The coastline of Kythira is over 50km in length, and offers the worlds most spectacular secluded beaches.The village of Avlemonas is a beautiful seaside village with a true Greek culture and locals who will show you the Greek way of life.
Breathtaking landscapes are a prominent feature on Kythira Island, which makes it the perfect spot for a relaxing yoga retreat and meditation. Numerous gorges are home to a variety of wildlife and birds, and late in the season golden eagles can be seen circling the skies above the precarious cliff top monastery of Agia Moni. The diverse scenery on offer means Kythira is ideal both for walkers and nature lovers whilst the more artistic can spend days searching for the perfect subject amongst the deserted villages and impressive stone bridges, remnants of past empires.
Although the attractions of the interior are many, the beaches are still a favourite for most, and especially for those practicing yoga. Whether your priorities are secluded splendour or convenience and a sun-bed, Kythira Island has something for everyone.
