Kythnos Guide

Kythnos is a Greek island that is located very close to Attica and is part of the Cyclades group of islands. The island, sometimes called Thermia because of the thermal springs on the island, is one of the lesser visited islands of the Cyclades but is popular with visitors because of its thermal springs. There is a modern spa located in Loutra, with two hot springs in the area. The spring of Ayio Anargyroi and the spring of Caucasus, where the temperature of the water reaches 52C, are famous for their therapeutic effects and have been since ancient times.

The island's harbour is located at Merihas and the island's capital is called Hora and are both located in the north of the island. In the south, only the areas by the bay of Ayios Dimitrios and Panayia Canála are inhabited. This is where a famous monastery is located within a pine forest.

Ferry services from Kythnos depart to the Port of Piraeus or to the port of Lavrio. The crossing to Piraeus takes approximately 3 hours by conventional ferry and approximately one hour by high speed ferry. The crossing time to Lavrio takes about 2 hours. Kythnos is also connected by sea with the islands of Serifos, Sifnos, Milos, Santorini, Sikinos, Folegandros and Kea.
