Upper Koufonisi – Lower Koufonisi – Keros

The Koufonisia consist of a paradise like group of islands in the small eastern Cyclades southeast of Naxos and Amorgos.

They consist of upper Koufonisi, lower Koufonisi, and mysterious Keros in between them separated by a narrow passage of some 200m with several rocky islet outcrops in between. They all fall under the jurisdiction of Naxos.

The calm landscape magical golden sandy beaches with crystalline turquoise waters natural jetties and sea caves complimented by great fresh fish and the friendliness of the inhabitants make these islands a veritable paradise for summer vacationers to escape to...

The climate is mild even in winter and cool in the summer with a bright sun and the characteristic summer northern winds called Meltemia.
