Koufonisia is a small group of two islets, east of Naxos and west of Amorgos; These are Pano Koufonisi and Kato Koufonisi, and are separated by a narrow 200 meters in length. Both were named Koufonisia (that is to say, hollow islands) because of the enormous existing cavities that surely the pirates who saw them in the distance thought that the islands had holes. At a short distance, you will see that the island of Keros is deserted, as it has been designated as an archaeological site under protection, as well as the major art discoveries of the Cycladic Islands that have been discovered.
When you arrive, the white windmill that is situated at the entrance of the harbor will welcome you. Chora is more upstream: a typical village of the Cyclades, with whitewashed houses and picturesque alleys. In the center, you will see the church of Agios Georgios, patron of the island. You can rent a bicycle and walk the island along the waterfront. Do not hesitate to visit the interior area and walk along the paths from Chora to Pano Meria.
