Relax on a holiday in Kythnos.

With over 70 beaches, Kythnos is a fantastic holiday destination. Important historical and cultural markers make for an interesting and entertaining trip. Home to under 2,000 people, the island has become a fairly popular tourist destination in the last few years. The beach at Kolona is an absolute must-see location.

HomeAway provides villas on Kythnos for all group sizes, big and small, making it that much easier to enjoy everything the island has to offer. HomeAway has Kythnos self catering available for larger groups, perhaps several families meeting for a holiday, including Kythnos apartments that can sleep 10+ each and come with a wide variety of amenities that help make that home from home feeling. More compact rentals are available for smaller groups, including young families – those with children can rent family-sized houses with pools that provide the necessary space, to ensure that everyone can relax and have fun. For those searching for a slightly livelier island, Mykonos holiday homes are also available, while villas on Santorini will prove the perfect getaway spot for those needing quiet and seclusion.

Things to do

Merichas:

The small village of Merichas lies on the west coast of Kythnos. Ferries from nearby islands, such as Piraeus, dock in Merichas. Explore the nearby site of Vryokatsro, the ancient capital of the island. These 7th-century ruins include temples, altars, and buildings. The church of Panagia Flambourini is also a must-see.

Katafiki Cave:

Believed to be one of the largest caves in Greece, Katafiki cave is very close to Driopida, the previous capital of the island. The cave, first discovered in the late 1800s, was used as an iron mine until 1939. It was also used for shelter during World War II.

Driopida:

The former capital of Driopida is lined with white-washed houses with tiled, slanting roofs. Endless windy streets prohibit cars in certain parts of the town. The town is best known for the cave of Katafiki. This former iron mine has now been restructured into a tourist destination.

Kolona:

Kolona beach has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece. This strip of land is covered in fine, golden sand and surrounded by sea. Kolona is best reached by car or taxi boat. Hiking is unadvisable in windy weather. A tavern opens during the day time to accommodate hungry travellers at the bar.

Byzantine Museum of Kythnos:

The church of Agios Georgios houses the Byzantine and Ecclesiastical Museum of Kythnos. The museum houses 150 Byzantine and post-Byzantine icons, including Orthodox crosses, vestments, and manuscripts. Some of these pieces date back to the 18th century, having been created by the monks at Mount Athos.

Santorini:

Visit the island of Santorini on a Kythnos holiday; it is what remains of a volcanic eruption that created a lagoon with very steep cliffs on all sides. The capital of Fira runs along the highest rise of these cliffs. Exploring Santorini's wine culture is a must, as wineries on the island make the strong Vinsanto.

Weather on Kythnos

The weather on Kythnos is Mediterranean in nature. Summers reach near 35°C, but with a notable lack of humidity. Winters bring more precipitation and an average temperature of 9°C in January. The Etesian Winds effect the Cyclades and Ionian islands from May through October. Mostly active in the late afternoon, these winds can create dangerous conditions for sailors and those on the western coasts of various islands.

Travel to Kythnos

Travelling to Kythnos is straightforward. Fly into either Athens Airport (ATH) or Syros Island National Airport (JSY). From either location, transfer to any number of ferry lines. Car-carrying and passenger ferries alike run daily in the low season and more frequently in the summer months. Ferries arrive in the port town of Merichas, and the Merichas-Kithnou Road runs between Merichas and Kithnou, through the town of Episkopi.

The house was great - traditional Cycladic style finished to a very high standard with panoramic views. Everything we needed for a perfect and very comfortable stay and the place was immaculately maintained. Centrally located on the island so was a great base for exploring the different beaches and little villages.

The island is a very convenient and excellent choice since it is only one hour away from Laurio, yet it is a whole different world. There are so beautiful beaches to visit and a variety of cafeterias and restaurants. The property that we stayed was located near koundouros beach which was a very lovely beach - the best in my opinion - . We were 3 familes and we all considered that the property fitted to our needs on the best possible way ! The private balconied rooms, each one with individual bathrooms gave each family the chance to enjoy independence whilst allowing everyone also to get together. It is a last year construction so everything was new. The property is very well equipped especially the kitchen which helped us prepare breakfast and every day meals. Actually the pictures of the house do not depict the spectacular sunset views ! These hours that we spent, watching the sunset are unforgettable ! The exterior of the house is on my opinion the best ! We spent most of our time there, enjoying the swimming pool, watching the breathtaking sunsets, having barbecue dinners, enjoying the swing ! A very small beach is also 20 meters away from the property and we found this also fascinating since we enjoyed full independence . We were impressed by the kindness of the owners. They had arranged all the details for us, cars that we took from the airport, as wells as boat tickets from Laurio to Kea and back. I would happily recommend this villa .
