Porto Koufo is a quiet seaside village on Toroneos Gulf that is the perfect place for relaxing vacation.

 

Porto Koufo is a small fishing village which means in Greek “the deaf port” as sometimes it is possible not even from the sea to be heard. If you seeking for a resting position, then this village should be one of the top choices in the lists for your holiday vacations. The view of the harbour from the top of the southern pek of the peninsula, Kapros is breathtaking. Try walking the Porto Koufo new route, a 4klm trail and admire the view!

 

The little village of Porto Koufo has a couple of hotels, some rooms to let having a great view to the harbor, and some small traditional tavernas serving tasty Greek cuisine.

Porto Koufo is the largest (in-depth) and
safest natural harbour in Greece.

 

There are huge rocks, rising above a bay, which looks like a lake since the small opening to the sea is almost invisible. When it comes to the coast, it is steep rocky one with amazing caves while there is a unique secret gem which can only be reached by boat. German submarines were stationed here during the Second World War (WWII) because of the large depth of the harbor but also because of its geographical location that offers direct access to the Aegean Sea.

Worth it to see:

  • The southernmost cape “Kartalia” of Sithonia, an area kind of dangerous for navigators, but very impressive as a landscape. The coast is rocky and the cliffs stand vertically to a height of more than 100 meters.
  • Remains of a concrete water reservoir and anti-aircraft gun platforms -which was constructed during World War II- can still be seen on the summit of Kapros.
  • Admire the deepest natural harbor of Greece by walking uo to the summit of Kapros, an easy 4klm circular route.

Don’t miss it!

Go on scuba-diving underwater the cave “Erica” and explore the old Turkish pirate shipwreck,
down to 35 meters depth.
