Fournoi is an archipelago of small Greek islands that lie between the islands of Ikaria, Samos and Patmos on the North Aegean. The island's main town, also called Fournoi, is also the island's main ferry port. In earlier times Fourni was called Korseon and was the site of pirates. Rich in history, the unspoilt island has many ancient remains located all around the island that date back to the Ionians, Classical and Hellenistic periods. Popular with visitors are the ruins of the ancient temple at Kamari and the remains of dwellings on the sea bed, the Cyclopean wall with traces of an Acropolis on the Hill of Ai Giorgis, the ancient quarry at Petrokopio and the shrine to Poseidon at Agia Triada. The main income source for the island's inhabitants is from fishing, agriculture and farming and of course, tourism. There are a number of beautiful beaches on the island such as Vlychada, Vitsilia, Petrokopio, Elidaki and Bali.
The Greek town of Evdilos is located in the northern part of the island of Ikaria which lies in the north Aegean Sea. The town, which was amphitheatrically, was only built after 1830 following the end of pirate attacks on the island. The town was the island's temporary capital before Agios Kirikos was declared the capital during the second Turkish Occupation between 1834 and 1912. The town's name means 'visible and freely rendered open horizon'. Today, the town is home to the island's second port and is the centre of the northern, central and western parts of the island. Together with the settlements of Arethousa, Dafni, Karavostamo, Manganitis, and Frandato, they form the community of Evdilos with around 2,400 permanent inhabitants.
The island's terrain is characterised by mountains, lovely rivers and spectacular gorges and is popular with hikers. However, the island also has some lovely sandy and pebble beaches some of which are fairly secluded that are difficult to access, even by car. There is certainly something for everyone on the island.
