Escape to turquoise paradise

Koufonissi is the closest island to Amorgos, about an hour, and has a special and let’s say a somewhat exotic experience in store for you.

Of course, I’m talking about the many amazing beaches with turquoise waters and golden sand that have made it so popular.

In Koufonissi you can travel like in the other small Cyclades with Blue Star Ferries or the Express Skopelitis.

I always choose our local ferry because I love the experience of traveling with the islanders who all become a friendly group in the deck.

 I usually go on day trips to Koufonissi, but whenever I can I prefer to stay for 1-2 nights.

And this is because I like having a good time now and then! I love the comfort, the good food and the wonderful bars by the sea.

The island’s terrain is so flat that you can walk all day long without feeling tired in the slightest.

But then again, why walk when there are those endless sandy beaches where you can lie down!

My favorite pastime in Koufonissi is cycling.

And what better way than to rent a bike and become acquainted with all the beaches, Finikas, Fanos, Italida.

And of course end up in the famous Pori, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Cyclades.

In the evening, there are so many options for food and so many more for drink.

Unfortunately not for dancing though, since I’ve not been in shape for the last 20 years…

Koufonisi is the perfect place for those of you who love the good life, relaxing on the beach and having an appetite for fun.

This island might be small but it has such a positive vibe that it can speak to anyone.
