Koufonisia’s only settlement spreads out behind the ferry quay. The older part of town, the Hora, sprawls along a low hill above the harbour, parallel to the coast, and is one long whitewashed main street lined with restaurants and cafes.
At the western end of the main street, you'll reach Loutro, with a stony cove, small boatyard, windmill and whitewashed church.
There are plenty of options here, though many don't open up until mid-May or even the start of June. Book early for July and August.
There are a good number of taverna and cafes, though many don't open up until mid-May or even the start of June. The bakery, on the road heading inland at the port end of the town beach, is the place for coffee. There's a supermarket directly above the port and one along the road leading inland from the beach.
