Kythnos (Greek: Κύθνος) is a Greek island and municipality in the Western Cyclades between Kea and Serifos. It is 56 nautical miles (104 km) from the harbor of Piraeus. The municipality Kythnos is 100.187 km (38.68 sq mi) in area and has a coastline of about 100 km (62 mi). It has more than 70 beaches, many of which are still inaccessible by road. Of particular note is the crescent-shaped isthmus of fine sand at Kolona.

Awesome beach(es). The real thing is even nicer than the photos. But one needs to be prepared as there is no natural shade on the beach. Also, a lot of boats come and anchor on both sides very close to the shore, which is rather annoying. The beach as such is spectacular though.

Another typical orthodox church built on top of a hill, offering great views. They suggest that if you are a strong believer this one is a must go; I suggest that even if you are not, just pay it a visit for the views.

A very nice cave. Well... we were kinda caught in a 100% Greek tour (minus us just 2 non Greek speakers) so...although I'm sure it was interesting... the explications kinda went over our heads... the stalactites were mostly small, but knowing that this cave was used for refugees in WWII the old graffiti and the actual atmosphere in the cave was very nifty. At the end when the guide figured out we couldn't understand anything, we had a good laugh. All in all, if you're in the area, definitely give it a go...

A wonderful beach located in the south east of the Kythnos island. The water is crystal clear but above that there's almost nothing. Remember to bring a coffee and something to eat

Kythnos Hiking Holidays and Private Tours offers guided hiking across the Greek island of Kythnos, its fabulous scenery, wildlife, agriculture, Beaches, and traditional villages. Trips can vary from just an afternoon to tours of several days including visits to an ancient city and an old Byzantine castle.
A friend who was Reading one of my holiday brochures drew my attention to this walking week. I booked the week as part of a package and can only praise the organisation and professionalism of the whole operation. The organisers Nigel and Katerina have extensive local knowledge of the island, nothing was too much trouble for them. Katerina who speaks excellent English (far better than my Greek ) led the walks, she is a surveyor/engineer with outstanding local knowledge. Nigel had an extensive walking program mapped out for the week. I particularly enjoyed the walks to Orias castle, Aghios Stephanos, Lefkes and Flambouria. A highlight was meeting a local old man on his donkey, with his dog, using the path to head to Chora from his home. The evenings were organised personally by Nigel who took us to a variety of different tavernas on the island. I was asked for comments while on the hikes and I felt that some of the paths would be hard to find on my own, so the guided option is the best. I cannot wait to return and hopefully complete the routes which could not be fitted in to the week. Lunches could be purchased at the bakery and shop across the road from the hotel in Chora and the walks were in general 4 to 5 hours long, I shall definitely return in a cooler month than June.

tra le spiagge raggiungibili in macchina a Kythnos questa è una delle più belle, a mio avviso.
E' sulla costa sud est dell'isola, grande, di sabbia grossolana, senza tamerici, per cui sarebbe consigliabile un ombrellone. Sul fondo della spiaggia c'è la cappella dedicata a Agios Nicholaos. Bisogna lasciare l'auto all'altezza della prima casa, dove c'è un cartello "beach" che indica la "scalinata" che bisogna fare per raggiungere la spiaggia (a luglio era in rifacimento). Di solito ci sono uno o due cani del proprietario di una casa in riva al mare. Anche se abbaiano all'arrivo, non sono assolutamente aggressivi.
