Diakofti, the earthly paradise of Kythera

Kythera is a rare beauty destination worth visiting. But the first thing you meet when you reach the port of the island is the magical Diakofti. The settlement is a small fishing village with an exotic beach of turquoise waters and white sand.

What will impress you in Diakofti is the shipwreck that dominates the area in the middle of the Aegean Sea, just outside the settlement. Due to its location, the bow of the ship sticks out from the water and has become a tourist attraction. As a result, it has become a trademark of the island. It’ll attract you to come closer and to travel back to time and history.

And that’s generally the case on the island. It gives you the feeling that you want to explore everything. And why wouldn’t you? The beautiful places are your ally and the hospitable residents will help you with everything.
