Kallirachi Village

Kallirachi

Kallirachi is a mountainous village located in western Thassos and is one of the oldest settlements on the island. Inhabitants moved to the current location of the village and they abandoned the old village named Kakirachi, when there was no danger of pirate raids. Residents of Kakirachi had built high walls around the village in order to protect themselves from pirate raids. Today, the settlement is situated on the slopes of a hill overlooking the bay of Kavala and the Mount Athos. The village preserves its long tradition of customs, architecture and the way of dwellers’ life who stand out for their hospitality. It is worthwhile to cross the paved alleys of the settlement and discover traditional houses unspoiled in time. The trademark of the village is the central square with its traditional cafes where you can enjoy a refreshing drink and get in touch with locals.

Skala Kallirachi

Two km away from Kallirachi is situated the seaside village of Skala Kallirachi. It boasts a large modern port in which fishing boats and yachts are moored. As the sky loses its blue colors and the sun dries the Aegean with golden shades, a walk around the port or a dinner at seaside taverns will enchant you. To the left and right of the port, there are two wonderful beaches.

At the exit of the village you will find the small settlement named Klisma. The trademark of this settlement is the small houses that are built near the waves and its two fish taverns.
