Fourka is located 105km south-western of Thessaloniki on the Kassandra-peninsula. Fourka is divided into two areas: the touristic-related coastal area 'Skala Fourkas' '(also known as 'Fourka Beach') and the traditional village Fourka located in 2km distance in the mountains.
The road to Fourka leads over an elevated plateau and welcomes the visitor by a stunning landscape panorama over the coastal village.
The appearance of the center of Fourka Beach is defined by a well-kept spacious square encircled by seafood restaurants, taverns, cafes and bars in immediate distance to the coast.
Due to its western location on the peninsula, Fourka offers the visitor the possibility to enjoy beautiful sunsets over a panoramic coast.

Conterminous to the center is the wide beach. Several beach bars are located on the wide, sandy beach-area and various events are taking place during summer.
On July the local cultural association organizes its annual festival of 'Agia Marina' as one of the most important events on the peninsula of Kassandra.
The beaches of the area are awarded with the 'blue flag'
The recent growth of the coastal area Fourka Beach is significantly contributed to the rapid increase of tourism during the recent years.
