pelion must visit beaches

The eastern side of Pelion is washed by the Aegean Sea; this fact explains the existence of its beautiful beaches. The picturesque villages, which are literally located in the woods of Pelion, along with the Aegean culture in the coastline of the area, create alternative forms of entertainment and getaways.  

To reach the eastern side of Pelion, visitors are expected to cross a distance about 55km from city of Volos or 110km from the city of Larissa. Although there are regular public transport services, a car or a motorbike would be ideal for those who wish to explore the area and move without limits from place to place. Roads in Pelion are narrow and full of steep turns, up hills and down hills, like in most mountainous areas. The construction quality of the road is good and sufficiently covered with asphalt. All you need to do is make sure to fill up your car’s fuel tank in a petrol station in Volos, as petrol and fuel cost about 10 to 20 cents more in petrol stations around Pelion.

Due to the fact that the route to Pelion is rather peculiar, we recommend visitors to stay at least 2 or 3 days in the area, so as to have ample time to enjoy the experience of exploring Pelion and its surroundings.

The area offers various accommodation facilities and many options to the visitors, such as camping (only available at Papa Nero), hotels, villas and rooms to let. Prices vary depending on low or high season; there are available rooms and apartments ranging for 30 to 250 euro per night. You may choose to stay either by the beach or at a mountainous settlement; whichever you choose make sure you consider carefully all the advantages and disadvantages of each type of accommodation. If you choose to camp by the seaside, bear in mind that you are privileged having ensured easy access to the beach, but this could be a disadvantage if you intend to visit the rest of the area; it is more time consuming to tour the rest of the region. Staying in a mountainous settlement provides faster access to most beaches, about 20 or 40 minutes ride, depending on the beach you plan to visit. Pelion and its surroundings, as well as all its beaches, provide the visitors with all the necessary facilities they need, such as grocery stores, coffee shops, pharmacies, restaurants and petrol stations.

mouresi hotels

Mouresi is one of the oldest villages of Pelion amphitheatrically built, with great views towards the mountain, the neighboring villages of Kissos and Agios Dimitrios and the Αegean Sea, spanning around a forestry mountainside. Its natural beauty and traditional colors are ideal for quiet and peaceful holidays away from the crowds.

The village of Mouresi was initially built in the coast, specifically in the coast of Damouchari, where remains of the old settlement still exist. From 1600-1700 people started moving up creating todays village. Regarding the name origin there’s uncertainty. Some say it is from the many mulberry trees (greek: mouries) or from Myres in Asia Minor from where the first inhabitants came from, others claim it’s from the Slavic word "mours" meaning “finding fertile grounds”. Finally it is said that it derives from the Latin word Bourtz meaning castle, referring to Venetian castle that once stood in Damouchari and today is in ruins.Through its cobbled paths and trails you can tour the village, see the great mansions and the stone houses but also hike towards the neighboring Tsagarada. The houses in this village are not gathered around a central square but scattered around the mountain hills.
