We ankered on our sailing trip in the bay at the Kolona Beach. It was simply beautiful. The sandbank, which divides the two bays is just incredible. A little further down there is a hot spring at a remote, isolated beach too. You really should...More

Water and sand, just phenomenal! A little boat takes you over and then it feels like paradise. A must if you are on Kythnos!

Kythnos' famous Kolona Beach is worth a visit; it's on the western side of the island. A strip of sand with the sea on both sides, it does make for some great views. A nice place to swim and spend a couple of hours.

Maybe one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen, yet, to get there can be dangerous, considering the road is too narrow with a big slope. You need to bring your own umbrella or sit at a nearby beach. It is incredible that local...More

The most beautiful beach on the island! I would take the ferry from Merichas unless your car is good on the dirt road. If you are sensitive to sun be prepared because there are no umbrellas :).
