The Greek island of Kythnos has more beaches than any other island in the Cycladic group, according to one Greek tourist authority official. The municipality counts nearly 100, though obviously this number includes various short beaches, often hidden away in secret locations. This slideshow reveals a sample of some of the best known and more developed plus some of the more isolated to discover. The beaches appear in clockwise order starting from the port of Merichas (not shown).
