Summer vacation in Asprovalta, Greece

Enjoy the amazing beaches and crystalline blue water in Asprovalta, Greece!

Greek beaches are famous for a reason – they are huge so there’s place for everyone! The sea water is amazingly clear with no seaweed. Often the beaches in Asprovalta are partially prepared with sunbeds and umbrellas, although some parts are kept empty.

How to get there

Asprovalta is located on the Aegan sea coast, halfway between Thessaloniki and Kavala. It’s easily accessible by highway A2 (E90) between Kavala and Thessaloniki. If you’re travelling from Europe, you can cross Bulgaria via E79 and transfer to A2 highway close to Thessaloniki. The other option is to follow E79 through Bulgaria to Serres and follow the smaller Greek roads from then until Asprovalta. Using Google Maps is the best solution, also you can follow the road signs, which are relatively straight-forward.

The closest airport to Asprovalta is in Thessaloniki which is around an hour drive away.

Accomodation

Asprovalta is a small resort village and does not have any big hotel chains or complexes. Most of the accomodation the village can offer are guesthouses of various size and family hotels. We chose a guesthouse – Dionysos, which you can view here.┬áIf you want to book your stay in Dionysos with a 10% discount, you can follow the link here.

Dionysos is located very close to the beach, just a 3 minute walk. It’s a family-owned guesthouse with a garden which we really enjoyed. The hostess speaks English very well, so we had no trouble communicating our needs. We found the room to be clear and spacy enough, with a small kitchenette, a fridge, private bathroom and a terrace.

Parking is available on site, the city center is also very close so if you need to do a little shopping, you can reach the closest store within 7 minute walk from the guesthouse.

How we spent our time

We were in Asprovalta for only 4 days, so most of the time we enjoyed the beaches. The weather was nice and we managed to sunbathe and swim in the sea. The water is crystal clear and very salty, good for swimming or relaxing. The beach is huge so there’s place for everyone. There are sunbeds and umbrellas on parts of the beach we visited which are owned by the local cafe. If you want to use the facilities, you should order a drink and you can stay as long as you want. However, you’re not obligated to occupy a sunbed as there’s plenty of empty beach to enjoy.

Sunbeds and umbrellas available for everyone

Besides spending hours on the beach, we took one afternoon to visit Kavala and Thassos island – you can read all about that here!

In the evenings, we walked around the center of Asprovalta, which is full of different restaurants and bars. We had dinner in a Greek tavern, but there are also pizza and sandwich places to choose from. The prices are very affordable – we had dinner and drinks for 10 EUR per person!
