Pelion is, perhaps, the best combination of mountain and sea that you can meet.

The enchanting Milopotamos where the rocks form an arch, Agioi Saranda with its golden sand and the impressive “Kalogeros”, the rock that emerges from the sea, Fakistra with the turquoise waters below Tsagarada and Plaka with the exotic some of them. If you go to Pelion do not miss to pass by the picturesque port of Damouchari with the beautiful cove and you can start listening to the sounds of “Dancing Queen” from somewhere, as the popular scene of the movie “Mamma Mia” was shot in this wonderful setting .
And because Pelion is characterized by contrasts, in the winter months you can find there a Ski Center overlooking the Aegean!
