Are you ready to awaken your senses and visit Koufonissia which are famous for their exotic charm? Our Koufonissia Day Trip will let you explore the two isles which have been inhabited since prehistoric times and were centers of the Cycladic Civilazation. The two isles, Ano and Kato Koufonissi are part of the Natura 2000 Network of natural habitats and feature a varied coastline of soft limestone that has been eroded by the sea and the rain, making impressive geological formations.
Make sure you head to the northeastern tip of Ano Koufonissi which is north of Pori beach in the area of Xylobatis. Here you will find the two famous caves of Xylobatis which are tucked away in a cove. Another natural sight worth visiting is the Mati tou Diavolou (Devil’s Eye) which is a rocky cave with a huge hole that allows for the waves to pass through.
Ano Koufonissi is relatively small and can be walked around in just a few hours. Agios Georgios or Chora is the island’s only official settlement, a typical Cycladic fishing village with whitewashed houses and picturesque passages around the port. If you find yourself on the island during the full-moon, you are guaranteed to witness another unique experience, a view of the crest of the neighbouring Keros, which, under the moonlight resembles a couple lying down.
A visit to Koufonissi by helicopter will guarantee a once in a lifetime experience for you and your loved ones. Our travel advisors will be happy to assist you with all the details of the trip.
