Abramis Rooms in Kythira is a cute little neighbourhood of lovely suites
The Best Hotels in Kythira are primarily located in Kythira Town (the capital of the island) or at Avlemonas, Livadi and Agia Pelagia. Kythira is truly a very unique island as it’s located where no other islands are around, south of Peloponnese but it’s full of history and it has a very unique landscape. Kythira is ideal for families and couples who want to explore an island that has so much to offer but I have to say that the hotels on the island are on the smaller size (which is not a bad thing).

BUT ALSO CHECK:
Kythira doesn’t belong to any of the well-known greek islands groups but administratively belongs to Attica (Athens region), which is a complete anomaly in my opinion, but anyway… It has an extremely rough terrain that has also been shaped by the strong winds of the area. The island probably has one of the most prominent Venetian castles in Greece that was built in the 1200s and it’s a must-see while you are there.
Kythira island is quite far from Athens, and you can reach it by taking a ferry from the town of Neapoli in south Peloponnese (it takes 1.5 hours ) or by a ferry from the town of Gytheio (it takes 3 hours) or alternatively (and much easier), just take a direct 45-minute flight from Athens. Thankfully the island has an airport for domestic flights only from (and to) Athens that could also operate only between May and October for the summer high season (always check Ferryhopper for the latest ferry schedules and Expedia for the most up-to-date flights to Greek islands).
You definitely need a car in Kythira and most probably a 4×4 if you want to reach some of the beaches and there is a lot of them in some very rough terrains. There are local buses on the island but they won’t take you anywhere and they are not that frequent.
