Kythira is said to be the island of Aphrodite and Eros. According to Greek mythology, Aphrodite was born in the foam of the sea of Kythira. An island that belongs to the Ionian Islands but is close to the Cretan and the Aegean Sea. A place with enchanting beaches and lush vegetation with a population of only 3000 inhabitants.
In Kythira with a rental car from Thessaloniki Car Rental, you have the option to go to the gorge of Tsakonas and see an idyllic landscape. We suggest you drive to the picturesque village of Mylopotamos where the Neraida waterfall is located. It is a magical green landscape with streams, poplars, and plane trees. There is also the “Neraida waterfall” that falls from a height of 20 meters in a green lake with cold water. The feeling that the visitor has, is that he is starring in a fairy tale. Surely a hike will refresh you, and if you are bold you may take a dip in the cold water of the small lake. Somewhere nearby are the abandoned watermills and several ponds. Another impressive place you can go by boat is the rocky islet of Hytra or Egg, located opposite the port of Kapsali. There you will find an impressive sea cave with crystal clear shallow waters around 1.5 meters. Somewhere there, the seals of the area find shelter. The landscape is wild but at the same time impressive.
The beaches in Kythira are unique. With the rental car in Kythira, you can go to Firi beach on the east side of the island. The beach has a blue flag and the sea is crystal clear. The beach is covered with fine red pebbles and sand. If you still prefer something close to the port of the island you can swim on the beach Diakofti which consists of fine sand and nearby there are several tourist attractions. In addition, there are other beaches on the island such as Sparagario, Fourni, Lagada, and Halkos.
