Agria at a glance

The charm of Agria village lies in its mellow seaside vibe and scattering of meze eateries with pristine sea views. Just over four miles along the coast from the city of Volos, Agria is ideal for those who want a laid-back holiday destination by the sea, with easy access to a small urban centre with an abundance of bars, restaurants and shopping opportunities.

Agria is all about the sparkling sea views that can be spotted at every twist and turn, thanks to the long stretch of coastline that characterises the locality. Days spent in Agria are all about exploring the rambling streets and soaking up the incredible views. The main beach of Agria and Souterali Beach at the far south of the village are both popular spots, and have an abundance of sun loungers. There are plenty of other spots along the coastline to wander, stop for a swim, or discover tiny chapels carved into the rockface.

Aside from the pristine sea views, Agria is well known for its locally produced lemonade, olives and olive oil products, which are exported across the globe. The village’s name is even thought to originate from the word ‘agrielies’, which means ‘wild olive trees’. A perfect pocket-sized holiday destination that gives visitors a little bit of everything, Agria is all-at-once quaint and beautiful.

Please note we offer flights via Skiathos and Volos to Pelion Peninsula including transfers.
