Day 2: Cape Sounion - Kythnos

Route from Athens to the Cycladic Islands

Kythnos

Kythnos is probably the most unassuming island in the Cyclades. Myths and legends make no mention of it and its history features the same chapters as its neighbours. This might be surprising since Kythnos is one of the most ancient inhabited islands in the archipelago. Local towns aren’t bursting with attractions and architectural landmarks, so the island isn’t experiencing a boom in popularity. But that’s just fine with the Greeks who are busy buying up villas here to vacation in peace and tranquility.

If you decide to go to Kythnos, you’ll be met by the port city of Merikhas. Compared to the island’s other towns, it can more or less be considered a tourist city. Its environs feature the island’s best beaches – Martinakia and Episkopi. You can take a look at Hora, but it’s best to head straight for the village of Driopis, built around one of the biggest caves in Greece.
