Kato (Lower) Koufonisi is an ideal place for hiking. First of all, there are no vehicles, so the only means of land transportation is our feet! Secondly, the distances are not great, so you can literally circle the whole island in less than one day. The hiking trails do not exceed a total of 14 kilometers, and height differences do not exceed 80 meters, unless you want to visit the highest peak on the island at Kato Meria (120 meters altitude). You will need a total of 4 or 5 hours, depending on your walking pace. There is generally not a lot of shade, so it is good to be equipped with the essentials, a map, and especially water. Some beaches are not accessible by land, mainly on the north and northwest coasts.
