Porto Koufo

Porto Koufo  is a village in the South of Sithonia in Toroneos bay. It has a long history and it is the deepest natural harbour in Greece. ​It was even mentioned by the historian Thucydides in his works. Porto Koufo is one of the few remaining villages with a very low rate of permanent residents.

Porto Koufo means “deaf port”, because it is protected so that the sound of the sea could not be heard. It is only a few kilometers away from the larger town of Toroni, and Porto Koufo is part of the Porta (fortification) that protected Toroni from pirates.

Porto Koufo Port

Porto Koufo has a very long history due to its geographical features. It served as a shelter for Turkish pirates and even used by Germans as submarine hideout during world war II.

The village of Porto Koufo is an ideal destination for those who like nature and solitude. There aren’t many tourist facilities and activities but Porto Koufo offers a beautiful pedestrian road along the port and the beach, some traditional taverns where you can taste fresh fish and other Sithonia specialties and some small grocery shops. In the port you can rent a boat or enjoy the view of luxurious yachts docked there.

A 1.5 km Porto Koufo beach has fine sand and crystal clear water. The sea is always calm but it gets deep quickly. Behind the beach,  you can see high rocks reaching the sky so the whole ambience might feel like you are on a lake.

Nearby, you can enjoy snorkeling as there are reefs and underwater caves (like Erica), where you can see an old pirate ship 35 m under the surface. You can take a boat and explore other amazing features of southern Sithonia or go hiking and climb Kapros to enjoy the breathtaking view of the bay.
