Kythnos, the Greek island, gets hot in July and August and we aim to start walking early and finish late. This allows time in the middle of the day to laze on the beach, burnish the suntan, swim in the cool clean water, or indulge in one of the water sports available on the island. We can organise for you sea kayaking at Apokrousi beach and snorkel, usually at Aghios Stephanos beach where there are a couple of shipwrecks in the bay. Our programme does not allow time for more in-depth underwater activities with Aquateam ( but the dive centre can organise scuba for those staying on. Also available on Kanala beach is massage with oils such as Thai. Greek woman Kelly is an excellent masseuse and also offers stand-up paddle board (SUP) and yoga, sometimes the two combined together. This slideshow gives an idea of the offerings.
