Nei Pori is one of the most underrated vacation destinations in Greece, a hidden gem worth adding to your Greece bucket list.

In Nei Pori you won’t find any ancient ruins or impressive citadels, but a huge sandy beach, lots of hotels, villas and apartments, and plenty of seafront restaurants and tavernas.

Before 2011, the coastal village of Nei Pori (alternative spelling Neoi Poroi) wasn’t even a village. It was part of the East Olympos municipality. Even so, it still had one of the best beaches on the Olympic Riviera, up to par with Olympic Beach, the neighboring resort in Katerini.

Nei Pori Beach

Nei Pori Beach stretches along the entire village and even beyond it. It counts about 5km and it is a Blue Flag beach.

The fine sand, the crystal clear water and the convenience of a wide and lively promenade make Nei Pori the perfect place in Pieria to book a beach vacation.

What can be better than laying on the beach and looking at the majestic Mount Olympus with its peaks surrounded by white clouds?
