narrow strip of sand.
