Fourka is a very small town on the peninsula Kasandra on Halkidiki, about 100km from Thessaloniki.
It has a sandy beach, with the crystal clear water. Under the water is mostly the sand, with the exception of a meter-two belt of rocks at the entrance, and then come the sand and a shoal again. The color of the water is very nice, green-blue, because of the conifers in the surroundings.
On the very shore, just beside the beach, there are two nice taverns with a fantastic view of the sea, but also a great number of private houses owned by the Greeks from Thessaloniki. For that reason approach to the beachcan be more distant from the accommodation site than it really is, since you cannot go through private households. This is why there is no promenade along the sea, but a big and nicely arranged square where the social life takes place. Here are the most of cafes, stores, restaurants and several play rooms.
There are two supermarkets in Fourka, Masoutis and Arvaniditis, so tourists have the possibility of affordable supplying. For a bigger shopping, but also a more lively night life and more interesting evening walks, Kalithea is only 10km away. Hanioti is also nearby, and surely the places on the west coast (Siviri and Nea Skioni).
Fourka is a great resort for those who want to come to a peaceful place without attractive contents for tourists.
