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 Sikinos is one of the Cyclades group of islands and lies between the islands of Ios and Folegandros. Unlike many of its Greek island neighbours, Sikinos does not attract large numbers of visitors and therefore has managed to retain a great deal of its Greek charm. Chora is the island's capital and is one of the smallest and most picturesque villages in the Cyclades and has traditional Cycladic architecture and is built on the slopes of a mountain and comes complete with stunning views of the Aegean Sea. Popular attractions on the island include the Monastery of Episkopi which was first thought to be an ancient temple of the God Apollo but is now known to have the signs of Roman mausoleum architecture. It was built in the 3rd century AD and was modified to a Christian church, complete with a dome and bell tower, in the 17th century.
From the port is Sikinos, ferry services operate to the port of Piraeus with a crossing time of around 3 hours and 30 minutes by high speed ferry and 7 hours and 30 minutes by conventional ferry. Sikinos is also connected by boat with the islands of Folegandros. Ios, Santorini, Serifos, and Sifnos.
