“Tourism Festival by Kourtidis Group”: A new annual event was born

The 1st “Tourism Festival by Kourtidis Group”, organized by the Kourtidis Group of Companies, was a huge success, aiming to highlight important points of interest in the wider region of Kavala, Drama, Serres and Thassos. A festival dedicated to destinations that every visitor can explore and enjoy 365 days a year.

The Festival was held in the specially designed gardens of the Kourtidis Group headquarters in Ofrynio Beach on Friday the 25th and Saturday the 26th of August, with free entrance for all. It was two wonderful summer evenings for the hundreds of visitors, who through stylish stands, with pictures, projections, posters, printed material, discovered the great hidden secrets of the place and the wider region.

Blue-green seas and unique beaches, stunning mountain landscapes, archaeological sites, caves and lakes, picturesque harbours, wineries and dozens of amazing activities became the protagonists of the “Tourism Festival”.

No commercial activity was developed at the Festival, with the sole aim of promoting the region. By decision of the group’s management it was announced earlier that “in this difficult situation that our country and especially our region is experiencing with dozens of fire fronts, the event will be held without the festivities and the planned opening ceremony”.

“Through our efforts and actions, our primary goal is always the development, promotion and recognition of the place we love. Our basic philosophy is to create attractive destinations in the areas we value and are a major emerging force in tourism.

This Festival will become an annual event and was organized to support and strengthen the great efforts that have been made for so many years by the institutional bodies of Local Government for the promotion and publicity of our place” says the President of Kourtidis Group Nikos Kourtidis, who together with his Vice President and partner for many years, Constantina Dimitrova, have played a key role in changing the image of the regions they operate in.

The group’s vice-president expressed her emotion, stressing that “we feel completely justified and satisfied that the great growth of the group has contributed to the development of this historic and blessed place. Today, while browsing the stands, I too discovered destinations that I was not aware of. This is our goal, to know and love every corner of this place”.

Kourtidis Group of Companies would like to thank all those who attended and participated in this very important Tourism Festival. Participants of the “Tourism Festival” were the Region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace, the Region of Central Macedonia, the Vice-Regions of Kavala, Drama and Serres, the Municipalities of Paggaio, Amphipolis, Drama and Serres. At the same time, representatives from the Lake Kerkini National Park, the Alistrati Cave and the Angitis Gorge, the Angitis River Springs Cave, the Nestos Delta National Parks, and the Ancient Stagira of Halkidiki, The Theodoros Kokkinidis’ Wax Museum, the Folklore Art Museums of Hayati Ladia and Sarakatsani, the Lisse Fortress and the Costa Ofrynio Booking company presented and informed about the great work of their institution.

There are also shops offering modern cuisine, with meat cuts, brunch and refined flavours. And of course, as you stroll along the main pedestrian street, you can sample unique street food, doughnuts, roasted corn, crepes and ice cream for an authentic summer dining experience.


  • A Dive into the Past

The wider area of Ofrynio Beach has a long history and you can visit some of the most important archaeological sites in the country. Just a few kilometres away are the Kasta Tomb and the historic Amphipolis, with its excellent Archaeological Museum and an archaeological site like no other. The ancient Gymnasium and the Ancient Bridge of Strimonas stand out among them. On the banks of this river dominates the imposing Lion of Amphipolis, one of the most emblematic monuments of the whole of Macedonia.

A unique experience that you should not miss if you visit Ofrynio Beach!


  • Pure nature

One of the biggest advantages of Ofrynio Beach is the fact that the mountain and the sea are in complete harmony. The blue of the sea and the green of nature “paint” a truly unique landscape. Pangeo Mount is ideal for mountaineering routes on unexplored paths.

The famous Mesoropi Trail reaches the top of Paggaio, Mati, at an altitude of 1956 m. From the first steps you will be captivated by chestnut and plane trees, the succession of small waterfalls and the “Mesoropi waterfall”, 7 m high.


  • Activities for all

Cycling along the beach and fishing for those who want to “clear” their minds of worries, a 5×5 court and basketball court for the sporty types, karting, boat rides or jet skiing for the more adventurous. Of course, there is no shortage of playgrounds and play areas for the younger visitors… Ofrynio Beach has it all!


  • Pink magic

At the mouth of the river Strimonas, a stone’s throw from the beach of Ofrynio, our favourite pink visitors, the beautiful flamingos, “hang out”. You can observe them by going there or, if you are lucky, see them flying over the deep blue waters of the beach. An experience that for those who seek to meet the pink visitors will be unforgettable!


  • Nightlife

In Ofrynio Beach the nights are long… All year round, but especially in the summer when it is “flooded” with people, you will find entertainment options for all preferences and you will spend unforgettable evenings with your friends. Bars, Roof top and clubs, live music and frequent performances of well-known artists and DJs, drinks and fun until the early hours of the morning. Of course, there are also tavernas by the sea for the most romantic people and evening beach parties in organized beach bars!


  • Golden hour

The most magical time of the day is the moment when the sun “sinks” into the sea and the sky and the water are “dressed” in gold. The sunset at Ofrynio Beach is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful you have ever seen…

A picture is worth a thousand words. Of course there are also the most idyllic spots where you can enjoy it. We will always have suggestions if you need help!

Even if you don’t have time to enjoy all our suggestions, you will surely get a taste of the wonderful Ofrynio Beach – Costa Ofrynio!
