Nero Beach Koufonisia: From Koufonisia you can take a boat to the island of Kato, which is basically Lower Koufonisia. You can get all information pertinent to boat timings etc prominently displayed at the dock from where you can embark the boat.
Nero is the destination for all tourists who board this boat. Nero is a small but attractive beach that is at Kato. Be prepared for crowds and ensure that you carry all your personal requirements including water.
The trip itself is also very nice and the beach makes a nice change from the one on Koufonisia. You will need shoes because this is a beach that has sand and stones, so walking barefoot may be an uncomfortable prospect as the stones become hot in the sun.
One can indulge in some stone collecting on this beach as the stones are pretty and very unique in their colors. One can do the trip in a day or even a few hours as the sun gets quite strong, so it can get a little uncomfortable. The journey depends on whether you are able to get place on the boat or not and it is the same for the return trip.
The Cycladic islands have a different charm and vibe. Even if it is difficult to visit all of them during your holiday, there are some that you don`t want to miss. Koufonissia is one of them and it is also the final destination of this cruise that is giving you the full experience of sailing on an 18-meter long wooden boat.
On your way to those islands, you will make the first stop at the uninhabited island of Kato Koufonissi. Don`t forget to take your snorkeling gear with you because here you will have the chance to see the beautiful underwater life of the Aegean Sea. In the meantime, the crew will prepare the BBQ lunch and you will be able to enjoy delicious traditional souvlaki cooked right on the boat. After this, the captain will take you to Ano Koufonissi Island where you will have three hours of free time to explore and discover the main village, take a swim and relax. On your way back to Naxos, enjoy a glass of wine on board and admire the wild beauty of Cycladic nature. After almost 10 hours, the tour will end and you will arrive safely back home with a lot of beautiful memories and photos.
