Information On Fournoi


Fournoi is a complex of 3 small inhabited islands - Fournoi, Thymaina and Agios Minas - and 12 smaller islets. Fournoi are located in Northern Aegean, inside the triangle formed by Ikaria, Samos and Patmos islands.

Fournoi have a weird shape, as the main island is made up by two parts which are connected with a narrow isthmus. The dismemberment of the coastline is remarkable, with a length of over 100, which made the island an ideal hideout for pirates, and this is the reason that besides Fournoi Ikarias the island is also called Fournoi Korseon.

Fournoi have a main settlement which serves both as a capital and island's harbor. The picturesque village is built amphitheatrically around the harbor with large mountains surrounding it. The central road has whitewashed mulberry trees along both sides and leads to the central square with the platanus tree.

Fournoi is famous for its great festivals with music, dancing, food and drink for everyone. The biggest one takes place on August 15th but there are more, like the Fish Festival on the last weekend of July.

Fournoi is an ideal destination for quiet family vacations and relaxation away from civilization and traffic.

Fournoi has a gas station and an ATM machine inside the main settlement.
