Holiday on the island of Kythera-Cythere.

Located on the cusp of the Ionian and Aegean Seas, Kythera-Cythere is an important trade port and military base. As a former trade port and important crossing point, the island's culture has many influences that can still be seen today. The permanent population of the island is approximately 3,500. The port of Diakofti, where the majority of ferries and trade boats arrive, is a recent development. Diakofti replaced the former port city of Agia Pelagia in recent years. The renovation of the Kythera Island National Airport has improved transport to both other islands and to mainland Greece.

Things to do

Chora:

Explore the city of Chora, the island's capital. On the Greek islands, most capital towns are simply called 'Chora', which means town. In order to reach Chora, you need to cross the gorge from the village of Strapodi. Narrow streets with white-washed buildings characterize this historical town cut into the mountainside.

Byzantine Museum:

Visit the Byzantine Museum, located on the square of the village of Kato Livadi. The Holy Metropolis of Kythera granted the Church of the Analipsis to the Byzantine Museum to house both Byzantine-era and early Christian Art. Many of these pieces are the result of archaeological work that has taken place in various monuments and churches in Kythera.

Fonisa Waterfall:

The village of Mylopotamos is home to a series of 22 watermills, all of which have their origin at the Fonisa waterfall. The Monastery of Orphan Mary is located halfway down the side of the hill where the Fonisa waterfall flows. Adjacent to the monastery is the second biggest cave on the island.

Beach at Avlemonas:

The village of Avlemonas is located on the Eastern edge of the island. Above the beach on the hill is a Venetian fortress and monastery that is open at all hours for visitors. The adjacent beach, named Paleopolis, is also quite lovely.

Crete:

The island of Crete is the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean, and a very popular tourist sight. The capital city of Heraklion is full of sightseeing opportunities from the Byzantine, Venetian, and Ottoman eras. The Venetian fortress of Rocco al Mare is of particular interest. Located at the end of a massive dock, this fortress guarded the old harbour.

Patras:

The city of Patras is the third-largest urban area and regional capital of Western Greece. Patras has a total population of approximately 230,000 people. Every year, the city hosts one of the world's most exciting Carnival celebrations, including satirical floats and balls. Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to Patras to enjoy Carnival in a Mediterranean climate.

Weather in Kythera-Cythere

Weather is consistent with a Mediterranean climate. Summer temperatures peak in July and August and reach the mid-30s, and dip to around 10°C in colder months. A group of annual winds called the Etesians (or Meltemi in Turkish) blow from mid-May to mid-September. These winds are most active in the late afternoon and die down in the evening. The Etesians are most dangerous for sailors.

Travel to Kythera-Cythere

Travelling to Kythera-Cythere is easiest by plane. Kythera Island International Airport (KIT) is located west of the port city of Diakofti. Flights leave and arrive daily from Athens (ATH). Additionally, a ferry system connects the island to the ports of Neapolis, Gythelo, Kissamos, and Piraeus. Both car-carrying and 'commuting' ferries traverse these paths daily in the low season, and more often during high tourist season.

                                                      A beautiful house on a lovely island

                                                      4 of 5
                                                      It was our first time in Kythera and we could not have picked a greater house on a better location. Tryfilanika is very near Potamos, the largest village on the island and close to the main crossroad from where you can reach every corner of Kythera. The house is comfortable, spacious, excellently furnished with everything one may need on a Greek island holiday (including the essential air-condition units!) and amazingly comfortable beds. Water pressure was a bit of a challenge when more than one of us wanted to shower the same time, but a small matter when it comes to holidays. The food on the island was delicious and I have to admit the locals have been the most friendly, kind and hospitable people we have ever met!
