Koufonisia, One of the most beautiful islands in the Cyclades accessible with our helicopters.
Koufonissia is a set of 2 islands that belong in Cyclades Group of the Greek islands. They were not a very famous destination until 1990. That is why the natural beauty is almost unaltered and their beauty is one of a kind. From 1990 and on, they have become the alternative Cycladic option for people that love crystal waters and nature and prefer a discrete more relaxed tourism.
As mentioned previously, the two islands that complete the set are Ano Koufonisi and Kato Koufonissi. Ano Koufonissi is the one with the most movement, since it is where hotels, restaurants, bars and landmarks are located. The most usual means of travel are foot and bikes since the island is significantly small. Kato Koufonissi is uninhabited and you can only reach it with a small boat trip from Ano Koufonisi. It is well known for campers, since free camping occurs in the summertime there.

Ano Koufonissia have Foinikas beach, Loutro beach, Pori beach and Italida beach and Kato Koufonissia have Detis beach, Nero Beach and Panagia beach. One can take a small boat and explore Kato Koufonissia in order to visit more remote and secluded beaches and also explore different amazing sea caves that the island has to offer.
There is not enough evidence to tell the early story of Koufonissia but according to a few excavations that were made, it has been inhabited from the prehistoric age. It was always a very hard spot to inhabit since pirates roamed these seas and were an eminent threat. Only after the 19th century where the Greek navy faced the piracy issues, then some inhabitants approached Koufonissia again.
