Porto Koufo is an amazing location at Sithonia, Halkidiki approx. 150 km from Thessaloniki. A cove with the deepest natural and safest harbor in Greece and also a picturesque fishing village.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
Huge rocks rise above the cove allowing only a really narrow opening to the Aegean Sea thus making it a well-hidden natural harbor. German submarines were docked here during the Second World War (WWII) because of its depth and its strategic geographical location that provides direct access to the sea.
Porto Koufo in Greek means “the deaf port” as it so calm and well protected so it is hard to listen to the waves and winds of the Aegean Sea. This lake-like, natural port was even mentioned by the great Greek historian Thucydides. Along with breathtaking views, crystal clear sandy beaches you may taste fresh fish and fish food at the traditional taverns located just in front of the sea.
