Kea also known as Gia or Tzia, is a Greek island in the Cyclades archipelago in the Aegean Sea. Its capital, Ioulis, is inland at a high altitude (like most ancient Cycladic settlements, for fear of pirates) and is considered quite picturesque. Other major villages of Kea are the port of Korissia and the fishing village of Vourkari. After suffering depopulation for many decades, Kea has been recently rediscovered by Athenians as a convenient destination for weekend and yachting trips. The island is famous for scuba diving, with excellent visibility, rich marine life, and wall, cavern and wreck diving. The water temperature ranges from 20°-26°C. The highlight for recreational divers is the wreck of the unique paddle/wheeler steamship Patris which sank in 1868 and the world-famous wreck of the HMHS Britannic, sister ship of the Titanic
