Arriving in Koufonisia

“We arrive at the port of Koufonissi within a few minutes”, is announced by the loudspeakers of the boat. You take a glimpse out of the window and you see those amazing rocks popping through the water at Lower Koufonissi. Outstanding colors, with intense alternations. You reach the harbor in a rush. As you go ashore you behold the blue waters of “Ammos” beach. You’re dazzled by the relaxing vibe but you have not seen anything yet… It is certainly not by chance that those who visit Koufonisia once, choose this destination every year after. Welcome to the Aegean island, where nature’s colors will leave you stunned.

Seawater delights

Blue waters overlooking Keros and Amorgos in the background. Pori, the most renowned beach in Koufonisia on the northeast of the island. Right behind, you will find the caves of Xylombatis. Dive bravely and swim through the caves with the pale ochre color. While crossing the caves, the colors will surely make you feel the ultimate relaxation. Not far from Pori, you will find the small “Gala” Beach, well hidden beneath a rock.

Cycladic cuisine

After a relaxing day at Koufonisi, what you need is a good meal. Walking through the alleys during the evening stroll, you find yourself wondering which tavern to dine at. The 13 taverns of the island, each with its very own style of the island, await you to taste a Greek salad with “xinomyzithra” cheese, fresh fish and, of course, the famous Lobster Pasta that will certainly leave a mark on you and your clothes.

Evening drink

A good day ends with a good drink. Either a relaxing one while overlooking the sea and the moonlit Kero, or with “rakomelo” in the centre of the island, while watching people passing by and getting to know those sitting next to you. Wherever you find yourself, it is certain that the faces around you will look familiar since  you will have probably met them before, at the beach or elsewhere on the island.
