Koufonisia are the virgin Greek islands known for their caves, turquoise waters and golden rocks. Koufonisia is a group of 2 islands: Ano Koufonissi and Kato Koufonissi. These two islands are the closest to paradise you’ll ever get! They are also very different from each other. While Ano Koufonissi is where the center of the islands’ activity is, meaning restaurants, bars and sights, Kato Koufonisi is uninhabited and can only be reached by boat from Ano Koufonissi.
The scenery in Koufonisia is beyond words! Unreal turquoise water, glittering sand, laid-back atmosphere, and Cycladic architecture create a true wonder amid Cyclades archipelago.
Due to its small size and the limited tourist development, activities there are restricted mainly to swimming and walking. Swimming is actually the only thing to do. The beaches in Koufonisia are not organized and provide great chances for total privacy (especially in Kato Koufonisi). Many of them are naturist beaches. One of the most famous beaches is Gala (Milk) which is a small pebbled beach, like an open cave which connects to the sea through a narrow opening. Another beach is Pori, a gorgeous place with soft sand and crystal water. Last but not least is Glaronisi, which means “the seagulls’ island”, is extremely small, flat, uninhabited and nearly barren, but its private little beaches and stunning rock formations are definitely unique.
