Kythira Avlemonas

General information

Avlemonas Village Kythira: Avlemonas is a traditional fishing settlement located 19 km north east of Chora, the capital of Kythira. Built in Cycladic style, Avlemonas is one of the island's most beautiful villages known for the numerous miniscule stunning gulfs and lush vegetation that create an astounding natural backdrop. The hiking tours and delighful walks across the enchanting landscape are a treat for every visitor.

The whitewashed houses with the blue windows and the flowered gardens constitute one of the main attractions of the village. The picturesque port of Avlemonas serves as a shelter for fishing boats and caiques. When the weather is clear, you can also visit the neighbour island of Antikythira.

The most important historical site of Avlemonas is Kastelo, a tiny 16th century Venetian castle built at the entrance of the port. It was used as a watchtower during the Venetian period and today it is the main tourist attraction, idyllic for long moonlit walks, sparking romanticism of a bygone era.

The beach, right next to the small port dominating the settlement of Avlemonas is ideal for swimming. The sea here is sparkling and clear with soft sand and plenty of accommodation facilities. It is connected to Paleochori, the largest beach of Kythira.

    Small and Cute
    Avlemonas is a very small village, with no more that 80 permanent residents. It takes 15 minutes to walk around it, but I found it perfect for staying there and having it as a starting point - two long nice beaches next to it, proximity of other great beaches, nice coast, vie, lighthouse, nice sunset, moonlight, close to Diakofti, nice food and last, but not least, extremely quiet and silent! If you want such place as your starting point, Avlemonas is for you.
