❤ Our recommendations:
• Porto Klaras
Staying in Loutra is one of the most popular options on the island. This village is located in the Northeast part of the island, 12 km away from the port and 5 km away from Chora.
The village was one of the first to develop touristically due to its thermal springs. There is an indoor spring that remains temporarily closed and an outdoor spring on the beach that is accessible to the public.
The settlement of Loutra has a sandy beach, a popular marina where sailing boats and yachts anchor, and some delicious fish taverns and hotels. Also, the picturesque beach of Agia Irini is less than 2 km away.
❤ Our recommendations:
• Chora Kythnos Suites
Chora is the Capital of Kythnos and the centre of life on the island. It is located on the mainland, 7 kilometers away from the port.
It has beautiful architecture with whitewashed houses and small paved alleys.
There are many restaurants, local taverns, and bars. Hotels in Chora are located within the old quarter or are new structures that are built in the surrounding area.
❤ Our recommendations:
Merichas is the port of Kythnos. It is a quaint town built amphitheatrically with many shops, hotels, and restaurants. There is a beach and a marina with boats that you can rent and discover the surrounding beaches. Also, boat tours to Kolona start from this point. The beaches of Martinakia, Episkopi, and Apokrousi are also very close.
Generally, it is a convenient place to stay if you are traveling without a car in Kythnos since you can take the bus and remain close to popular attractions.
KYTHNOS, A REMOTE CYCLADIC ISLAND
Kythnos is a small island that belongs to the Cyclades. It is located south of Kea and north of Serifos and is part of the Western Cyclades.
The ferry ride from Athens is 1 hour and 40 minutes from Lavrion port.
Its proximity to the Greek Capital has made Kythnos an ideal weekend getaway for the Athenians, especially during Spring and the shoulder seasons (May-June and September). July and August are the busiest months on the island.
Despite its short distance to Athens, Kythnos has only started developing touristically in recent years and has maintained an authentic character. Chora and Driopida are two villages with lovely traditional architecture, stone-built houses, and white paved alleys. The island counts 99 beaches with many of them remaining completely unspoiled. Ιts most famous beach and one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece is Kolona, a thin strip of land separating two beaches.
Many hotels are located in the villages of Merichas, Chora, Loutra, and Kanala. You will also find hotels in numerous other places since they are scattered in different locations on the island. The majority of them are small, family-run units, rooms-to-let, and apartments. They are either new or recently renovated structures and consist of well-equipped rooms, a small kitchenette, and a terrasse offering a beautiful sea view. If you are looking for a lavish stay, you will find a few luxury options which are mainly small suites and villas. Also, due to the big number of beaches, you will find many hotels on the beach or within a short walking distance. If you visit Kythnos without a car, then book your hotel in Merichas, Loutra, or Chora in order to move around by bus.
Due to the limited number of hotels, they sell out fast and early booking is recommended if you travel during June-August. Booking your hotel 4 months in advance is strongly recommended.
