Fourni Islands

The cluster of tiny islands lying between Ikaria, Samos and Patmos are collectively known as the Fourni islands. Here, the landscape is less like nearby Samos and more like the traditional landscape of the Cyclades islands.

Fourni has been inhabited since ancient times and in the Byzantine period it was a heaven for pirates. Blessed with secluded coves and quiet beaches, the islands attract visitors seeking relaxation. The main island has two villages - Kambos, the harbour and Chryssomilia, which are linked by road. There is, a regular boat connection between these small traditional fishing islands. Daily ferryboats as well as hydrofoil (“flying dolphin”) connect Fourni with Piraeus, Samos, Ikaria and most of the Dodecanese islands.
