1 Day and 2 Day Kythnos Itinerary
1 Day Itinerary
09:00-12:00 – Rent a Car and Drive to Kolona Beach. This remote beach is a small strip of a beach located on the western side of the island. It is a beautiful beach that is connected to a small peninsula. Due to its location, it is quiet and a great place to swim.
12:00-15:00 – Drive to Loutra for Lunch. You will be hungry after the swimming. The village of Loutra is located on the other side of the island from Kolona Beach. After lunch, you can take a dip in the thermal springs in Loutra.
15:00-18:00 – Head back to Merichas to have dinner. Ostria Restaurant is a great choice in the port. They serve fresh fish and have wonderful service. Because of the location, it is a great place to watch the sunset.
2 Day Itinerary
After your first day on the island, add-on one more day with these activities.
Morning and Afternoon – Extend your rental car and take a drive to Dryopida. After exploring the village, visit the Katafyki Cave. The cave is natural but was used for mining for many years. The entrance is free but you should leave a tip for the guide. They will take you through the accessible parts of the cave and tell you its history.
Afterwards, you can visit the Folklore museum in the center of town. It is a traditional house and contains all the traditional tools and clothing of a farming family.
Dinner – Take the scenic drive to Chora. Enjoy exploring the village with its cute streets and shops. Then settle in for dinner at Messaria. We highly recommend the baked eggplant. The portions are large here so you might want to share.
