Great pity that in a structure the size and scope of ship like the Blue star Paros that credit cards are not accepted on board! We were almost out of money, the ATM was out of service and it was activated just 1 hour before arrival so 2 stars for this. The rest all ok though and despite the rough sea we did not feel in the least bit unsettled, unlike the hydrofoils that makes you vomit out your soul in the event of rough seas.

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 Schinoussa is a small and remote island that lies in the Aegean Sea. It is located to the south of the island of Naxos and is part of the Small Cyclades group of islands, along with Koufonissia, Donoussa and Iraklia. The island's terrain is made up of a wild landscape and isolated beaches which are perfect for visitors seeking privacy, peace and tranquillity. The island does not have a wide range of tourist facilities but what it does have seems to be sufficient for the visitors it receives.
The island is easily accessible from Naxos which makes it the perfect destination for a day trip. A popular site on the island is the Church of Panagia Akathi in Chora, which is the island's most important church, and is considered the protector of the island. It's architecture is of typical Cycladic design, painted blue and white, and stands in the middle of the village.
