Aujourd’hui, ce sera Kythnos. Petite ile moins touristique. En arrivant, nous sommes toutefois surpris de voir le port déjà bien rempli. Le maitre de port déplace légèrement quelques bateaux, voila votre place ! Une petite plage est située tout juste à coté; les jeunes de se font pas prier pour y aller. Seul Vincent préfère les surveiller bien au sec. De cette ile, volcan encore actif, s’écoule des sources d’eau chaude. Un petit bassin a été aménagé pour les retenir. On peut donc se baigner dans un spa en pleine mer Égée.... read more

We swam to shore where there was a small cave you could swim into, the acoustics were amazing! We also climbed a bit up the rockface (Matt further than me) and looked out over the ocean. Matt and I explored along the beach line further which was quite rocky and we discovered a shallow hot spring. I hopped in and a local told me it was 38 degrees! It was like an ancient spa. I lay in it for a good twenty minutes and then we eventually swam back to the boat for some lunch. In the afternoon ... read more
