Afytos, the most beautiful balcony in Kassandra!

by: Στέλλα Μεταξά Mar 20, 2020

If you are in Possidi with your own car and you have some time available, it is worth the extra mile to get to Afitos. It is a traditional village with stone houses situated on a hill, overlooking the beautiful Aegean sea. Don't miss it!

When you enter the beautiful village of Afytos, you will have to park your car at some point and continue walking, because it’s traditional center is a pedestrian zone. All around you you will see magnificently crafted stone-houses and a square with a church from 1859 (Aghios Dimitrios). Nearby is also a Folklore museum, worth a visit if you find it open.

After this square you will enter a narrow street that takes you to the most famous attraction of Afytos, the cliffside pedestrian cobblestone road with a breathtaking panoramic view of Aegean sea from above. This street is full of cafes, bars, fish restaurants and handmade art galleries, all overlooking the sea, reminding us of another favorite Greek attraction: Santorini island. “On the rocks” is a nice café-bar for an early drink as well as “Fortuna bar”. “Mageia” is a more romantic spot at the end of the road with many small balconies with th same great view.

We advise you to visit Afytos in the afternoon, so that it is not so hot to walk around the cobblestoned streets and to be able to admire the amazing panoramic view of the sea and take some nice photos. After that you can have a coffee on one of the cafes with seaview or wander around the souvenir shops with handmade art. Stay even when it gets dark because Afytos is famous for it’s typical greek nightlife; a lot of café-restaurants offer live music with your wine or dinner.
