Εlafonisi – Balos Chania Crete
KOUFONISIA …. the unspoiled Cycladic summer paradise.
Two small islands,with unique exotic turquoise beaches. Koufonissi is the smallest inhabited island of the Cyclades and you will certainly not need a car to enjoy it, as cars are not necessary on an island measuring 3.5 km from one end to another. All beaches on Koufonisia are easily accessed by foot as all distances are short. The longest walking distance, from Hora to Pori, takes roughly 40 minutes to cover. Small boats offer transport to the beaches every day, from morning to sunset, a municipal bus provides free rides from the town to Pori, and a van covers the short distance between the town and Finikas beach. Very popular island for runners and trekkers.
