Porto Koufo is a tiny fishing village located on the south-west point of the Sithonia peninsula and boasts the largest natural harbour in Greece and a rich history. The harbour was used as a base by Turkish pirates and also during World War II by Germans for U-boats (because of its geographical location and direct access to the Aegean Sea). The German army fortified the area and many of those fortifications are still visible.


Porto Koufo has approximately 100 inhabitants and consists only of some houses, buildings and some tourist facilities.
The countryside surrounding Porto Koufo seems untainted and looks very wild and rocky. It is one of the most beautiful areas in Halkidiki. Aside from the tiny village and small beach of Porto Koufo you will find a very large but calm sandy beach at Tristinika, some minutes from Porto Koufo. If you are planning to visit this beach, follow the main road from Porto Koufo in the direction of Neos Marmaras. Soon you will see a sign on your left. Follow this sign and via a narrow curved path you will arrive at this beautiful beach. In September, Porto Koufo hosts the festival; “Fishing of the Tuna”.
