This is a well-known resort area but still not very busy. There are beaches with olive groves and much vegetation, such as Kallifteri, Lagoudi and Ambovos. In Afissos, the mansions of captains who shipped olive oil, olives and silk to Egypt, Constantinople, and Romania still stand.
On the Aegean coast of Pelio there are stunning beaches. The beach of Mikro, a village with 100 residents, is very beautiful. Just 4 km away is the natural port of Hondri Ammos, with remains of a fortress. On the way to Trikery the beach of Jasteni or Avra is also impressive, emerging between two seas
