Fourni

Fourni is one of the north Aegean islands, situated between Samos and Ikaria, with a population of approximately 2,000 residants. More precisely, Fourni is an island complex consisting of twelve islands, three large, (Fourni, Thymaina, Agios Minas), and nine smaller ones. Fourni is the largest of all, with its homonymous capital built around the small natural port. All houses are built in the traditional Greek way, while the rest of the island is almost deserted. In the village’s square, with the huge plane-tree, the visitor can enjoy a coffee at the traditional coffee shops. Most of the restaurants are by the sea.
Fourni is not just an ideal destination for those wishing to relax, it is also a suitable environment for seabirds, among which is the rare sea-gull of the Aegean, («Aegeoglaros»). The area is, actually, part of the «Natura 2000» program.
Secluded coves and bays are within walking distance, one of the best being Kampi. Other examples of  beautiful beaches are the ones of Vitsilia, Petrokopio, Elidaki and Bali.
On the left side of Fourni lies the island of Chrysomilia and on the right that of Thymaina. The third island of Agios Minas lies to the east and is uninhabited.
If you wish to visit Fourni you can take the Piraeus-Samos car-farries and do not forget that on the island there are no cars at all.
