Porto Koufos port of Sithonia.
The natural harbor of Porto Koufos in the sight of a charm.
The sight of the harbor from the top is unique, huge rocks rising above a bay, which looks incredible with a lake, since the very small opening to the sea is barely visible.
The cape behind the rocks of the bay was called in antiquity Derris. Porto Koufos was the ancient port Toroneos, a safe anchorage for Toronian ships.
The port still maintains its ancient name, by then known as Deaf port, because the ancients maintained that whoever is inside the port does not hear all the noise of the sea. Even using the port as a metaphor for every one that does not hear good,we say he is "kofoteros tou kofou. (deafer as deaf) (Toroneos) port."
Porto Koufos is the safest and largest natural port in Northern Greece and is almost always full with all kinds of boats.
Today is a quiet little fishing village that smells fresh fish.
Do not forget to visit amazing fish restaurants in the harbor.
