Fournoi is a clutch of small islands in the Ikaria region of Greece. These islands, of which only two are inhabited, sit in a pleasantly warm stretch of the Aegean Sea near to the western border of Turkey. The largest of these isles, also called Fournoi, is a narrow, snaking stretch of land shaped by a saw-toothed shoreline and an undulating inland landscape of steep, shrub-covered hills.
The port of Fournoi is located in the island’s largest town of Fourni. It’s a community with a love for fine seafood. A large fleet of fishing vessels regularly leave from the town’s west-facing bay to trawl the bountiful waters of the nearby Mediterranean, hoping to quench the almost insatiable local hunger for great-tasting fish.
The town itself is formed around a twisting network of lanes that lead away from beach-lined edge of the bay towards the charming whitewashed buildings that rise on tiers towards the surrounding foothills. The departure point for ferries is found at the foot of a small concrete pier near to the centre of the curved shoreline. It’s a small area with no check-in terminal or passenger amenities, though a few cafés selling hot food and drinks can be found close by.
Transportation across the island is limited due to its small size and secluded location. Only one main road feeds into Fourni, a route that heads south to the hamlet of Plagia, while a single bus shuttles passengers from the port to the island’s main beaches.
A number of ferries leave from the port a few times throughout the week. Dodekanisos Seaways offer a host of routes to the islands that pepper the Aegean Sea, from Samos and Ikaria (also serviced by Hellenic Seaways), a short distance to the north, as well as a Patmos, Lipsi, Leros, Kalimnos and Kos that stretch further south.
