The island of Kea

Kea is the westernmost island of the Cyclades with a perimeter of about 85km and a surface of 131 square kilometers. The port is just 16 miles from Lavrio, which makes it the closest to Cyclades in Attica and the International Airport El. Venizelos. The highest mountain is Prophet Elias with an altitude of 568 meters. Also on the island there is one of the largest natural harbors (bays) of the Mediterranean, the bay of Agios Nikolaos.

Special products of Kea to look for
During your stay at Kea do not miss a "more substantial taste" from Tzia. Tasting and enjoying local dishes such as "paspalas" (small pieces of pork cooked with tomatoes and eggs), "cigarettes" (pieces of pork meat with fat), "loza" (smoked pork), local sausages (smoked and made with local herbs), traditional cheeses (ksirotiri, mizithra, ksino, kopanisti).

We also recommend you to taste cock of wine, spaghetti with lobster and, of course, fresh fish. Combine your food with a glass of black wine that the locals call "mavroudi".

Before leaving, do not forget to buy local meat, extra virgin olive oil and thyme honey, pasteli, handmade sweets, almonds, but also products such as "spatholado" and "keralifi", which the locals consider to have healing and soothing properties.
