Overview

Situated to the southeast of its more illustrious neighbour Naxos, Koufonissia is two islands separated by a 200 metre straight. The upper, low, flat, populated island is one of the smallest islands in the Cyclades with an area of just 3.5 square kms. and a population of 284. In spite of its diminutive size, Koufonissia is becoming quite a trendy place to visit by virtue of its high quality beaches and cosy island atmosphere.

With the largest fleet in Greece in direct proportion to the population, fishing is the main, year round occupation on the island. Testimony to its growing popularity, Koufonissia does have many restaurants, tavernas and cafes together with some local art shops and a post office. We found the meals in the local hostelries to be of a high standard with fish in plentiful supply courtesy of the home fleet.

There is no possibility of car or bike hire as the only asphalted roads are in and around the village. Anyhow, the island is small enough to walk around in one morning. Beaches are the big plus on Koufonissia. There are 4 really superb stretches of sand within a thirty minute walk of the village.
