 By bus

 By taxi
No taxi service is available on the island.
 By car
It is not worth the hassle to bring your own car to the island, although it is in theory possible. Roads turn out to be little more than dirt paths. There is one in the interior, and one along the south. A Gas station has opened in 2005 so you can refill your car now. Whether this is a good thing is questionable.
 By motorcycle
Motorbikes and mopeds are popular alternatives to cars. Especially mopeds are frequently used by local youths and can go to many places that cars cannot go - for example the twisted narrow streets of Koufonisi city.
If you start a day-trip with a moped, make you sure you do so on a full tank, as gas stations are sometimes hard to find. An extra stop at a gas station can save a lot of nerves. When renting a moped,which you can't do on the island, check if the profile of the tyres is ok and if the brakes work properly. If it is the last vehicle in store, be suspicious - it could be the one that needs a repair badly. Though helmets are not required on the streets, it might be a good idea to ask your rent-a-bike for one.
 By bicycle
There are a couple of places to rent bicycles. Be careful if you're biking offroad as the cliffs and vegetation are fragile!

There is a couple of beaches on Koufonisi. The best is in the south-east. The wind mostly comes in from the north and also the sea tends to be somewhat rougher to the north. In the peak season the beaches can be very crowded, and some guests take the local ferry to neighbor islands to find less crowded beaches.
