Koufonisia One-day Trip

the magic of the cyclades

We start our day by crossing the channel between Paros and Naxos, after about 1,5 hours we make our first stop at a picturesque bay on the southern coast of Naxos Island. Time for our first dip into the blue water under the tiny chapel of Agios Sostis.
The further route depends on wind conditions, but we will make sure to choose the best places to stop, swim and snorkel. If we are lucky we will also see dolphins. Snorkelling equipment is available on the board.

Around noon, we drop the anchor and Captain Yiannis prepares a few “mezedes” and lights up the BBQ, and offers a glass of ouzo, wine and refreshments.

The coastline of the Small Cyclades, especially that of Koufonisia Islands (Epano & Kato Koufonisi), is fantastic. Amazing rock formations and crystal clear waters from green-turquoise to deep blue colours.

In the beautiful light of the sunset, we sail back to Piso Livadi, after a day full of unique impressions and good atmosphere.”
