Our Tip

Katerini is a hidden gem that is often overlooked by visitors heading to Thessaloniki and other larger resorts in northern Greece. The seaside location of the town is a major draw, with 80km of pristine beaches to explore, as well as the historic and archaeological sites, such as Dion village which dates back to 5,000 BC. The beaches of Paralia, Korinos and Olympiaki Akti are particularly popular with tourists and locals alike and a great choice for sun-seeking or watersports. Take a leisurely drive out to Litochoro village for superb views and enjoy the wonderful shopping and food on offer in the town itself. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and independent boutiques in the main tourist area of Paralia Katerini, and nothing nicer than enjoying a cold drink on a terrace that overlooks the beach, perhaps with a large plate of the freshest mezze. Love great wine? Don't forget to head to Rapsani to discover local vineyards and fantastic vintages, all with their own rich stories and history.
