Kea island, which is also known as Tzia, sits in the Aegean sea, south of Attica and belongs to the Cyclades group of Greek islands. Although it is typically a Cycladic island, Kea has a different landscape and different architecture than its Cycladic counterparts. Kea doesn’t have the little whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches of its neighbors, but it is characterized by earthy tones and elegant architecture.
Kea Greece is a verdant island with many cultivations and forests, while it boasts a wonderful landscape. 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.
