General Information

The picturesque village of Episkopi is a small settlement in Kythnos. It is notable for the hills lying on both sides, making it almost seem enclosed. A few houses sit on the hills south of the beach, looking down at the beach. On the northern edge are also a few homes. Behind the beach are orchards and farms that provide food for the people around. Perched near the coastline are some boarding facilities for tourists and travellers. The architecture here is much like it is all over the Cycladic island, with beautiful white houses portraying the Greek colours.

Hikers will love the dirt path from Dryopida through Petrovouni, which reaches a staggering height of 211m and down again to Episkopi.
