Description

View of the port.

Plomari is located due south of Mount Olympos. It offers scenic appeal as well as the presence of its famous ouzo-distilling industry. Brands can be sampled at the traditional kafenia. The local festival (or "panigiri") season kicks off in mid-July with an ouzo festival, and culminates towards the end month in celebrations honouring Agios Haralambos and including such rural activities as horse race. The seaside summer resort of Agios Isidoros lies on the east, two kilometers far from Plomari, while the seaside neighbourhood Ammoudeli, with the church of Agios Panteleimonas, is located on the west. Agios Isidoros has been voted as the seventh best beach of Greece, in a voting that took place through the internet for the program of clean coasts.[] West of Plomari 6 km away you can reach Melinda, a 700-metre sand-and-shingle beach at the mouth of a canyon choked with olive trees.
