Great taverna on the beach but be careful of the sudden waves that come in and soak you on your towel if you're not watching. The local authority does not allow any beach beds or umbrellas on Koufonisi so it's towel on sand time!

Cafe has sunbeds and the beach is a good size with some trees for shade. Water is good here as elsewhere with a gradual slope so suitable for everyone. Beach ferry docks in between Fanos and Italida beach and you can walk along the sand...More

A simple walk from town and you're there - or go by sea-taxi. This was our favourite beach on Koufonisi, with nice sand, clear sea, reasonable shelter and an efficiently run taverna. A mixture of couples and families.

I was dreaming of Koufonissi for months and when I finally got there, I wasn't disappointed. Stunning island with one beach better than the other. Which brings me to Fanos beach. For some reason it was my favourite one. Stunning clear water, sand, good cafe...More

I was visit Koufonisi island on July 2018. This island is a heaven on earth. There are no many cars and motorcycles. In contrast, it is a bicycle friendly island. I suggest it without a doubt!

A bit busy beach with fine sand. I definitely prefer its further part with picturesque shelf, suitable for snorkeling and swimming to near small water caves.

Small very but very clean and when we went in September very quiet. It's about a 30 minute slow walk from the village but in the, season there is a water taxi if you don't want to walk.

I loved Pori beach but it was windy most of the times. So I tried Fanos beach. Same clear sky blue waters, sandy, just next to the popular Italida beach, nice beach bar with music drinks and snacks. The best option for windy days

This is very popular. In high season there will not be much room. You can combine this beach with visiting Italida beach as they are close to each other. You can get some shade at the back of the beach from the wall/trees. There are...More
