Fonias is a well-known proper name in Samothraki. It's the name of an important river, of a tower and the beer produced here.
Near its mouth, there's a quiet and secluded beach with gray rocks and blue waters. There are no amenities to speak of, but it's a popular fishing spot for the locals.
There's a medieval tower to one of its sides, built by Gateluzzi to fortify the island.
Things to see nearby
Right by the beach, on the other side of the main road that follows the northern shore, there's a parking lot that marks the start of the path to the waterfalls and vathres of Fonias.
Taverns in the area
On the side of the road that's closer to the sea, across from the start of the path, there's a taverna called I Gefira tou Fonia in a green courtyard full of hydrangea and colorful decorations.
