Porto Koufo Beach

Porto Koufo or "Deaf Port" in Greek language is one of the two ports of Toroni. This port is considered as the largest and safest port in Northern Greece. During the World War II, the German invaders used this port due to its geographical advantage and its direct access to Aegean Sea.

In ancient times, Porto Koufo was used as a haven for pirates who looted Halkidiki. Violence prevailed almost every inch of the port and the surrounding towns. Now, it is a small fishing town emanating a peaceful atmosphere for both locals and tourists. Although the beach is relatively small, it has a beautiful natural setting surrounded by thick vegetation. This port has since become a perfect tourist destination looking for fun and relaxation at the same time.
