Things to do

Temple of Athena on Kea:

The Temple of Athena dates back to the late 6th century BC. The Archaeological Museum of Kea houses sections of the Temple of Athena, as well as other parts of the ancient city. The museum is open from 8am-3pm daily. Full-price tickets are three euro, while reduced-rate tickets are two euro.

Otzias Beach:

Visit Otzias Beach, located on the northernmost part of Kea. This beach is easy to access by car, at just a 15-minute drive away from the harbour. Stands to buy food and drinks are available, as is a small children's playground.

Panagia Kastriani Monastery:

Located on the northern side of Kea, the Panagia Kastriani Monastery was built around 1700 AD. Tradition states that shepherds saw a light at the top of Kastri, then ascended to the top. Upon digging they found an icon of the Virgin Mary, and decided to build a monastery on that very spot.

Keadivers Dive Center:

Keadivers Dive Center is located in the harbour town of Vourkari, on the northwestern corner of Kea. Keadivers leads dives for both beginning and advanced divers to the island's underwater treasures. Among these are the Patris sunken ship of 1868, the HMHS Britannic (sister ship of the Titanic).

Lion of Kea:

Visit the mysterious stone Lion of Kea. This archaic object is one of the most popular tourist sites on the island. The legend follows that the Lion was sent to the island to ravage the beautiful water nymphs that once lived on Kea.

Athens:

Explore Athens during a Greek holiday. The bustling metropolis of three million will surely be a change of pace. Explore the Neoclassical and Greco-Roman architecture. Be sure to visit the Parthenon and the recently opened and incredibly popular New Acropolis Museum.

Weather on Kea

Kea's weather is consistent with the Mediterranean climate. Summers are hot, but not humid, and temperatures reach the mid-30s. Winters are rainy but not too cold, and only dip down to the mid-10s. A group of winds, called the Ethesians (or Meltemi in Turkish) blow all summer long. In the late afternoon and early evening, these winds can disrupt the western edge of Kea, as well as sailors at sea. Signs are posted along Kea's western beaches.

Travel to Kea

Kea is most easily reached by way of the Greek ferry system. Travellers should fly into Athens Airport (ATH) and transfer to the Ferry system at the main ferry harbour. Both car-carrying and passenger ferries arrive in Korissia on the island of Kea regularly. These ferries are more frequent during the high tourist season. From Korissia, the Epar. Od. Limaniou Korissias-Ormou Kampiou Road leads eastward across the island through Milopotamos, Ioulis, Kastanies, and Astras.

                                                              Charming Greek house with wonderful views

                                                              We got on very well in the house with three patios. Each with wonderful views. The charming Greek house was fully equiped. We specially appreciated that there was a coffe maker. The owners were very thoughtful and had seen to it that there was breakfast in the fridge. They had even brought up a few bottles of water. The house is situated high in the charming village of Korissia. Very many stairs lead up to the house but the view is worth the effort. We walked a lot during the week. Kea offers excellent hiking trails. There are several nice tavernas with very good food. We already longing back to the little house on Kea! Recommended!

                                                              Dream home with stupendous views

                                                              The property is amazing. We had breakfast in a different terrace every morning and the first 2 days we didn't leave the house at all we were so enchanted. Evening drinks by the pool became a ritual. The house is tastefully decorated, super well equipped, cool, and vey comfortable. The area and nearby beaches are beautiful. It really was a dream holiday. 5 stars for everything!
