Things to do

Churches of Koufonisi:

Agios Georgios, Agios Nikolaos, and Profitis Ilias are especially worth seeing, as is the church of the Virgin Mary. Each church is named after a certain saint that is important to the village. The fishermen at work in their boats, which are called caiques, are also a signature sight of the island.

Agios Georgios:

The Church of Agios Georgios is named after the saint that is believed to protect the island. A feast is held every year during the Easter season. Local tradition dictates that one local resident passes the icon around to everyone gathered, and the streets are filled with rose leaves. This is only one of several religious celebrations.

Procession of St. George:

The events of the island of Koufonisi largely centre on the Greek Orthodox Church calendar, a formative part of Greek culture. The procession of St. George, known as Panigiras, is celebrated every year on 23 April. There are also additional celebrations at Easter and in mid-August, celebrating the prophet Elias.

Profitis Ilias:

On the 20th of July on Koufonisi, there is a large celebration in the name of the prophet Elijah. There is a similar festival on the 15th of August for the virgin Mary. Both of these festivals take place publically, with lots of celebration.

Pori Beach:

A popular tourist destination, Pori beach is a beautiful public beach with a direct bus line back to the main town. Space is fairly crowded in the late afternoon. The white sands of this beach make it particularly beautiful, and the close proximity to town is also worth noting.

Cafe Scholio:

Visit a favourite among both locals and tourists on Koufonisi, Cafe Scholio. Owned by locals Nena and Mimis, Cafe Scholio is a place where locals are encouraging to tourists. Situated at the end of the main road in Koufonisi, it is also ideally located.

Weather on Koufonisi

The Mediterranean climate is fairly mild year-round. Lows in the winter reach as low as 10°C and summer reaches close to 30°C. The wind cycle that effects the Aegean Sea every year is called the Etesians. This is mostly a worry to sailors, as these winds blow at dangerous speeds, and occur fairly suddenly.

Travel to Koufonisi

It is easiest to travel to Koufonisi with the Greek ferry system. Fly into Naxos Airport (JNX) and take the Blue Star ferry line to Koufonisi, depending on what other stops are planned. Both car-carrying and passenger ferries are available year-round, and operate more often in the high tourist season. Ferries arrive in the town of Koufonisia, and the road that follows the northeastern coast lead to the town of Finikas.

Cette maison se trouve à l'entrée de Chora, magnifique village, avec une situation geographique dans l'ile exceptionnelle.la vue donne sur le rocher Eleftherios et sa femme nous ont accueilli chaleureusement et se sont occupé de l'appartement pendant notre sejour. Si nous revenons à Chora, nous sejornerons de nouveau ici!

The flat is equipped with everything you need for a seaside vacation including sun-chairs, outdoor eating area even a deck of cards and a fishing pole. The back terrace looks out onto the beach which is reachable by foot in 2-3 mins where you will find Taverna Paradiso - an excellent restaurant with wifi, friendly service and amazing food. There is another Traverna Apolafsi just off the main road in the opposite direction. I highly suggest a rental car to explore the island but there is a local bus that runs a few times a day (I don't know how long it would take to get around as we rented a car). Overall the flat was perfect for our week in Naxox and I'm already dreaming about the next time I can return. Many, many thanks to the owners who made the space so comfortable and welcoming to visitors. The original photography on the walls is captivating and were the basis for many interesting conversations.
