    Kea is one of the Cycladic islands, relatively near to Athens

    It is little known to non-Greeks, but it is a favorite with wealthy Athenians who own holiday homes there. Its charm lays in the serene and picturesque villages, the clear waters and wonderful beaches. This 2-day Family Sailing Trip to Kea Island from Athens is the perfect way to experience the island!

    We’ve included a suggested itinerary which is fully customizable depending on if you would like to extend you stay or sail to another island after. Feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss the Family Sailing Trip to Kea Island in more detail.

    Day 1: Departure from Athens, stops: Karthea’s beach, Spathi beach

    We will collect your family from your hotel in Athens, and then drive you out to the port at Lavrio. In Lavrio you will be introduced to the skipper and you will board your boat! Younger kids might want to keep an eye out for pirates during the 3-hour journey across the sea to Kea, where the boat can anchor near Karthea’s beach. Here, you can enjoy a swim, look at the ruins of an ancient temple, and have a light lunch aboard or on the shore.

    The next stop is the beach of Spathi, which is thought to be one of the best on Kea. There is plenty of time for everyone to swim, sunbathe, and have fun. In the evening, the boat will anchor at port, and your family can visit one of the best seafood restaurants on the island.

    Day 2: Family stroll in Kea Chora, a visit to an Agrotourism Farm, Xyla beach

    On your second day, it is time to explore the island. First of all, the quaint alleyways of Chora await, along with at least one stop for a Greek coffee and a pastry! From here, we suggest a visit to a kid-friendly agrotourism farm. Kids will love watching the traditional pasteli (a local sweet) being made, as well as tasting them! Lunch will consist of locally made products such as pies, cheese, olives, and salads accompanied by the famous Kea honey.

    After lunch, there is still time to visit another beach, swim, and relax. We suggest Xyla beach which is on the east coast of the island. Finally, it is time to set sail for the mainland port at Lavrio, where transport back to your hotel in Athens will be waiting for you.
