AMALIAPOLI (Port) ALMYROS - Greek Travel Pages



  Surrounded by dense pine and olive groves, 58 kilometers from Volos, the fishing village of Amaliapolis is beautifully laid out in a natural amphitheatre.
  It has two natural harbors, one of them sheltered by the little island of Kikynthos, home to the picturesque little church of Agios Nikolaos, built by the people of Trikeri in 1805. The village has an unbroken history dating back to medieval times.
  The visitor will enjoy his holiday in immaculate hotels or rented accommodation, he will taste the village's traditional fish appetizers and visit the new monastery of Panayia Xenia. He can also sail by caique to enjoy the delights of the sea at Pagasitikos, the Northern Sporades and Evoia. Just 8 kilometers from Amaliapolis lies Sourpi and the beach of Nies, the ancient port of the Myrmidons, from where Achilles set out to the Trojan War. A picturesque beach for swimming and fishing.
