Prosfora beach

Beach description

The longest stretch of sand on Koufonissi, also known as Lefki, is located on the southeastern part of the islet, facing Africa. The water is incredibly clear and the rocky seabed is perfect for snorkelling, complemented by the smooth sand. However, the lack of shade can be an issue. If you dare to ascend the somewhat steep sandy inclines of the beach, you’ll find remnants of Koufonissi’s old lighthouse, erected on the site of an ancient temple.

The beach is called Prosfora, named after a round rock visible from the shore. Local lore suggests that this rock resembles a prosphoron, which is a small loaf of leavened bread used in Orthodox Christian liturgies.
