The Greek island of Kea is located in the Aegean Sea and is one of the Cycladese group of islands. Kea is roughly 20 km from Cape Sounio and 60 km to the south east of Athens, the Greek capital. The island is not particularly large, measuring 9 km wide and 19 km long, and its main villages are Korissa and Vourkari. One of the most popular visitor attractions on the island is the pretty port of Korissia, which is surrounded by white washed houses with colourful roofs, the enamel factory, winding cobbled alleys and picturesque churches. Visitors will often see caiques and fishing boats in the harbour.
The island's crystal clear waters make it a popular destination for scuba divers. The island's waters have excellent visibility, is rich in marine life and is great for wall diving. Some of the most popular dive sites around the island are the wreck of the steamship Patris which sank in 1868 and also the famous wreck of HMS Britannic, the sister ship of the Titanic, which is located around 1.5 nautical miles offshore. The latter is popular with Tec divers as the wreck is at a depth of around 120 meters.
The Greek island of Sifnos is located in the western end of the Cyclades group of islands and is typical of the islands of the Cyclades with its traditional architecture, lovely calm beaches, pretty tavernas and hills. The island's south coast is where most of its popular beaches are located and many have soft sand, crystal clear water and good facilities. A popular attraction on the island is the lovely Monastery of Chrissopighi which is the island's protector. The most picturesque village on the island is Kastro, which is surrounded on three sides by views of the Aegean Sea, and is characterised by narrow streets, stone built houses and beautiful views of the sea. The village can trace its history back 4,000 years with evidence of its past visible in many places and includes part of its defensive wall which was built in around 800 BC.
The island's port is located in the town of Kamares. During the summer months there are daily services of both high speed and conventional ferries to the island. Ferries connect Sifnos with Piraeus and to the other Cycladic islands such as Serifos, Folegandros, Kythnos, Milos, Ios, Santorini and Crete.
