Kea island, which is also known as Tzia, is located at the Aegean sea, and belongs to the Cyclades. Kea has a different landscape and different architecture than its Cycladic counterparts. You will not find little whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches of its neighbors, but mostly earthy tones and elegant architecture.
Thanks to its proximity to Athens, Kea has emerged as a great city break destination. Ferries from Athens to Kea depart from Lavrion port in Athens and arrive at the island in about an hour.
