Activities on the Island

Kythera is an island lying opposite the south-eastern tip of the Peloponnese peninsula. It is traditionally listed as one of the seven main Ionian Islands, although it is distant from the main group. The island’s rugged terrain is a result of prevailing winds from the surrounding seas which have shaped its shores into steep rocky cliffs with deep bays. It has many beaches, of various composition and size and only half of them can be reached by road through the mountainous terrain of the island.

 

The island has maintained a very rich flora and fauna. Of particular mention is the largest variety of herbs in Greece. One of the most attractive sights in Kythera is the magnificent location Mills, a large valley with rich springs, streams, waterfalls, lakes, stone bridges and traditional watermills, amid lush vegetation of plane trees and Mediterranean plants. The local cuisine is a real surprise for those who love Mediterranean cuisine, fresh fish and lobster. The most famous local product is honey from thyme, one of the best in the world, having received numerous international awards.
