The most fun I had was the moment I travelled there by sea taxi. That's it. When we arrived - not enough employees, all the umbellas were reserved. Was hungry and ordered some food, even the food was crap, a bit cold and uncooked. Spent an hour there and got away. BRING YOUR OWN UMBRELLA (and eat before you go)

Great beach and beach bar. Great bar service and fantastic views. Day time was great. BUT we made a reservation for dinner at 7:30 and didn’t get served our meal until 11:30. Great setting and views but the worst service. 30 minutes before a drink is served. 2 hours before getting bread (had to ask) and another hour for dinner. Yes they were busy but not one time did they come over and tell us they were busy. We were happy to drink and have an appetizer but nothing came. We had to ask for everything. They gave us a bottle of wine for our wait but honestly we were not even drinking wine. Just very disappointing. Go for the views and the beach day. Such a beautiful restaurant just disappointed in the staff response and sense of caring.

Maybe the best beach in Kythnos, sandy and crystal clear waters !
The final part of the road that leads to the beach is rought, need to go very slowly.
Otherwise, you can go there by a small boat that departs from Kythnos port (Merichas) every hour.
Very nich beach bar and extremely nice restaurant with fantastic view.

A fantastic duo of beaches
From Apokrousi beach take an unpaved narrow road to Kolona
Park and walk for 5’ to the beach
There is a beach bar with a bit louder music than necessary
It offers expensive sun beds (40€ the set) on a sort of deck, food, drinks and snacks
Take your umbrella and beach mats or chairs with you
Enjoy beautiful Sandy beach and wonderful waters
Not to miss

There are 2 ways to visit Kolona beach. The first is to pay 10 euros/p.p. and take the boat from Merichas. The other way is to drive the horrible narrow road from Apokrousi beach. We were at Apokrousi beach so we decided to try the freaky road. Please, if you are not an experienced driver, DO NOT do this. It is a shame they do not make a better road to the beach. Otherwise, the beach is really beautiful, there is no natural shade by trees, so you have to pay for sunbed and umbrella. Nice view of sunset!

The place is like paradise with the line if sand dividing the sea and connecting the main land to the island. The sand beautiful the beach amazingly beautiful. The best way to go there is by yacht or with the small boat from Merichas, because the road is really narrow and mostly for donkeys :D If you have 4x4 then no worries.

We went to this beach by boat from Merihas (€10 per person return ticket) as we have heard that the road to this beach is nasty and dangerous. The beach is fantastic with crystal clear waters. A couple of things regarding sunbeds. The sunbeds are very expensive in Kythnos for some reason I do not understand.

The cost of the sunbeds was €30 (first row) for two sunbeds and an umbrella and €20 for the other two rows. In my opinion is not worth this price and you can easily use that money to buy food for lunch,drinks etc.

Despite the above ,the beach is absolutely beautiful.

Lovely beach, offering next to no shade on the non catered beach side. Can get pretty windy, so make sure the umbrella is tied down.

Nice sand, crystal water but only for those who can stand to stay under the sun or can carry their own umbrella. Adventurous road trip to the beach or nice trip with the boat. Either way, you need to walk a lot to get to the famous part of the beach. There is a place with great view for coffee/snack/lunch/drinks but I would not recommend it for lunch- quite low quality. No shower facilities,
