Located in the western Cyclades, Kythnos is an amazing destination, with a wild natural landscape, exotic beaches and traditional villages. Thanks to its proximity to Athens, it has become a popular destination for short trips and weekend getaways, especially for visitors who enjoy locations with an authentic atmosphere.
Kythnos island has some quaint villages, including Chora (the island’s capital), Driopida and Loutra. The villages stand out for their elegant architecture, strollable alleys, and laid-back atmosphere.
The coastline of the island is dotted with many beaches that stand out for their natural beauty. From shingle to sand and from organized to unspoiled, all beaches have a relaxing ambiance and are ideal for swimming. The most impressive one is certainly Kolona, which is a long strip of sand, forming two sandy beaches on both sides.
