Sea Kayaking and Paddle Board Holidays

Damouhari  is a hamlet on the Aegean side of Pelion. In the present day this is an excellent base for Sea kayaking and Paddle board holidays. Until a few decades ago all merchandise in the area was transported by mule train. They did this on the cobbled mule-paths winding their way through olive groves and chestnut forests  to the mountain villages of Tsagarada and Mouresi . With the opening of roads and advent of the motor vehicle. Damouhari lost its importance as a trading station but gained popularity. It is now a miniature sea-side resort that offers lucky visitors a retreat from the grind of urban life.
