Kythera in March/April

submitted by Chrysanthe Kyprios on 18.01.2024


I am hoping to get some help from Kytherians.

 My daughter has never been to Kythera which was the  birthplace of her grandfather, Constantine Kyprios.  We have an opportunity to go at the end of March and first week of April.  People, including a few accommodation owners, have told us it is too quiet, too cold, too rainy so don't go in this time frame.

Are there any cafes or businesses open during this period or is everything closed.  We were hoping maybe one cafe here and there?  We don't expect beach conditions but were hoping for some hiking and to visit the villages and to show her my father's house in Karavas.  
If it doesn't show the island in it's true glory we can wait and go later - but she is a little impatient and very excited to finally see Kythera.

Thank you in advance,

Chrysanthe Flavell (Kyprios/Cypros)

Hi Chrysanthe, thanks for your entry. Kythera is WONDERFULL all times of year. March and April, weather-wise, are a complete lottery. it could be 20ºC, or 10. If I had to give you an estimate, I'd say 4 sunny days a week and three overcast. It's easy to find accommodation at that time of year (especially compared to the high season), and there are still at least 5 or 6 restaurants open (one in Karavas). If you look for me on facebook - JamesPrineasKythera - you can see the pictures I've posted of the weather and more.
