Consider Koufonisi for your next Greek holiday.

The island of Koufonisi is located on the far outer eastern edge of the Cyclades islands, between the islands of Naxos and Amorgos, and is a tiny but densely populated place. With several different beaches to enjoy, and with more bustling islands just a short ferry ride away, this seems like an ideal place for relaxation.

Alternatively, travellers can rent a holiday apartment on Koufonisi during their stay, sized for two, and a perfect location for a romantic getaway.

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.

A perfect getaway - secluded & stunning haven in the Aegean maintained to the highest standards

5 of 5
Thirteen of us from one large family stayed very comfortably in the two houses at Fanis’s property on a secluded hill top, a short (10 min) walk from town and beaches. The houses are kept immaculate - there is not a sign of wear anywhere. Plus the couple who come every day to service the houses are meticulous and discreet. It was very helpful to have the use of two vehicles to shuttle us about when hot or tired (or both). We employed the services of a chef from Athens called Tasos who was simply amazing - his help with all aspects of the catering (shopping, cooking, serving etc.) made our 14 nights even more relaxing and luxurious. The 2-part pool was very popular with all the children and adults. There are lots of chill out areas which can be enjoyed as a group or individually. The gardens are beautifully designed and maintained. We all got lots of sleep in air conditioned bedrooms and most of us benefited from en-suite. There is a strong breeze that blows across the island from time to time but this at least helped keep things cooler, and we got accustomed to it. Koufonissi is a small island and there are only a small number of beaches and services but we still found plenty to do over two weeks given that we took a very relaxed approach to every day! Would recommend this property without hesitation.

Emelia's House, Agia Anna

5 of 5
This is the second summer we have stayed at Emelia's House. We have had another fantastic, relaxing holiday. The House is so comfortable and only 20 metres from the beautiful beach of Agia Anna. It is centrally located for everything in Naxos. We are hoping to return again next year. Maria is a wonderful host and never fails to help with anything requested. Thank you again, The Joyce Family
