The beach of Fykiada in Kythnos is located next to the famous beach of Kolonas, in the northwest part of the island, in the bay of Kolonas just before the homonymous beach. The access by car after the bay of Apokrousis is via a rather bad dirt road. Coming from Apokrousis bay on the dirt road, the beach of Fykiada looks tempting, but finally most of visitors choose the famous Kolona with its distinctive natural beauty.
The beach of Fykiada has turquoise waters with sandy seabed and algae alternating with sand. The beach is big and wide so you can enjoy your swim in a quiet environment, away from the crowds and boats of the nearby beach of Kolona.
At Fykiada beach there are only a few tamarix trees at one end and as it is not organized and you will not find sunbeds or umbrellas so it’s better to come prepared. Nonetheless if you want to refresh yourself there is a small bar in one end.
