Where To Swim.
- The beaches in Kythnos are simply beautiful. Little creeks, clean crystal waters and trumpeters offer some shadow, necessary under the hot summer sun. But if you have to choose one, the most impressive beach of the island is Kolones beach. A big lane of sand divides the sea and gives you the feeling that you are simultaneously on two different beaches. The great scenery completes the view of the monastery at the top of the mountain and the cute boats on the sea. If you have kids, they will love it!!
Cyclades islands are a must-visit summer destination and as most Greeks, I have also visited most of them. Some of them, twice. Recently and for the first time I spent a weekend in the small island of Kythnos and a few days ago I wrote about my stay there, in Guardiero Hotel. It was fantastic, the island was a revelation. I tried to see as much as I could during my two days stay there and although the time was limited, it was enough to love the place. Either way, I believe Kythnos is an ideal destination for a weekend. It is really close to Athens and so small, to tour around it in a couple of days. Even now that the weather in Greece is in an "Autumn mood" and swimming is only a summer memory, another visit there feels like a great opportunity for rest and relaxation. Through my icons today, I hope I can give you a few ideas on things to do if you choose Kythnos for a small weekend getaway. And if you don`t have the time to do it this year, put it on your schedule for next summer, you will have a great time.
