A Mini Guide to Kavala

What can you Tell me About Kavala?
Kavala is a port city with several routes operating to and from it. It’s also an important archaeological site as the port has been operating for thousands of years. The city is also close to the Via Egnatia, the ancient road that went from Rome to the Turkish border and beyond to Istanbul. The city is also near where Phillip of Macedon built his city of Phillipoi and the remains of it still stand today. It’s now quite big with its commercial success dependent on the port.

How do I get to Kavala?
Kavala has several international flights from around Europe and three flights from the UK with Thomson Airways from Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham. Once at the airport you’ll find that you’re nearer to the town of Chrysoupoli, around twenty minutes from Kavala.

What’s Kavala Airport Like?
As an international airport, the facilities are very reasonable. There’s a duty free shop as well as other gift shops and a kiosk serving pre-packed snacks, papers and drinks. There are no banking facilities but there is a good restaurant/café serving hot and cold snacks.

What is There to do in and Around Kavala?
Kavala has a lot of history and you don’t have to go far to find it. From ancient Phillipoi on the outskirts of the city to the archaeology museum in Kavala itself, you’ll find out lots about the rise of Alexander and the Macedonian empire. Ammolofoi beach around seven miles from the city is beautiful but, as the only decent beach in the region, is regularly crowded. For a great view out over the city and the surrounding countryside, climb up to the Kastro where, for only a couple of euros, you’ll have the best view of Kavala.
