One of the smallest islands in the Cyclades province and not far from Athens, Kea is known by its stone-carved Lion of Kea which is a symbol of this traditionally beautiful isle. It strikes the perfect balance between crowded and empty offering sunny beaches with just the right amount of development in the rocky cliffs overlooking the shores. Vourkari, Korissia and Loulida are where most of the bars and taverns are situated; Kambi and Gialiskari have secluded beaches while the ancient town of Karthea hosts temples of Athena and Apollo.
Locals still earn their living from the time-honored occupations of fishing and agriculture which is wonderful for visitors who enjoy locally-produced cuisine like lobster pasta and mushroom pie. Discover this lively island with a rich history from a Kea vacation rental or a Kea vacation condo.
