Situated along a gorgeous stretch of sandy beach on the blue waters of the Pagasitic Gulf, Kala Nera offers visitors an ideal setting from which to enjoy and experience all of the magic of Pelion.
The village's name actually translates as meaning "Good Waters" (Kala meaning Good and Nera meaning waters). This, however, will be evident the moment you arrive and set eyes on the glistening sea, as it laps up against the soft sandy beach.
