Kea island rises Kea Islandat the point of the sea-current of the Cavo D'oro, bordering the Aegean Sea and the South Eboic Gulf (the gulf at the south part of Evya island). The island has 1790 inhabitants. The mountain masses, which are encountered in most of the Cyclades, are broken up by small valleys sparsely planted with vines and fruit-trees and run right down to the sea, opening out into pretty little bays. In Angios Nikolaos Bay on the western side of the island there is the Korissia harbour considered to be one of the safest natural harbours in the Mediterranean sea. It is here that one of the first settlements appeared on the island. It was here, too, that the Ionian settlement of Korrisia flourished in the archaic and classical eras. The bay offered a safe refuge for the fleets of the Byzantines, the Franks (1207-1278), the Venetians (1296-1537), the Turks (1537-1821) and for pirate ships as well in the troubled years of the Frankish rule. In 1789 Lambros Katsonis, a lone fighter against the Turks, was blocked here by the Turkish fleet, managed however to escape by dragging his boat at a very narrow tongue of land, known today as the "Katsonis passage.

Kea IslandKia is not so much a tourist destination yet: so you can still lie peacefully on marvellous sandy beaches, accessible only by boat, where the only human traces are a desolate country church, a fisherman's hut or the ruins of an ancient city. If you have the chance to visit a country home in Kea (Tzia) you will be amazed by the practicality and wisdom of traditional folk architecture. The "Stegadi" (the main chamber of the house with its thick stone walls and a roof made from a single piece of slate and a thick layer of earth above it) is a cool oasis even in the hottest summer afternoons, while in winter it keeps out the icy northern winds and maintains a cosy warmth inside. Kea ( also called Tzia) is also famous for its paths as the “ Paradise of walkers”. The island has paths for 36 km length 65% of which are paved and a great part of them lead to isolated beaches. Untouched nature, sandy beaches, crystal sea, silence and quite for real relaxing sailing holiday among the Greek Islands.
