Access to Agiokampos: Agiokampos is far away 16 km from the Agia and 51 km from Larissa.

Arrival by Car, Moto, Camper Van: From Athens (393 km): Take the E75 road from Athens to Larissa. After the tools of Moschochorio turn right to the second exit (Agia). After 50 m, at the traffic lights, turn left with direction to Agia - Agiokampos. Continue on your way to the provincial road that leads you directly to Agiokampos.

From Thessaloniki (151 km): Take the E75 road from Thessaloniki to Larissa. Just after Rapsani and before Tempi turn left after the bridge of the Pinios River and drive straight to Stomio - Kokkino Nero - Agiokampos. Continue along the provincial road, following detours of local settlements.

The ring road starting from Agiokampos and reaching Stomio has an asphalt roadway and offers easy access to all beaches, while it offers visitors a beautiful journey through the green landscape of Kissavos.

Arrival by Bus, Train: If you come outside Larissa you can choose to either train or bus to Larissa. From Larissa to reach a coastal area you choose the bus transportation which especially during summer months make connections about every hour. Also, in summertime there is direct connection from Athens and Thessaloniki.

Arrival by Airplane: The closest airports are: Thessaloniki Airport (International Airport “Makedonia”) 183 km north, Volos Airport (Nea Anchialos National Airport) 110 km southern and Athens International Airport (Eleftherios Venizelos) 409 km southeastern.


Access to Greece:

Arrival by Airplane: The new airport of Athens “Eleftherios Venizelos”, one of the best airports in Europe, (IATA: ATH, ICAO: LGAV) is located in Spata Town and serves flights to Greece daily from several international airlines from all over the world. You can take a charter flight, so you can carry your windsurf equipment with you as well.

The metro and the Proastiakos-Suburban railway, as well as taxis and buses to and from Athens are to be found opposite the main exit of the airport. The distance is 44 km. The bus journey takes between 35 and 45 minutes to the city centre at Syntagma (Parliament) Square (of course depending on the time and traffic), therefore the best way is to take the “Athens metro” that connects the airport with Athens and Piraeus. There are car hire agencies at the airport, in case you want to rent a vehicle.

Thessaloniki is the second main aerial entrance to Greece.  The International Airport “Macedonia” of Thessaloniki (IATA code: SKG) connects the region with approximately 31 countries and 81 destinations with direct flights, as well as 35 cities and islands in Greece (direct flights and transit). There you can take a coach or a taxi to reach the destination of your choice.

Arrival by Ferry/Boat: If you are coming from the European continent and you prefer to take the ferry from an Italian Port, you need to head towards Italy and the Italian ports of Ancona, Venice Bari or Brindisi. Those ports have daily connections to Corfu, Igoumenitsa and Patras. If you are coming from Aegean Sea (from a Greek Island, Turkey or Cyprus) you will reach one of the Attica’s Ports in Piraeus, Rafina or Lavrio.

Arrival by Car, Moto, Camper Van, Bus: From Italy: Igoumenitsa --> Egnatia Odos Motorway towards Thessaloniki, From Turkey: Kipi --> Egnatia Odos Motorway towards Thessaloniki, From Albania: Kakavia --> Greek National Road towards Ioannina & Egnatia Odos towards Thessaloniki, From F.Y.R.O.M.: Evzoni --> Greek National Road towards Thessaloniki until reaching the Egnatia Odos Motorway, From Bulgaria: Promachonas --> Greek National Road towards Thessaloniki until reaching the Egnatia Odos Motorway. Connection from Egnatia Odos Motorway to the Chalkidiki Road Network: Exit K1 Thessaloniki, Exit K4 Thessaloniki, Exit Redina & Exit Vrasna-Asprovalta

Arrival by Train: Train travel is not so much in fashion anymore due to the complexity of the journey through the Balkans. Rail services link Thessaloniki with, Athens, Thrace and Patra. The line through what was once Yugoslavia provides connections with Central and Western Europe. The line through Bulgaria connects to Eastern Europe and the line through Istanbul, Turkey with the countries of the Near East.

If you choose to come to Attica by train, when you’ll arrive to “Stathmos Larissis” station, you’ll get the metro Line 2 with direction to “Agios Dimitrios” and after four stops you’ll arrive to Syntagma.
