Nisos Kythnos Travel Guide
Swim in peaceful beaches
This beach at the background was just 5’ walk from Merihas. It was very peaceful, we enjoyed our swim some really hot days. Actually, most of the times we had the beach for our own :) We also ate some tasteful figs from the trees there! lolThere are more than 70 beaches over...
Very close to Dryopida village is the Katafiki cave, a small but nice cave with stalagmites etc The entrance was for free in 2004 but they told me that they will charge a small price the year after. The light inside was very poor for protections so the quality of the photos...
Dryopida is a small but picturesque village with 500 inhabitants. It’s easily accessible by bus. Have your time here because it is nice to stroll around and relax in a local cafe, we had some cold beers here, an incredible greek salad and some interesting conversations with...
Hora, the capital
This is a small but beautiful small village up on a hill. The locals call it Hora but the official name is Messaria with 600 inhabitants. You can drive here by a car but there’s a bus connection with Meriha. Walk around the small cobblestone alleys and wash down the heat in...
Merihas, the port
With 250 inhabitants its very strange to see how busy becomes during summer. Almost every local here works for the tourists but they have their houses in a village. Merihas is the port and the basic starting point for everywhere. I used Merihas as a base for exploring the...

many rooms at Merihas
I cant suggest any hotel or give any address but like everywhere in Cyclades you can get out of the boat and ask for a room. Maybe you have a problem in the middle of August but all other days will be ok to find a room. The cost is 30-40 euro for a double room. Walk around...
what to eat
You can have your lunch/dinner right next to the sea as you can see on the picture. Along the waterfront are all the restaurants and the cafes. Even if the food was bad I would stay there for the view. But the food was good! I ate tasty local food in almost every restaurant, all made by fresh local fishes, tomatoes etc. I tasted some nice fishes but I tried also some local plates like:
Siglino (pork with grease), Savori (marinated fishes), Sfougata (croquette with cheese), Kolopia (pies with spinach and rice)

relax my friend
You are here to relax! Some restaurants to please you with local plates and some cafes/pubs where you can do people watching because all of them are next to the sea so young and old people walk around there after sunset. So, no big clubs etc. I had very good time in the café just opposite the port. There was a balcony where we had good view (see pic) and we enjoyed our beers while we were listening to some 80’s hits.

ride a donkey!
Apart from those who work for tourism the locals have their own old customs, go fishing, talking for hours at the local cafes and using some animals for transportation or other jobs like for carry around things. I noticed many horses and donkeys doing their job… poor...
how to go there
Boats departing from Piraeus or Lavrio port. The trip lasts around 2,5 hours but sometimes more because of bad weather. I’ve heard about a fast boat that do the trip in 2 hours but I don’t know for sure.If you don’t have a car there are some local buses that connect Meriha...
buy souvenirs or eat again?
We bought some tasty bread at Dryopida. We also found some great moustokouloura a typical greek biscuit. The bakery was so tiny that you couldnt get inside! The baker was coming at the door with the bread!!
Try to buy some almond toffee at Loutra.
At Merihas you can find tourist magnets, card postals etc
The pictures are from the bakery at Dryopida.
