The small fishing village of Goupa on Kimolos
Goupa is a small fishing village with nice surroundings about 10-15 minutes walk from Chora. The village is known for its colourful boat houses (Sirmata) which are carved directly in the rocks. Together with the small, and likewise colourful, fishing boats, they form a beautiful backdrop behind the turquoise sea. About 10 people live in the village. The small village is extremely photogenic and the photos are perfect for Instagram and Facebook if you want to make your friends jealous. There is even a photo-friendly elephant here.
Sometimes fishermen sits outside the boat garages in Goupa working
with their yellow nets. You can stroll along the water on handmade
bridges in stone. The small beach in the village is not the best in the
Greek archipelago, but it is good enough for a cooling swim after the
walk from Chora. In addition, there are many beautiful rocks to
sunbathe on, and to dive from. The water is absolutely amazing!
Here are some pictures from beautiful Goupa.
Above the small boat garages are some dwelling houses.
Amazing Goupa. The island in the background is Sifnos.
You only have one place to choose if you want to stay overnight in lovely little Goupa. The Elephant Beach House is situated by the sea and consists of one room. Certainly it sounds cool to stay there a few nights.
