About Plomari

The area of Plomari  consists of the town of Plomari and the villages Akrasi, Abeliko, Megalochori, Neochori, Paleochori, Plagia and Trigonas.

The town of Plomari was built in 1845 around the Church of Saint Nikolaos and river Sedoundas by famous sailors and merchants. The modern town is built around the historical center to the east and west facing the endless blue of the Aegean Sea. To the East you will find the beach of Saint Isidoros (Agios Isidoros) which is named after the church that stands over the beach. To the West you will find the beach and picturesque area of Ammoudeli. Next to the port there is the area of the old shipyard (Tarssanas) where all kinds of sailing-vessels are constructed using traditional tools and methods that date back to antiquity. The area around the church of Agios Nikolaos, protector of all seamen, is full of traditional houses built next to the river banks. Walking the traditional paved road, you will find Platanos square, named after a huge oriental plane tree at the center of the square.

 

Plomari has a unique way to welcome every visitor. You will feel that time passes by slowly allowing you to appreciate the beauty around you.

 

Warm summers, mild winters and a beautiful spring compose the weather all year in Plomari. But Plomari looks great in autumn colors. Coming to Plomari in the summer and early autumn you will find yourselves enjoying a swim at the best beach of the island, Agios Isidoros.

Plomari, is and always will be the world capital of Ouzo. The most famous drink in Greece that locals enjoy every day. Ouzo is a drink flavored with aniseed, product of a special distillation process. There is no other place in the world where you can taste ouzo paired with the best food and the warmest of people. Ouzo, is an irreplaceable part of the everyday life of every local that the people in Plomari use to say “let’s go out for ouzo” meaning “let’s go out to eat”. Every day you will see locals sitting around a table, sharing laughs and discussing over ouzo, enjoying local delicacies called “mezedes” that are served in small dishes. We strongly recommend a visit to “ouzo” museums and local distilleries to witness yourselves the tradition most closely associated with Plomari.
