A blue paradise in the heart of the Aegean.
The Happiness Retreat - Koufonisi


Koufonisi (meaning hollow island) was given the name as the huge caves convinced the pirates that the island was hollow when observed from the sea.

It is one of the smallest of the Cyclades inhabited islands (400 residents), thus the natural beauty and its traditional color remains unfaded. You can walk around the island in 1h, passing Pori, Finikas, Italida, Spilia and Ammos beaches. You’d think cars are non-existent as most people walk or cycle the island. A peaceful place for complete relaxation.

The highlight of the island is Pori beach, with golden sand, turquoise clear shallow waters and emblematic large caves that can be found next to it.
