The fabulous beaches are Koufonissi's biggest attractiveness
and arguably the main reason why more and more people come here. The
beaches are not only beautiful, they are extremely child friendly
too: fine golden sand, sandy bottom soft like velvet and completely
free of seaweed, add that it is shallow and you have the perfect mix.
The beaches are gathered on a string of beads along the southern
and eastern coast. The entire coastline from Chora to the lagoon
of Pori is lined with sandy beaches, smaller beach pockets and
little lagoons. Some of them are so small that there is only room for
a few people. There is generally a shortage of shade and there
are no sun beds or umbrellas for rent.
A rule of thumb is that the beaches get better the further away
you go, another rule of thumb is that the farther away from Finikas
you go the more nudists you meet. The beaches of Koufonissi is
not only a paradise for children, they are also a paradise for nudists.
