Kea is blessed with numerous beaches offering variety at all levels. You can find organized beaches with paddle boats, snorkeling and diving as well as quiet, secluded private areas. Most are sandy, some have pebbles and rock cliffs at the edge. If it is windy, you will want to head to the Southern and Eastern Beaches which, due to the mountainous nature of the island, block the northern summer Meltemi winds.
