Koufonisia Gay Guide

A guide to help you find the best hotels & places in Koufonisia for Gay travellers


Gay Guide for Koufonisia | Everything you need to know about the gay-friendly atmosphere in Koufonisia!

Koufonisia is a collaboration of 3 small islands, Upper Koufonisia, Lower Koufonisia and Keros. All three islands are heaven-like and exotic but only the Upper Koufonisi is inhabited while the other two are endowed with beautiful secluded beaches and unspoiled nature.

As it is expected, the gay scene there is totally unorganised and the only place for you and your partner to enjoy yourselves are the secluded beaches. But do not be disappointed as these exotic beaches with sandy shores are more than anyone can ask.

In Upper Koufonisi, beaches like Finikas, Italida, Pori and of course Gala are the ''hidden'' treasures of Koufonisia and the whole Greece. Magnificent coastlines ideal for an escape from the usual everyday routine. 

These three islands are excellent for island hopping. Everything is within walking distance and the islands are situated in a way that a boat ride can reach all three and satisfy any explorer. Be prepared by renting a camping equipment and station at some of the many secluded shores to appreciate the beautiful starry sky.
