Larissa coastline

 

Yes, it is true! The prefecture of Larissa has coasts. In fact it has one of the biggest continuous coasts that is 13 km long, starts from Agiokampos and ends in Velika.

The most striking feature of these coasts is that they are multiform (there are both sandy and pebbly beaches) and they combine the green color of Kissavos with the blue color of the Aegean Sea.

A ring road starting from Agiokampos and reaching Stomio connects almost all coasts while it offers visitors a beautiful journey through the green landscape of Kissavos.
