Introducing Kea (Tzia)
Kea (kay-a), though naturally beautiful with craggy cliffs, spectacular coastline and fecund hillsides, has been overrun by vacation homes. Being the island closest to Attica, it's just too easy to reach. Rent wheels to get off the beaten path and find its charms: rocky spires, verdant valleys filled with orchards, olive groves and almond and oak trees, farmers loading donkeys with water from wells. The main settlements are the port of Korissia and the attractive capital, Ioulida, about 5km inland. Local people call the island Tzia.
