Sunset in Pano KoufonissiThe two islands, Pano Koufonissi and Kato Koufonissi lie next to each other and are separated by a narrow channel of about 200m.

Kato Koufonissi (at the southwest of Pano Koufonissi), is nowadays uninhabitted, except for some small farm cottages whose owners stay there mainly during summer in order to guard their stock. This uninhabitted island is an attraction pole to sailing boat and yacht owners during summer.

Both islands are famous for their exotic beaches and gather many fans each year, especially during July and August whe they become particularly crowded. Best time to visit is during the low and middle seasons, from middle May till the end of June and from middle September till the first days of October.
