Kea: last stop before mainland Greece

Kythnos to Korissia, Kea 21NM

After leaving Ormos Kolona in Kythnos we made a short hop to a bay on the south west coast of Kea which looked to be a nice anchorage.

After one night there we decided it was a bit rolly and pushed on to the main town in Kea, Korrissia and tied up on the town quay. It’s nice once in a while to do this and enjoy the hustle and bustle of these little island towns. Watch the ferries come and go, explore the town, shops and tavernas and generally watch the world walk past your cockpit!

Small island towns are the best!

The shops are usually pretty limited and I trailed around a few places one afternoon trying to get a refill for one of our Camping Gas 907 cylinders to no avail. Still its nice just to be able to step off the boat and take a wander, and talk to the other yachties!
