Located between Gerakini and Olynthos, the sandy beach of Kalyves existed in the site of the ancient city Mikiverna which was independent and important, due to its location and port of the famous ancient city of Olynthos. No systematic excavations in the area of the ancient city have taken place however.
The sand unfolds for miles and famed bars interfere with the pure white beach with fine sand in a verdant and hilly background. Famous for its atmospheric sunsets, Skala Fourkas is a modern touristic center with a nice beach and a plethora of rented rooms, fish-taverns and bars.
Located on the coastline of the beach Vergia up to Nea Kallikrateia, Gallini beach is a great place to enjoy the crystal sea and the sandy beach. The coastline is characterized by low depth something which makes it ideal for families with small children.
Skotina attracts tourists mainly from Europe as it is situated in front of the blue Aegean Sea and the foothills of Mount Olympus. The bright sun and the vivid colors, the crystal sea and the golden sandy beaches remind us why the Greek Gods chose this area for their residence.
It is located 36 km away from Katerini and 56 km from Larisa and it is found at the south-east of the prefecture. The beach is under the castle of Platamonas, in a small creek and due to its location, it is occasionally also called Kastro.
On the south shores of cape Mikró Émvolo there is a small port suitable for berthing of pleasure and fishing boats. The small port is protected by a 400-meter-long windward angled breakwater of southeast direction, on the end of which a light operates, and a 100-meter-long leeward breakwater of southwest direction.
