Alan Rogers Review

There is a warm welcome from the English-speaking brother and sister team who own and run Camping Hellas. The campsite has been in the family since the sixties, when tourists first asked if they could camp overnight and use the facilities of the taverna. It is in a beautiful setting in a 500-year-old olive grove, right next to the beach and the calm blue waters of the Pagasitikos gulf. There are around 120 pitches all with 16A electricity. Pitch sizes vary and some parts are more level than others, but shade is plentiful thanks to the olive trees.

Everything is kept spotlessly clean and the owners have many plans for further improvements. The restaurant is a traditional Greek taverna serving local seafood and there is also a bar conveniently located next to the beach. The surrounding area has plenty to explore, including the picturesque villages of Mount Pelion or the island of Skiathos. At weekends a steam train departs from the nearby village of Ano Lechonia on a journey through spectacular mountain scenery.


Two modern sanitary blocks, both very clean with British style toilets and open washbasins. Very good facilities for disabled visitors. Laundry room with sinks and washing machines, ironing facilities. Motorhome services. Shop, bar, restaurant and takeaway from 1 May. TV room. Dogs are not allowed on the beach. WiFi over site (free).
