Merihas (or Merichas) is the main port of Kythnos island, where ferries from Athens and other islands of Cyclades arrive. Since Merihas became the port of the island, it also developed a lot in tourism. Most Kythnos hotels and studios are actually found in the bay of Merihas, which is quite large in size. Many taverns and lounge bars are also found there.
There is a sandy beach in Merihas, while the nice beaches of Martinakia and Episkopi are in close distance. There are also buses from Merihas to Chora and other central spots of Kythnos island, while in summer there are boats to popular beaches around the island.
