About Kea

Kea belongs to the Cyclades group, but it’s really close to Attica on the mainland, and looks and feels entirely different to the rest of the group. The landscape varies from a spectacularly craggy coastline, to expanses of dryness, then fertile hills and verdant valleys of orchards and olive groves. The architecture is earthier, and less stark than the rest of the group, more in harmony with the landscape, and there’s a picturesque capital and some lovely seaside towns. The reason you might not have heard of this peaceful isle with its crystal clear waters and rich history, is that it’s a really popular place for Athenians to have a summer villa, and they book it all up quick smart.

Travel Information

  • The only way to reach Kea is by ferry from the port of Lavrion, a small town on the southern side of Attica. The easiest way to get to Lavrion is from the ferry port close to Athens airport.
  • If you want to hire a car we recommend you visit our online partner,Rentalcars.
  • Summers on Kea are warm and sunny, with temperatures within the 25 - 30°C range. Kea stays relatively pleasant in winter as well. Whenever you’re visiting it’s a good idea to pack another layer if you’re walking in the cool, green mountains, the temperature difference might surprise you.
