Beaches of Kavala
Kavala offers 80km of coastline, that extends from city center both to the west and the east. Beaches are busy and offer easy access for everyone. Many of the beaches have beach bars, juice stands and restaurants specializing in local wines, fresh fish and other seafood. Also there are other more quiet that offer the serenity with the endless view of the tranquil, crystalline waters of Aegean sea.
Out of all of the Kavala beaches, Ammolofoi is by far the most popular. It is usually packed with young people. The beach is a little over a mile in length and very wide, and has natural sand dunes to explore. The water is warm and clear. Nearby is the ancient castle of Anaktoroupolis, which history and anthropology buffs will thoroughly enjoy. There are beach bars and restaurants everywhere, and the beach provides lifeguards to keep you safe and water activities to keep you entertained all day long. Since Ammolofoi has practically everything a tourist could want in a beach, it tends to overshadow other nearby beaches such as Nea Peramos, which is also a large, gorgeous beach that is very accessible and has many typical fish restaurants along it.
This luxury beach is in the resort area of town. Hotels, restaurants, cafes and clubs are the kings along this coast. Being quite a long beach, Nea Iraklitsa is split into two sections: the west side, which is very busy and hectic, teeming with bars and nightlife, and the east side, which is more tranquil and suitable for families. From this beach, you can go on a variety of diving tours and boating trips to the few islets along the coast. Some of them have caves that you can explore as well.
Palio is basically a collection of beaches split up by rocky outcrops. It stretches from Tosca to Iraklitsa and is the perfect place for families to spend the day. It is clean as well as calm, that is to say, it is not as crazy as some of the other beaches that are lined with bars and partygoers. There is no actual parking area for this beach, but there are always plenty of free spaces to park nearby.
