I had never seen a sea this colour blue until we went to the Greek island of Koufonissia. The extraordinary turquoise water in the harbour is the first thing you notice when you step off the ferry.
If you’re dreaming of the picture-perfect harbours and white cubed buildings of the Cyclades but are worried about sharing all that beauty with crowds of other tourists then the Small Cyclades are for you. This group of four inhabited islands between Naxos and Amorgos is Greek perfection - without the crowds.
I’ll be posting pictures of Koufonissia (the most well-known of the islands in the group) all this week to show you what I mean...
