Koufonisia is a place where time stands still. The beauty of the landscape is enough to take your heart away. Just blue as far as the eye can see, in all its shades – From turquoise to azure, cobalt blue and transparent, the water is purely mesmerizing. And how do you reach this Heaven on Earth? How can you get to Koufonisia? Well, although it may not seem like it, there are many different options for you to choose from.
In case you have not noticed, this is a small sliver of Paradise we are talking about. This means that there are no airports here to check for low cost flights and charters. So your safest bet is to get on board a ship or ferry. If you are traveling to Athens, there are many super fast ferries leaving the port of Piraeus. They all head to Koufonisia, after stopping to Paros, Naxos, Mykonos and the lot. As a result, you may indulge in island hopping and discover several destinations at once.
In case you choose to visit Naxos or Mykonos first, you have a second option. There are daily boats taking you to Koufonisia from either one of these islands. So you can schedule a day cruise to the island’s most beautiful beaches. Then, you may stroll up and down the paved roads and enjoy a lovely meal on the seafront. The landscapes in Koufonisia are stunning and you should take in as much as possible.
Of course, you may select Koufonisia as the main course of your holidays. In that case, beware of the itineraries with the ferries departing from Piraeus and Koufonisia. You do not want to end up without accommodation options on the island…nor do you wish to risk losing your connecting flight from Athens International Airport El. Venizelos!
