A trip to Kythnos is ideal for those who desire a quiet holiday in a traditional Cycladic environment and an unlimited number of sandy beaches. This barren island forms a very large number of coves, some small, some larger, that can be accessed either by car or by sailing boat.
Accommodation on Kythnos is enough to host its guests, many of which are Greeks who live in Athens, visiting their homeland each summer. No wonder why it still retains its traditional architectural style. However, during the last decade, Kythnos island has opened its arms to foregn tourism. So, make sure you take some time to visit Kythnos, before mass tourism affects it.
Kythnos ferries connect the island to all other Cyclades on a regular basis. However, as schedules are not daily, make sure you plan your visit ahead, if you intend to combine it with some other islands of the Aegean Sea.
