Welcome to Koufonisia


It’s made up of three main islands, two of which, Kato Koufonisi and Keros, are uninhabited. The three cover a total of 26 sq km. You’ll arrive at the populated, low-lying Ano Koufonisi. It sees a flash-flood of tourism each summer season thanks to its superb beaches, good hotels and chic restaurants, and it welcomes a growing number of summer high-speed ferries from other Cycladic islands. The main street is a joy to wander along.

Still, the island retains its low-key charm, and a substantial fishing fleet sustains a thriving local community outside the fleeting summer season.

They were named Koufonisia [meaning Hollow islands] because of the existing huge caves which gave the impression to pirates who viewed them from a distance that the islands were hollow! At a short distance you will see the deserted Keros island. It has been designated as an archaeological site under protection, as major Cycladic Art finds have been unearthed there many a time.Out of the two islands, Pano Koufonisi is the only populated one. Koufonisia are a favourite destination for those who seek to relax on their holidays and look for sheltered golden sand beaches, small natural pools of turquoise waters, feasts in the original ‘island way’ and seafood fresh from the sea.Skhinoússa is located at the centre of the Small Eastern Cyclades island group, south of Náxos and north-east of Irakliá. It is a tiny island with three villages: Hóra, Messaria and Mersini.Rate includes:- Drinks: water & soft drinks - Snorkelling Kit, Umbrellas, Music, Wifi , Shower Water, Use of Bath, Beach towels, Waterproof mobile case , GoPro camera- Crew (Captain & Sailor)- VAT, Mooring Fees, Insurance- Fuel consumption up to 135 miles
