PORTO KOUFO Greek

Porto Koufo is the largest and safest natural harbor in Greece. Its name <kofos limin> was mentioned by Thucydides. Its dimensions are : maximum length 1.600m., maximum width 550m., maximum depth 8.23m, entrance opening 300m., entrance depth 10.33m. and 5,5-27 m. On its rocky and steep coastline open up caves, in one particularly on the south-eastern side of the entrance the visitor can enter by boat. Another interesting cave is found on the south-east side of the harbor, on the peak section of the old quarry. A visit today is almost impossible due to the section created by quarrying. This cave must have been a worship spot during the roman years. Later, to purify the area, the Christians drew red characteristic crosses on the caves roof.
