Swimming in Magnesia(Pelion)

There are beaches everywhere in Magnesia, especially on both sides of the Pelion peninsula. Those on the inner side of Pelion are referred to as being on the Pegasitic Gulf (Gulf of Pegasus). The ones on the outer side facing the west are on the Aegean Sea. There are some nice beaches too before you get to Pelion, like Nea Anchialos, but the best and most remote are in Pelion, particularly on the Aegean side.


The team at Hotel des Roses offers three very interesting tours that involve hiking, archaeology, swimming, swimming, soap-making, culture and mountain climbing. Check them out:
