In a distance of 0.5 miles southwest of the port of Kavála there is the fishing pier of Kavála (40° 55, 7’N - 024°23, 6’E) It is used mostly from fishing boats as well as from ships that unload concrete. The small port is protected by a mole which is 320 m long and which is located on the port’s southeast side. Upon the mole there is an operating light structure.
The mole is quayed from its root up to its curved point and at the rest of the mole there are tying spots, upon which vessels carrying liquid cement usually unload. At the mole’s inner root a quay extends towards the northwest, which is used for the mooring of fishing vessels (220 m wide). The depths inside the mole are in between 6 to 8.5 m and decrease up to 3.5 m, as we move to the north.
In a distance of approximately 300m to the north of the port, there is a 70-meter long pier that extends towards the southeast, with depths of 5 m on its head. This pier is not used anymore for the mooring of vessels since it has been eroded.

When Apostle Paul dreamt of a tall impressive Macedonian man who stood in front of him and asked him to “come and pray in Macedonia” he decided to set sails for Neapolis. In winter of the year 49, Apostle Paul landed for the first time on the Greek mainland in Agios Nikolaos area closed to Neapoli (today’s Kavala).
