Kea is the westernmost island of the Cyclades. The distance to the mainland is approximately 20 km. It has an area of 128 km² meaning it is quite big. Still; only about 2000 people living there. Tourism on the islands is mainly aiming at trippers from nearby Athens. There are hardly any foreigners visiting the island.

Especially on weekends it gets packed. As a result it is a lot cheaper to come here during the week. Prices tend to get up towards the weekend.

Kea Island

If you are interested in the "true Greece" – and I am not talking about romantic postcard village Greece – Kea might be an interesting place to visit. There are also a few excavations should you get bored with ethnographical studies.

The main source of income are actually orchards. Most of the fruit produced here is sold in Athens. These days tourism contributes to the islands economy as well.

The small port town has little to offer. There are place to stay and places to eat that's about it. You'll find a small church that is kind of OK and a few older buildings; nothing spectacular. The beach near Korissa is OK though. Exploring the surrounding areas you will come across fancy holiday homes of wealthier Athenians. If you are interested in hiking on Kea check the website of Kostis Marulis.

Chora of Kea
The most beautiful town on Kea is the local capital Chora. There you find narrow alleys and the kind of houses that are typical for the Cyclades. It's quite cute and to extend your knowledge about the Stone- and Bronze Age history and culture they have the local archaeological museum. On a little hill, dominating the view is a Venetian castle from the 13th century. Check it out!

Otzias is a small village in the north of Kea. It's more of a bathing resort or that is why people come here. Most of the visitors are Greek. Most of them come here because of the monastery Panagia Kastriani. It's famous for the religious icons there. Even if you are not interested in icons the monastery worth's a visit. The view from there is stunning.

Busses on Kea
There is a bus from the port to Chora every about two hours. The busses are also aligned with the ferry arrivals so you won't have to wait. During summer there are from the port directly to Otzias in the north and Lisses in the south. They go twice a day.

Ferries to Kea
There are three ferries a day from Lavrion on the mainland. During season or weekends this number might be higher. Lavion is one hour bus ride from Athens. Busses go every hour. During summer there are also ferries directly from Athens (Piraeus). They are slightly more expensive than the combination bus – ferry from Lavion. There are hardly any other ferry connections. There only is an occasional boat to Kithnos.

There is no airport on Kea.

Camp site on Kea
There is a good camp site on Kea. It is only a few kilometres from Prisses port. It is situated on the beach and has a mini market that provides you with all you need. The camp site is very basic but quite all right. There is enough shade and even a spot for caravans. What else could you ask for?
