And surrounding Fourka are tracks and trails to keep walkers and hikers content with country pursuits.
If it’s sun and sand you’re coming for, Fourka gives you good facilities and a great beach. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants down by the sea in Skala Fourkas (to give the resort its full title) – along with just one disco. The narrow sweep of golden sand shelves gently into the water. Water sports are also available.
The original village is a step back in time, with 19th century houses, a Byzantine church and pots of colourful flowers. Sightseeing includes boats to Skiathos or Mount Athos, and summer concerts at Siviri’s open amphitheatre.
