Costa Ofrynio: the perfect tourist destination for every taste

Gastronomic Tourism

The “king” of gastronomy in Costa Ofrynio is the fish, which is served to the customer a few hours after leaving the sea. In the area are produced almonds, olives and grapes. The visitor can taste them not only raw but also their derivatives. A meal in a local tavern is cooked with extra virgin olive oil of the area, accompanied by excellent quality wine or tsipouro, produced in local wineries and supplemented with special sweets, based on almonds.

Historical Tourism

Costa Ofrynio is located between two cities that flourished in antiquity: Amphipolis and Philippi, which were connected by the ancient Egnatia Odos. The port of Ampipolis was Kiona, today’s Costa Ofrynio, from where the fleet of Alexander the Great set out for his distant campaign in India.

On the other hand, Philippi marks the beginning of Christian Europe, as it is the first European city in which the Apostle of the Nations, Paul, proclaimed Christianity and baptized the first European Christian, Lydia.

Amphipolis, just 10 km from Costa Ofrynio, is a reference point of the wider area. The “Lion of Amphipolis” and the contemporary excavations in “Casta Tomb” have turned the area into the center of global attention, suggesting the long and glorious history of the area.

The archaeological museum of the area and a number of Roman, Hellenistic and Byzantine monuments, give a strong motivation to the visitor to admire them in close.

Religious Tourism

Numerous visitable monasteries and churches in the area, await the visitor to know better the Byzantine and folk art in all its forms: architecture, sculpture, hagiography. The Holy Monasterry of Panagia Eikosifoinissa occupies a special place, on the northern side of Mount Paggaio, a monastery with long history and participation in national struggles.

Ecological Tourism

Costa Ofrynio is a beautiful seaside destination. Above it, stands the auriferous Mount Paggaio, offering the visitor the option “mountain and sea”.

Mount Paggaio is a place of special natural beauty, included in NATURA network, with rich flora and fauna, walking paths and caves with petroglyphs. In other words, it is a real challenge for lovers of alternative tourism!

There are also two marinas in Costa Ofrynio, where you can moor sailing boats, while small boats are available for the visitors to engage in fishing.

Summer Tourism

At 17km of coastline, there are various choices depending on the visitor’s mood:

Organized beach bars offering coffee, snacks and cocktails and isolated parts of the beach for unique moments overlooking the endless blue. Lasting value, the quality of the blue green waters and white sand.

The main advantage of Costa Ofrynio is its location, close to one of the largest crossroads of Northern Greece.  

Its connection with Egnatia Odos has as a consequence that the beaches are accessible at a time corresponding to the kilometer distance, without being affected by traffic.
