KYTHIRA

A unique and beautiful island

The traveler to Kythira will find an unexpected paradise, well guarded at the point where the Aegean meets the Ionian Sea. The wild beauty that welcomes him/her when he/she approaches from the east, opens the path of mystery which leads to a unique world of myths, legends, history and tradition. The marriage of East and West has always been the advantage of the island, either geopolitically, making it a commercial station; or culturally, with the development of a rare mixed culture; or naturally and environmentally, combining the glittering sun of the Aegean Sea with the euphoria of the Ionian Islands.
