Porto Koufo is located in Halkidiki, 25 km away from Neos Marmaras and to get there, you’ll pass through an idyllic route full of beautiful pine trees. It is a small and quiet fishing village which smells like fresh fish. Porto Koufo is the safest and largest (in depth) natural harbor in Greece and is where almost all fishing boats in the region unload their catch. Porto Koufo also has beautiful taverns where you will eat the freshest fish in Halkidiki.
Porto Koufo has an impressive history, even mentioned by Thucydides, the famous ancient Greek historian.
Porto Koufo was described by ancient civilizations as the “Deaf Harbor“. They believed that everyone in the bay of Porto Koufo could not hear any noise from the sea. This should be one of the top choices on the lists for your holiday vacations. The view of the harbor from the top is breathtaking. Huge rocks rise above a bay, which looks like a lake since the small opening to the sea is almost invisible. Along the coast there are caves and in some of them you can enter by boat. A very impressive place is Kartalia, the southern cape of Sithonia. You can only get there by boat.
German submarines were stationed here during the Second World War because of the bottomless depth of the harbor but also because its geographical location offers direct access to the Aegean Sea.
The beach of Porto Koufo, which is located diametrically opposite the harbor, will offer you relaxation and tranquility away from tourists. In the village, there are apartments and hotels for your stay. We recommend Studios Kofos Limin which is situated 100 meters from the beach. You could also stay at Meliton Inn Hotel & Suites and Porto Koufo Resort.
