Welcome to the Koufonissia
In a few lines we will try to describe our island to you.
The islands belong in the group of Mikres Anatolikes Cyclades.
They comprise Pano Koufonissi, or Koufonissi plain as it is the only inhabited island in the group, Kato Koufonissi, while Glaronissi and Keros complete the picture.
Pano and Kato Koufonissi are separated by a narrow strait, a mere 200 metres wide. Geographically they are located southeast of Naxos and west of Amorgos.
Southwest of the Koufonissia is Schinoussa, and right after that is Iraklia. Around the larger islands there are also 14 islets which you can visit if you have your own boat.
Pano Koufonissi boasts a secure marina for tourist boats. Water and fuel supplies are provided, the latter by calling the island petrol station (00306977982701).
Regular boat services connect the Koufonissia with Piraeus, Amorgos and Naxos while thee is a daily service by the legendary Skopelitis connecting all the Mikres Cyclades, from Amorgos to Koufonissi, Schinoussa, Iraklia, Naxos and back again. Three time a week it also calls at Donoussa.
The island excursion boat has an hourly service to the beaches of both Pano and Kato Koufonissi. Sailing in all weathers it can also take you to Volakas, the nearest harbour on Naxos, a mere 20 minutes boat ride away, from where you can take a taxi to the town. They will also be happy to pick you up at Volakas, to bring you to Koufonissi, if you call the ship agency in advance to arrange it (00302285071438).
