We are planning 4-6 days on kythnos after a few days in athens, need answers to the following please!
is it easy enough (and cheap enough) to self cater on the island? are there little local food stores (not cafes.restaurants) that you can buy bread meat fruit etc? Should we bring food over on the ferry for the first night? what are the opening times of little supermarkets..if there are any?
Considering staying at either loutras or merihas, which is better for food shops? hoping to do only one biggish shop for our stay and eat out in the evenings 50% of the time.
planning on getting around the island on a bicycle brought over on the ferry from athens, anywhere to rent a bicycle on the island? what are the roads/terrain like? do you need to be super fit? considering May as the time to go so wont be peak summer heat.
has anyone stayed at ioannas apartment or kontseta apartments?
how easy is it to get around/across the island on foot/bike/bus?
anyone done any of the dive sites? and any big pelagics boat trips dolphins/whales etc?
help much appreciated..not going until next year but feel pretty clueless at the moment!
