Activities around KeaVillas

Chora - Ioulida

Ancient Ioulida (Julida or Julis) was one of the four cities that flourished in antiquity. The four cities were Ioulida, Karthaia, Korissia and Piiessa.

The Archaeological Museum of Kea
Here you will have the opportunity to see unique exhibits that have been found in excavations in important historical sites all around the island. The exhibits that stand out are the marble protocycladic statuettes from the prehistoric settlement of Aghia Irini (St Irene), in Vourkari, the headless statue of Nike (meaning “victory”) and the famous Kouros (statue of a youth) of Kea, which were found in the excavations in Karthaia.

In the south-east of Kea are found the remnants of the ancient city of Karthaia, which was one of the four most important cities of the island during the ancient times, autonomous and having its own coin. A large part of its fortification is still extant today. Access on this area is possible by the sea or walking along the ancient path which begins in Katomeria.

Walking Paths
Kea is the ideal place for nature lovers and hikers. The cobbled pathways, 36 km long, were part of the road network connecting the cities-states in the past. Today there are 8 historical footpaths guiding the visitors through Kea’s unparalleled natural and historic riches longing to reveal the island’s secret charms. Every trail has been marked with white and red signs stating the destination and each one has a distinct historical and naturalist interest, gracing the visitors with images of incomparable natural beauty.

Settlements - Villages

Korissia, the natural port of Kea, has been built on top of the ancient city of Korissos. Taking the pathway from Chora, you can’t help but notice the chimney and the exhibits of the historical Emage (enamel) factory, the only greek factory producing enamelware which operated from 1927 to 1957 playing an important part in the financial and social life of the island’s residents.

Vourkari, one breath away from the port, maintains its traditional character and color and constitutes a tourist anchorage for many sailing boats and leisure yachts. There you can enjoy tasting local treats, savoring local cuisine in the tavernas by the sea, visiting art galleries and folk art and souvenir shops. At night the scenery changes and you will enjoy atmospheric moments sipping your drink in the bars by the sea whilst taking in a beautiful sea view. In Katomeria, where the farming and cattle-raising activities of the island are concentrated, you will find many picturesque little tavernas where you will relish local specialties. It is also the starting point if you want to visit Karthaia, following the historical footpath. Leaving Chora and travelling to the west, at 10 km, you will reach the plain of Poisses where you will find a beautiful and hospitable settlement with access to a magnificent long sandy beach, built on top of the ancient Piiessa.

Driving west of Chora you will find Koundouros, at 15 km from Ioulida, where the stone mills stand still capturing your gaze. There is also a cosmopolitan, well organized beach filled with restaurants and bars.


Kea’s beaches unequivocally go hand in hand with the distinct morphology of the island. From one side of the island to the other one can meet windless coves with deep blue waters rewarding those who wish to discover them. Kaliskia, Liparo, Spathi, Sykamia, Kalydonyhi are only some of those. For those visitors who can’t live without comfort, there are certainly various organized beaches equipped with deck chairs and umbrellas next to the settlements, for example Otzia, Koundouros, Pisses and Yaliskari.
