Dinky Fourka, on the first ‘leg’ of Halkidiki, is a charming, typical Greek village turned wonderful resort town. Fourka holidays are spent bouncing between the picturesque village and its nearby sandy beaches, where you can savour stupendous seascapes and glowing sunsets. Fourka really is a visual feast, with the surrounding pine tree forests and olive groves providing a spectacular contrast to the rolling azure of the sea.
As a well-equipped resort, you’ll find everything you need in Fourka, including brilliant dining options, and parties and events put on by the town’s cultural association in the evenings. During the day, you’ll probably want to spend most of your time at the beach – and Fourka Beach has white sand and Blue Flag status, along with laid-back bars and tavernas serving seafood. For sun, sea, sand and relaxation, holidays to Fourka are about as perfect as they come.
Catch the sunset
In the late afternoon, make a beeline for the beach – it’s west-facing and makes a dazzling spot to enjoy a drink as the sun goes down.
Stroll in the village
It’s well worth spending a morning wandering the charming Fourka village, where you’ll stumble across wonderful Byzantine churches, pretty, flower-filled courtyards and traditional stone houses.
Laze at the beach
Thanks to its crystal-clear blue waters and soft golden sand, Fourka Beach is one of Halkidiki’s most beautiful, and time spent at the seaside is sure to be a holiday highlight.
