The village of Kala Nera is only 18km from the city of Volos and is not only accessible all year round, but the mountain villages of Pelion are easily reached from here.
Rich in vegetation, the plane trees, poplars and eucalyptus virtually touch the waves and create a landscape that blends the green with the blue of the sea with a wonderful sunset.

Kala Nera has a large sandy beach shaded by the plane trees with cafeterias, bars, tavernas and shops spread out along the edge. There is also a jetty with moorings for the many boats, private and excursion.

During the summer months the small excursion boats take visitors out to the Pagasitikos Gulf to enjoy good food and swimming off the inaccessible beaches.

If you are lucky you will also visit the island of Prasoudas with the stunning Byzantine chapel and the tiny island of Trikeri, located opposite the village of Trikeri panorama icon and Agia Kyriaki. panorama icon

Kala Nera is easily accessed and has an excellent infrastructure for tourism with a high number of visitors during the summer months, long weekends and sunny days of the winter.

The abundance and quality of the potable water that flows from the many springs and fountains near the sea gives the name to the village, ‘kala nera’ translates as ‘good water’.

Naturally the landscape means there are many wonderful outings for walkers and nature lovers with stone-paved footpaths that connect Kala Nera with Milies where the traditional train ‘Moutzouris’ panorama icon runs from Ano Lechonia panorama icon to the picturesque villages of Vizitsa panorama icon and Pinakates. panorama icon

During the summer there are many cultural events in the area. The feast of the Panagia (Virgin Mary) is celebrated on the 15th August with music, dancing and feasting whilst on the evening of the 14th there is a procession with the Holy icon through the village accompanied by philharmonic music, followed by the faithful.

Also, during the Christmas holidays, traditional carols are chanted throughout the evening by the men of the village, particularly on the eve of the ‘lights’. Lazarus’ feast is also equally impressive from the small ‘Lazarines’ to the decoration of the ‘Epitafios’ (the body of Christ) on Good Thursday evening that is then paraded past the residents of the village on the evening of Good Friday.

During the feast of the Ascension of Jesus Christ revived annually in May, the traditional custom of sanctification of the horses takes place where they take the animals into the sea to keep them healthy through the coming year.

A large number of horses and their respective riders gather each year to honour the traditional programme of events that are patronised by the Muncipalty of South Pelion and the local Tourist Development Association.

Kala Nera is renowned for the quality of service it offers its visitors who will find a wide range of shops, dining and entertainment as well as a good choice of accommodation to suit every taste and budget.
