KORISSIA (Village) KEA
Before leaving Korissia for the island's inner country, a visit to Xyla is a must. The landscape is rough and barren. The solitary atmosphere, combined with the crystal clear sea, is rarely found elsewhere. Everything here is natural and unspoiled, inviting one to dive deep into the limpid sea.
GIALISKARI (Settlement) KEA
At 1 km from Korissia, one is pleasantly surprised by a small sandy beach known as "Gialiskari", screened by eucalyptus and salt trees ("armyrikia") which literally overshadow the road by their sheer height and thick foliage. Today, this is the favourite beach of the residents of Chora (Ioulis) for their daily summer swim.
OTZIAS (Settlement) KEA
On the northern part of the island, 5 km from Korissia, we find the green coast of Otzias, lined with salt trees which in places form veritable forests, and afford a shelter from the burning sand. The sandy beach of Otzias extends for about 700 meters to the far eastern end of the bay, where a small village stands, built on the rocks behind the picturesque chapel of Agios Sostis.
