The Nei Pori promenade is a nice place for a stroll in the early morning or evening. It invites you for some jogging and cycling or just having a traditional Greek coffee at one of the cafe's along the promenade.

In the evening, one can find nice places in abundance here, just for a drink or to have a bite. Either at a traditional Greek restaurant or in a Greek "fastfood" place, serving souvlaki and giros. You could also choose yourself a pizzeria, a pancake- or ice-salons, fish-restaurant, coffee-bar etc.
People enjoy a evening walk along the beach, are having a drink or just sitting on one of the public benches along the promenade and gazing at the sunset.
Just behind that, you will find small shops, a few supermarkets and the cheaper, but maybe even better real Greek restaurants, that the locals prefer. Ask us to put you in the right direction for a quality meal for a small price.
Nei Pori promenade with beachbar
Nei Pori is a relatively new village. It is built in the end of the Seventies when the grounds were allotted to the villagers of the old mountain village Pori or "Pourlia" in the foothills of the Lower Olympus mountains. You can see it from the beach 400 mtr above Pori, some 8 km up in the mountains.
The grounds where new village Pori is situated, once constituted the pastor fields of the old village Pourlia. Pori lies within the Delta of the Pinios River. Just south of the village this delta is a protected nature area. The presence of the river delta also explains the sandy beaches and shallow thus warm sea, that is without current and ideal for small children.
Karitsa beach at mount Kissafos (Ossa)
Just south of the village there are many kilometers of unorganized, quiet or even "private" beaches. A little further, at the foot of the Kissafos mountain, many idyllic, small bays are waiting to be discovered and enjoyed (see the picture above the site).
