A large seaside village with a vibrant yet traditional atmosphere, Afissos is a brilliant holiday spot to blend activity with laid-back Greek living. The promenade is the hub of life here, set slightly higher than the water so you can enjoy the entrancing views. There are three beaches to choose from – Ampovo, Lagoudi and Kallifteri – with yet more hideaway beach spots to be discovered off the coastal path between Afissos and Lefokastro.
Afissos is a place where you can find your own peaceful spot of heaven if you want it, or immerse yourself in the vibrancy of village life. This is a locality of antiquated stone houses and towering mansions, which are the former homes of olive and silk merchants. Nowadays, there are plentiful beach bars, coffee spots and tavernas to choose from, as well as handful of souvenir shops selling locally crafted products.
While there is plenty going on in Afissos to wend away tranquil days, the village’s location half way along the Pelion peninsula coastline also makes it an excellent place to explore many other places in the region. From quaint villages and tucked away beaches, to walks and hikes on the slopes of Mount Pelion itself, there is plenty at your doorstep when you stay in Afissos. The small city of Volos is just 15 miles up the coastline too, if you want to do more sightseeing, visit the marina restaurants, or embark on boating day trips.
Please note we offer flights via Skiathos and Volos to Pelion Peninsula including transfers.
