Kythnos (Greek: Κύθνος) is a Greek island and municipality in the Western Cyclades between Kea and Serifos. It is 56 nautical miles (104 km) from the harbor of Piraeus. Kythnos is 100 km2 (39 sq mi) in area and has a coastline of about 100 km (62 mi). It has more than 70 beaches, many of which are still inaccessible by road. Of particular note is the crescent-shaped isthmus of fine sand at Kolona.

 The island has two significant settlements, the village of Messaria or Kythnos known locally as Chora, and the village of Dryopis or Dryopida also known as Chorio. Both villages are notable for their winding and often stepped streets, too narrow for vehicular traffic. The villages are very picturesque but in different architectural styles. Chora has the more-typical flat roofs of the Cyclades, while Dryopida's rooftops are slanted and tiled. Chora is also notable for its large Greek Orthodox Church

You can dive sheltered bays, reefs, shallows, caves, shipwrecks and walls full of lobsters, shrimps and crawfish. Every dive takes place in a different location so that you will never get bored.
Deep, VERY DEEP, night, drift but also calm and relaxing dives in protected bays, away from currents in places that are full of life. You will not feel like getting out of the water once you dive into the crystal clear waters of Kythnos. The beautiful seascapes call sea lovers from all over the world for a delightful adventure.
