The beach of Porto Koufo which is located diametrically opposite the harbor, will offer you moments of relaxation and tranquility as it is not very touristic. In the village there are apartments and a few hotels for your stay. We recommend you Studios Kofos Limin situated 100 meters from the beach, Studios Meliton located almost on the beach, and Hotel Porto Koufo.

Porto Koufo is being described by the ancients as the "Deaf Harbor". They believed that everyone in the bay of Porto Koufo, could not hear any noise from the sea. So, for guests, by seeking a resting position we believe that this should be one of the top choices in the lists for their holiday vacations. The view of the harbor from the top is breathtaking. Huge rocks, rising above a bay, which looks like a lake, since the small opening to the sea is almost unvisible. 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 get there only by boat.
German submarines were stationed here during the Second World War because of the bottomless depth of the harbor but also because of its geographical location that offers direct access to the Aegean Sea.
