In the afternoon, cruise to tranquil Ano Koufonisi for a guided walking/photography tour with refreshing dips along the way in the clear and crystal waters. Koufonisia means 'hollow islands' and they were named so by pirates, as the big caves convinced them that the islands were hollow from a distance. Overnight in port.
