The truth is all Kythnos beaches are beautiful, with golden sand and crystal clear waters! It’s hard to choose the best of them, but we’re going to present you some of the 65 in total Kythnos beaches.
Located next to the popular seaside village of Loutra, Loutra Kythnos is one of the most beautiful Kythnos beaches. This beach has soft sand and crystal clear waters that are hotter on the right side of the beach, due to the thermal spring pouring into the sea at this point. At Loutra beach you can find traditional cafeterias and bars with tables on the sand, as well as many Kythnos hotels. Tip: At the little dock of Loutra, where many boats and yachts moor, there are many traditional taverns and restaurants, where you can taste the local food.
Kolona beach is probably the best beach in the Cyclades and one of the most popular beaches in Greece. Imagine a large strip of sand connecting Kythnos with the little island of Saint Minas, creating two beautiful beaches on the right and left side of this strip.
One of the hidden treasures of Kythnos! It is found just before Kolona and that's probably why it is overshadowed by the impressive beach of Kolona.
Apokrousi Kythnos is one of the longest and most loved Kythnos beaches! The access is quite easy and once you get there, you can enjoy the natural shade of the trees, the crystal clear waters and the traditional Greek taverns.
Shinari Kythnos is the perfect choice for those who stay at Loutra, as it is easily accessed by foot.
Don’t miss to visit this beach, close to Loutra. But, be careful on your way down to the beach, because the road is track.
Skylou Kythnos is perfect for those who love emerald waters! Leave your car up on the road above the beach and walk down to the beach to enjoy swimming until the sun goes down. This beach is not a recommended choice for kids, though, as there is not any shade.
Although the way down to this beach may be difficult, it is definitely worth it!
Episkopi Kythnos is a beautiful large beach with amazing waters and the natural shade of the trees, ideal for families. If you want a refreshment, there is an all-day bar at the beach.
Agios Sostis Kythnos
This is a large Kythnos beach, with pebbles and one of the best sea bottoms of the island. You better bring an umbrella with you, as there is no other shade at this beach. Tip: If you want to join a traditional Greek feast, there is one organized every year in the honor of the small church of Agios Sostis.
Agios Stefanos, Naousa, Kiouri
These three golden sandy beaches are located on the eastern side of Kythnos Greece, close to Agios Yannis. You can reach these beaches from Chora Kythnos, Merihas, and Driopida. Tip: If you happen to spend your holidays on a yacht, then these beaches are a total must!
Agios Yiannis Kythnos
One of the best things about Agios Yiannis Kythnos is the smells of thyme and oregano that spread around. Enjoy swimming and relaxing at the beach and don’t miss to visit (and of course, take photos of) the cute white chapel located there. Tip: On the south part of this beach, there is Cape Tzoulis, where copper mines have been found.
