The village of Fourka let you see both sides of Greece. Down at the seafront, it's a modern resort – purpose built for visitors to enjoy the long hot days. A couple of miles inland are the old village – the perfect antidote for those who crave a fix of character and charm. If its 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 Fourkas. 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.
The beaches are mainly of fine white sand, great for the sun worshipper and those wanting time to relax. Most beaches in the area have a good range of water sports to keep those with a more active disposition happy.
There are a large range of snack bars and restaurants. Many are there purely for the tourist, however for the best cuisine try and discover some traditional Greek dishes in a local tavern. Bars and taverns abound in this area, with a large disco for those who feel the need to party to the early hours.
