Kithnos, Greece

Located southeast of Kea and northwest of Serifos, Kithnos (also spelled Kythnos) is typical of the acrid, rugged islands found throughout the Aegean Sea. Its brown-colored hills extend just over 1,000 feet in height. Along the coast are numerous coves and bays, some of them quite beautiful with nearby sandy beaches. Exploring the indented shores aboard your graceful yacht marks a highpoint of Kithnos sailing. The ambience at the port towns and inland villages is laid-back, far removed from the bustle found on islands that are prime tourist destinations. The charm of Kithnos is just that – the quiet, traditional Greek villages, the intimate tavernas, the hospitality of a warm and inviting people. Sailing in Kithnos waters is a journey to serenity, where the pace of life is slow and the subdued beauty is unforgettable.

A selection of low-key cafés, tavernas, and restaurants are in the port and the nearby village of Vourkari, as well as a number of shops. Historic sites and religious monuments are fascinating to explore, and the island is also popular for its more than 30 hiking trails that were once part of the ancient road system linking the villages of the island. The beaches are superb. Kea sailing is a rich and varied adventure in an idyllic setting.
