This is the Eternal Blue in Kythnos which is ideal for a quick getaway, as it’s only a 2-hour ferry from Athens
The Best Hotels in Kythnos (or Kithnos) are mostly located in the island’s capital call Kithnos Chora or at the port town called Merichas. Kithnos is an island very close to Athens and it’s perfect if you really don’t want to spend much time and money on ferries. The island is currently living its renaissance with lots of new hotels and fancy boutique villas popping up every year along with some really good (and expensive…) restaurants from famous Greek chefs.

BUT ALSO CHECK:
Kythnos belongs to the Cyclades group of islands in the Aegean Sea, and it’s your typical greek Cycladic island with its small size and white-washed capital town nested up on the rough hills in the middle of the island. You won’t find big all-inclusive resorts with massive swimming pools on Kithnos but mostly small boutique aparthotels and villas that are run by lovely hosts.
Kythnos island is very close to Athens, and you can reach it by ferry from Piraeus or preferably Rafina port (it takes less than 2 hours). There is no airport on Kithnos Island, and there is no need for it to be hoenst (always check Ferryhopper for the latest ferry schedules and Expedia for the most up-to-date flights to Greek islands).
I suggest you rent a car in Kythnos, as it’s a relatively small island but with lots of areas and beaches to see and discover. There are local buses, but you’ll obviously be more flexible if you rent a car, in my opinion.
