Overview

On the northwestern end of the Kythnos island is the stunning seaside resort of Episkopi. This small bay provides a haven for travellers to swim in the pure waters of the Aegean Sea. That is why Episkopi beach is one of the Blue Flag beaches in Greece.

With a population of less than 20, this seaside hamlet consists of holiday homes of locals and tourists. Found very close to the Merihas port, one can enjoy the quiet beauty of Episkopi and the livelivess of Merihas.

Navigation

By road, Episkopi is located just 2 km away at the Merichas harbour and takes approximately five minutes by bus or car.  Chora is 5 km away, and the drive lasts about 13 minutes, while Dryopida, which is 7.5 km away, takes about 20 minutes.  Using a ferry or sea taxi from the nearby port of Merichas, Chora and is also possible. The walk from Merichas takes about 40 minutes. However, it is a fantastic way to see the island and its historical monuments.

Where to Anchor

The bay of Episkopi is about 10 meters in depth. One should expect dangerous winds from the west and swells from the northwest. Mooring is at the small pier on the southern part of the beach.

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.

Beaches

Episkopi Beach

This small but impressive beach is a sight for tired eyes. The shallow and clear waters of the bay are inviting for any swimmer, experienced or not. The 500 meter stretch of white sand and clear blue water kissing the shore is truly a sight to behold. The shallow waters invite children to swim safely, and families can have fun playing at the beach.

It is ideal for families and travelers of all ages looking for quiet but beautiful spots to relax. At the beach is a bar that offers drinks and snacks and sunbeds with umbrellas to complete the experience.
