The Archaeological Museum of Kea is located in the entrance of Ioulida village near the central square. The building was constructed in 1970 and hosts findings from excavations in the island. Mainly, there are findings from four ancient towns of Kea: Ioulis, Karthea, Korissia and Poiessa. The collections are separated in two categories, the pre-historic collection and the Historic collection where visitors can see parts of the ancient temple of Athena and of the pediment with scenes from the fight of Amazons. There are, also, marble statues, ceramic artifacts, ancient coins and columns.

Gialiskari is a small beach on the north-west coast of Kea and is the most popular among the locals living in Ioulida, the capital of the island. In spite of its size, during the high season this beach counts on an extra attraction, a cafe bar that provides great views of the beach, to the point that one feels as being enjoying a drink or a meal in the middle of the beach.
