Kea belongs to the Cyclades group of islands. Also referred to as Tzia in everyday Greek, the Island of Kea is a one-hour boat ride from the Province of Attica. Athens is the capital, not only of Greece, but also the capital of the Province of Attica. Kea is conveniently located, cosmopolitan and relaxed at the same time. Many Athenians have summer homes there, because of its proximity to Athens. An ideal island destination for a short weekend jaunt on a yacht. Kea is a blend of craggy coastline and rolling hills.
