The Greek island of Koufonisia is located in the Cyclades group of islands and forms part of the municipality of Naxos and Lesser Cyclades. The island lies to the south east of the island of Naxos and to the west of the island of Amorgos. Koufonisia is actually made up of three different islands: Kato (Lower) and Pano (Upper) Koufonisi and Keros which is uninhabited and is a protected archaeological site. Artefacts found on Keros during the 20th century include a large number of Cycladic pieces of art. Also uninhabited is Kato Koufonisia which is next to Pano Koufonisia, Shoinousa and Keros. Pano Koufonisi is the smallest and most densely populated island of the Cycladic island group. The small church of Panagia which has been built on a jetty above ancient ruins is perhaps the most popular sight on the island. The island's port is mainly used by tourist boats and fishing vessels. Visitors to the island are greeted by a white windmill which is located on the east side of the port. The main town on the island is Chora which is on the south west coast of the island and has many houses of typical Cycladic architecture.
The Greek island of Serifos lies in the Aegean Sea and is one of the Cyclades group of islands. It is a popular island with tourists for a relaxing vacation and is characterised by its tradition whitewashed villages, pretty harbours, golden beaches and lovely landscapes. Compared to some other Greek islands, Serifos does not attract particularly high numbers of tourists which means that it has managed to retain some of its authentic Greek atmosphere. Visitors to the island have the choice of lazing on one of its 72 beaches or alternatively they can go cycling or hiking on one of the seven trails on the island. There is also a World War II shipwreck which is popular with scuba divers and a 16th century fortress-like Monastery of Taxiarches. The most picturesque spot on the island is the village of Chora and has been built on the slopes of a mountain that offers locals and visitors lovely views of the Aegean Sea. The most visited places on the island are the towns of Livadi and Livadakia.
The island is accessed by conventional and high speed ferries. During the summer months, there are ferries that connect Serifos with other nearby islands, such as Sifnos, Naxos, Paros, Santorini and Kythnos.
