Prosfora beach
(188 votes)

The longest beach at islet Koufonissi or Lefki  lies at the southeast part of the islet, opposite Africa. Amazing clean water, rocky seabed ideal for snorkeling and smooth sand; the only problem is the lack of shade. If you climb the quite steep sandy slopes of the beach, you will see the ruins of the old lighthouse of Koufonissi, built on an ancient temple.

The name Prosfora is named after the round rock opposite the beach, which locals tell to remind of a  prosphoron, the small loaf of leavened bread used in Orthodox Christian liturgies.
