Loutra Thermal Springs
For natural spa lovers, we suggest you visit the hot springs of Kythnos that are located at the coastal village of Loutra (Baths). There is a hot spring located in the Hydrotherapy Centre, which was founded in the years of King Otto. The second hot spring flows freely towards the sea and the visitor can enjoy it completely free in Loutra Beach.
Hot water is collected in a rock-enclosed little paddling pool area where it mixes with the seawater to make a nice thermal pool. Enjoy a natural spa. The thermal springs of Loutra are well known for the therapeutic properties since antiquity. The basins of king Otto and queen Amalia are exhibited within the hydrotherapy centre of Kythnos.
Discover the history of Kythnos through visiting the archaeological sites of the island. The ancient capital of the island is Vryokastro at the NE side of the island (inhabited since the 10th c. BC). The archaeological research brought to light the fortified settlement, the ancient port, the sanctuary of Demeter on the top of the Acropolis, public buildings, the necropolis and large quantities of finds from various categories.
Chora, Loutra, Driopida and Merichas port
Chora or Messaria, the current capital of the island dated from the 17th century, is one of the most elegant and spacious Cycladic towns, that will inspire you with the scenic paved alleyways, small plateaus and stairs arcades. Chora is an unspoilt Cycladic settlement with whitewashed cube houses and coloured doors and windows. The atmospheric Chora is pedestrianised and well worth exploring.
Scuba Diving and Snorkelling
