Overview

Ormos Kavia, near Koundouros is a small bay approximately 1 mile east of Ak. Makropoundha. The picturesque windmills that dot the hillsides can easily be seen from the approach, as can a large building near the entrance. 

If you’re planning to spend a few days in Kea, there’s plenty to see and do. While picturesque coves and bays provide secluded anchorage and wonderful spots for swimming and sunbathing, there are plenty of opportunities to change the scenery!  Check out the vibrant ports, great beaches, fascinating cultural sites and wonderful hiking trails.

Navigation

As you approach, take care to avoid a reef approx. ¼ mile SSW of Makropoundha. It’s usually easy to see as waves break around it.

In the bay, there’s good holding on the east side, so anchor in there, at 3m-6m, rather than the west side.  It’s a good idea to use a trip line on the anchor as there have been reports of chains and old mooring blocks on the bottom.

Ormos Kavia bay provides good shelter from the Meltemi, and up to 20 yachts can anchor at any time.

General Information

There’s been a lot of new development in the area, with hotels, houses and other facilities being added.

The taverna and local stores can organize any provisions you may need, including gas bottles, ice, fuel, and virtually anything else you can think of.

Beaches

Koundouraki Beach

A great place to spend the day with plenty of water sports and lots of ways to enjoy the sun. Huge blue bean bags are an added attraction to help you chill as you enjoy a refreshing ice-cold drink.

Pisses Beach

This long sandy beach is flanked by brilliant green hillsides. Sunbeds and umbrellas can be hired. Not crowded except for weekends and the summer peak, this family-friendly beach is perfect for swimming and snorkelling most of the time. The water does get rougher during the Meltemi, though, at which point it’s a natural magnet for surfers.

Places of Interest

Lion of Kea

A must-visit when you come to Kea! This huge stone lion, carved out of the rock itself, dates back to the prehistoric period. Unlike some of the other ruins on Kea, it’s only a short easy walk from Ioulis. This mysterious ancient sculpture has inspired many of the island legend’s and customs. Today, it inspires many Instagram photographers to share its majesty and beauty with the world.

Archeologiko Mouseio Keas

Located near the Ioulis Castle, this museum displays fascinating artefacts from the excavations on the island, including those from spectacular Ancient Karthea and the prehistoric village of Agia Irini.
