Small Harbor

Kyriakoulou beach is on the right cove after the cape between Chalkos and Kapsali. It is small, with white pebbles, green waters and high rocks, accessible by sea or through the gorge that starts at the cave of Agia Sophia, near Kalamos and has a small pond just before reaching the beach.

If you have just left the village of Kalamos, there are many swimming options nearby. Chalkos is one of the most popular beaches on the island, located just a few kilometers away - a pebbled beach with crystal blue waters! A canteen operates in the summer; you can also rent umbrellas and deck chairs and relax for hours.

Anyone who visits the beach Diakofti will be confused and wonder if they are in some exotic island! The water is shallow and turquoise and the color of the sand is white. Located on the northeast side of the island, in one of the most beautiful sites of Kythera next to the harbor, it is an ideal beach for young children because of its depth.


Between Kaladi and Komponada is the beach of Vlychada. There is a dirt road to the beach but it is very rough even for off-road vehicles.

Next to the port and beach of Kapsali lies the hidden beach of Sparagario. It is located in the end of the stream coming from Chora, between two steep slopes, like a canyon.

Just next to the beach of Lorentzos, at the end of the Paleochora canyon you’ll find Kakia Lagada. During the winter months, a large lake is created just behind the beach by the water coming from the gorge.

About 4 kilometers away from the village of Kalamos, after you pass a dirt road, you will reach the small cove of Vroulea. Its small port overlooks the islets Kapelo and Koufo.

Looking at the sea from the village of Agia Pelagia, you’ll see several beaches on your right; one of them is the beach of Lorentzo. Located between Firi Ammos and Kakia Lagada, it is one of the largest beaches on the island, with crystal clear water, sand and pebbles.

Komponada is one of the wildest beaches on the east part of the island. Located between Firi Ammos of Kalamos and Kaladi, it has large pebbles and very deep waters.

There are two beaches named Firi Ammos on the island. The first and most famous is in the southeast, near the village of Kalamos.
