We went to 5 islands on our honeymoon, and Koufonisia was our favorite- by far. The Greek-Italian-American family that run this B and B are so much fun! They picked us up and waited (even though our ferry was late), we even caught a ride with them to majestic Pori beach! They introduced us to the top taverna chill-out spot on the planet- careful there are two- this is the one on the left- when your back is to the beach. This island has incredible beaches to discover- the water is perfect! The island is walkable, has many terrific restaurants, cool late-night bars...paradise. The owner says its like the "Jamaica of the Greek Isles"- but without all that touristy-crap! The hotel itself is fairly priced and the spotless LARGE well-appointed airy rooms are fresh and relaxing. The staff are super friendly and welcoming as well, and the breakfast on the terrace outside with the singing birds is a great way to start yet another perfect-weather Greek Isle dream day. I can't stop staring at our photos and hoping for a speedy return! When planning a trip to the islands, do include this stay!!
