Fourni beach is ideal for those who enjoy the wild beauty of nature. There are no tourist facilities here but only a small canteen that sells refreshments and light snacks. Umbrellas and sunbeds are in limited offering, it is advised that you bring your own. Otherwise you will have to get here early to secure a place in the shade of the rocks on the right-hand side of the beach. If you wish for more privacy, try the end of the path that runs to the left. Look for the rock ancient carvings in the shape of baths. According to local historians, the baths were built for the exclusive use of nobility.

There are a few pine trees, rocks to swim from, and often, waves - the western coast of the island has the roughest seas. You can find even wilder coves and bays, with sand, big pebbles and very few people, ideal for those who like wavy seas or fishing, by following the dirt roads as you make your way from Kattavia to Monolithos, opposite the solitary rock in the shape of a boat which rises up above the waves.
