Hidden in the cavity of a ravine, invisible from the sea and protected from the winds, Dryopida has one original aspect compared to all the other settlements of the Cyclades: all its houses have tile roofs, a fact that is due to the craft of ceramics, which flourished on the island and was preserved until the previous decade.

This was not a separate settlement in the past. It served the needs of the island's fishermen, who had sheds and shipyards there. Ever since it became a port where large passenger ships dock, it has turned into a summer holiday resort. Apart from the port, Merihas has now also a marina for yachts, sailboats, and inflatable boats. This is the starting point of the bus service of Kythnos (Chora – Loutra and Dryopida – Kanala) as well. There is also a taxi rank and car or motorcycle rental offices here.

This settlement is located on the northeastern side of the island stretching along the bays of Loutra, Agia Irini, Schinari, and Maroulas. This is the settlement that most tourists prefer, due to its many restaurants and lodging facilities. The area is also famous for its hot springs. In fact, this is the reason why Kythnos used to be known as Thermia. Loutra is the only area of the Cyclades, besides Santorini and its active volcano, where this geothermal phenomenon occurs. The healing waters spring from two different points: the spring of Agioi Anargyroi inside the hydrotherapy centre that has been famous since the 19th century, and the spring of Kakavos, which is only 50m away from there.
