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.

Great location, beautiful views, very comfortable, everything we wanted.

5 of 5
Great location - only a short walk from the ferry (upstairs but worth it), with fantastic views over the port. Very comfortable - nice big rooms with 3 outside options; big bed and nice fridge and kitchen; and 2 ceiling fans that kept us cool even in 30+ degree temperatures. Helpful host - we were very grateful for the help and advice we got from our hosts, especially when we had to make an emergency trip to the local medical centre.

Perfect family holiday

5 of 5
A fantastic holiday house, tastefully decorated. The pool area is perfectly organised with a great view over Vourkari offering a plenty of seating for dining, sunbathing and lounging. Bedrooms are located on the cooler lower ground while living area is situated on the upper level providing plenty of living area with stunning views of the sunset. The house is very conveniently situated, within a walking distance from numerous restaurants and shopping. The house is fully equipped catering to all needs. The caretaker is very attentive and has been immediately available to provide assistance when needed. The island has very clean beaches, great dining and very good service. Residents are friendly and helpful. We can't recommend this holiday package more.
