Across Ano Koufonisi, at 200m., there is an old settlement which although abandoned, is distinctive and utterly tranquil. An “untouched” landscape. Its natural beauty, unspoiled beaches and vaulted caves have nothing to envy of the Caribbean or its colours. It’s easily visited day after day by local caïque that transfers people throughout the day. It’s worth visiting the church dedicated to Panagia (Mary, mother of Jesus) and after that, try some delectable traditional flavours from the charming taverna on the island open during summer months. Kato Koufonisi offers a unique experience of absolute freedom. It’s a one-of-a-kind place with an unusual combination of luxury yachts dropping anchor at the beaches and lovers of alternative tourism setting up tents along its coastline.
