Nea Peramos

Nea Peramos is the capital of the Eleutheres Region and one of the most popular resorts of Kavala Region. It is located approximately 20 km west from Kavala, right next to Nea Iraklitsa. 

 

One of its main attractions is the Ancient City (Anaktoroupolis) where many artistic and cultural festivals are held by the Municipality of Paggaion in collaboration with local cultural unions, especially during the summer period.

 

On the holy day of 15 August a great festival takes place around the little church build by refugees and dedicated to Panagia (Virgin Mary). However, festivals do take place outside the peak period as well (e.g. the Tsipouro Festival every October). Nea Peramos is also famous for its amazing, long, sandy beach "Ammolofi" where you can choose between cosmopolitan beach bars and less crowded little bays. In the evenings, you can enjoy a walk along the coastal pedestrian zone or visit a traditional tavern to taste the delicious local flavors (from meat and salads to sea food and desserts!). Alternatively, you can choose a bar to enjoy your drink or ice-cream and relax watching the breathtaking sunset...
