There is much to discover on the Island of  Kythnos, one of the lovely Greek Cycladic Islands. Plentiful archaeological sites, monasteries, churches, museums, villages, festivals, and eateries await charterers visiting this island while on a Greece luxury private yacht cruise. And that’s before considering all of the beaches, outdoor activities, and scenic overlooks to experience when docked in Kythnos on a Greek Cycladic yacht charter itinerary

Below are a few highlights of this stunning island in the Cyclades. This is just a sample of all the wonders waiting to be explored on Kythnos!

Archaeological Sites

Kithnos, Greece

The archaeological site of Maroulas is perhaps the most well-known excavation on the island. It contains several graves, houses, and stone tools that tell the stories of the ancient Mesolithic settlement that once called Kythnos home. A skeleton found at this site is thought to be one of the oldest ever discovered in the Cyclades area. 

The castles of Oria and Vriokastro, along with the archaeological site at Vriokastro, are also excellent places for history buffs. Learn about the underwater harbor in the ancient capital city of Vriokastro and drop the sea kayaks in the water to kayak over the underwater ancient harbor for a closer look., See the castle and a handful of residential remnants in the ancient city itself, or travel to the medieval capital of Oria for a comparatively more recent glimpse into history.

The Cave of Katafyki

For postcard-worthy natural beauty, the Cave of Katafyki is a top contender. Featuring stunning stalactites and stalagmites, this cave is one of the largest in all of Greece. It once served as a mine and a shelter for the people who lived on the island during the tumultuous years of World War II. 

Kolona Beach

Most people have to hike or rent a four-wheel drive jeep to access the beach of Kolona, but yacht charterers can simply sail to the northwest edge of Kythnos and enjoy the shore in peace. 

The Thermal Springs of Loutra

These thermal springs have been known for their healing capabilities since ancient times. People travel to these soothing hot springs to seek relief from ailments such as arthritis and rheumatism. Even the first royal couple that ruled over modern Greece frequented the springs. Today, their basins are still available to tour in Kythnos’s hydrotherapy center. 

Hora

Round out the trip to Kythnos by visiting the capital city of Hora, also called the Settlement of Messaria. This stunning city features white houses with sparkling blue glass windows, quaint windmills of stone, winding alleyways, courtyards covered in flowers, and everything else one might hope for from a modern Greek city. Seek high points to enjoy the view over the sloping mountains and sprawling countryside, or stop in a local eatery for fresh Kythnos produce and authentic cuisine.
