The overall coast of Kythira is stretching 43 nautical miles. Inlets and beaches surround the island. Most with small or big pebbles and a few others with sand are causing you to explore. Most of them you can visit with your vehicle and others only from the sea. In Agia Pelagia and in short distance from the village there are various beaches that you can visit.
It is a small beach in the northeastern part of the island between the beach of Kakia Lagada and Firi Ammos. You can swim in its clear blue waters and enjoy the shade of the small cave created by rocks. The beach is not organized, so you should equip yourself with all the necessary.
It is located in the northern part of the island near the village of Platia Ammos. It is a long beach with pebbles and clear blue waters. Within walking distance from the beach there are shops and taverns where you can drink something refreshing or eat overlooking Elafonissos.
The beach of Agios Nikolaos is located in the northernmost part of the island, near the lighthouse of Karavas. A small chapel divides the beach in half creating two bays. The waters are deep and clear. The beach has small pebbles. It is not organized and quite isolated from the nearest settlement. We recommend you to carry your sun-umbrellas, water and food. For diving lovers there are many barnacles at the rocks around the beach. Take your mask, fins and knife. The access to the beach is by gravel road.
